Showcase

1. Licenses

This release adds a "license" field to each account which will allow you to restrict accounts to certain parts of the product more easily than the current permission system. Accounts with a 'Field' license will only have access the mobile app, accounts with a 'Customer' license will only have access to the customer portal, accounts with a 'Contractor' license will only have access to the contractor portal, and accounts with a 'Desk' license will have access to all areas of the product. These restrictions will be rolling out gradually over the next release or two. Default licenses have been set for all of your users already. Please review these by the May release when they'll start kicking into effect.

To help you understand how accounts are used, when viewing an account, you can now see a record of which days that account accessed the product.

The license manager (Account > License Manager) has also had a visual overhaul showing owners (has a desk license and is in the owner permission group) a summary of product usage by office staff, field technicians, customers and subcontractors.

To simplify account administration, Uptick will no longer count staff accounts that are only used occasionally (used only several times per month) against your subscription agreement, allowing you to have accounts for business owners, sales team, or accounts departments without worrying about additional license fees.
