New for Manager 2.61

It’s been quiet here for a couple of months, but we’ve been busily toiling away:

Power Reports is approaching official release, and we’re now working on our second product (a QuickBooks Interface).


First the big news; HDS decided to give Power Reports it’s own button for Win-EZ Manager 2.61!

We’re excited about the added visibility for our product, but the important thing is that implementation will now be easier, since users no longer have to decided between the two report engines, or remember complicated key strokes to switch back and forth between them.




For this release we’ve also completed the last “missing piece” of Power Reports; Punches and Payroll. The new Payroll Engine has been implemented and tested, and the matching reports are being completed over the next few days. One of the great new features is that all reports will be able to calculate overtime, even Timeslip and Punch Reports.

Over the next few weeks we’ll also be adding reports based on the new “Drawer Balance” feature in Win-EZ Deposits, and building the first of several styles of Comparison Reports.


In other news: We reached an agreement with HDS to take over development of their Accounting Interface. We’ve released the first Alpha version of the QuickBooks GL Interface a couple of weeks ago, and will be adding Payroll integration in the near future. Look for a full release in the next few months.

Look for more great new features in the coming months!


Power Reports Page

Added a product page for Power Reports this afternoon.

There is a lot of great information on the current and planned feature set.



Grid Filter Detail

A short video that highlights some of the detail that’s available in the Grid Filter.

Be sure to watch in full screen!


Report Integration

Tonight I’m posting a sample of the level of integration that has been built into Power Reports.  (click the images to see the full size version)


The first sample is of a check displayed in the “Grid Filter”. This grid allows you to view and filter the available checks in the report prior to running a report.

In this sample the Voids and Comps (normally only available in the Comp Report) that were applied to the check have been added back to the underlying data. Below you can see the void displayed in the report.

The second sample is in the same Grid Filter, and shows Credit Card details that have been added back to the check. Notice the Credit Card Sequence in the Media line.




The report to the left also shows this same information.

This info is not normally available in a single report within the stock Win-EZ Manager reports.






New Report Styles Added

A quick update on Report Styles:(Click on any of the images to see the full size version)

Report Styles control the look and feel of all reports in Power Reports, and available styles can be changed from within settings.

We of course have the Win-EZ Classic style that’s been in place for many years.







We also have our new Power Reports Default style:

This style adds some color to the report by adding a boxed header and footer.

It also adds odd and even row coloring to help differentiate rows of data. This is also useful when there is multi-line data involved.






Another shot of the new Style, with subtotaled groups.

This uses a Daypart Grouping to subtotal the PLUs.

Day parts are set up system wide, and are a standard setting on most reports.





We of course have the Win-EZ Classic style:
