Today we’re excited to release FilePro 2.1.6.5, an update that’s now available to all clients. This version includes a number of new features to help you use FilePro more productively – the best of which are detailed below.

Reports – Save PDF to file or attach to email

You can now save reports as a PDF and copy it to a File or attach it to an email. To do so, simply select ‘Save as’ in the Report Option screen. You can select a default folder for these reports through the User Preferences screen.

Reorder timesheets

It’s now possible to reorder your timesheets for the Invoice Itemisation Report when they have been billed on a debtor invoice. To do so, create your invoice, right click on any timesheet and select the ‘Reorder Timesheets’ option. You are then able to rearrange timesheets for items on the same date.

If you manage clients with multiple matters, you can now customise the caption that appears on top of the Files screen. By default, the screen will show just the File Code and Name, however you can also display the matter description or a number of other customer variables through the User Preferences screen.
