| Welcome back to the latest episode of “What’s New”, this time we cover an exciting new range of features and improvements across Acrual. Let’s jump right in.
Quote item description templates The long awaited templates for quote item descriptions feature has landed. Now you can save the description templates directly within Acrual; no longer do you have to copy and paste between applications. This should make adding detailed descriptions to estimates a breeze as you can now set them up once and reuse.
| Over the next week or so, you’ll see a new look and feel for Acrual roll out across the application and supporting websites. This will bring with it, a fresh new modern logo and a colour palette to match.
The new Acrual logo
Under the covers, it is still the same Acrual that you know and use every day, but with a more uplifting colour palette to polish it all off.
| It has been a while since the last “What’s New”, but in that time, a lot of work has been going on behind the scenes, which has just been released to all Acrual customers. Let’s start with the big one.
Project Raptor SpaceX Falcon Heavy
To give some context to this project, let’s go on a brief journey through the history of Acrual. Acrual first started development in mid-2013 and was designed around speaking to businesses about their requirements in this area, and working out solutions which would give them the most value, which is a big part of why Acrual works so well for customers.
| Xero integration ready for use Acrual to Xero
It’s finally time to announce that the Xero and Acrual integration is now ready for use. With this, you can easily and automatically synchronise your invoices and time sheets from Acrual into Xero. Once setup, this runs along in the background and will keep everything in sync.
To get started, head into the Settings page when logged into Acrual and go to the Connections tab.
| Easier Management of Libraries We are happy to announce that you can now more easily manage your estimating library with the new import and export functionality. This will help especially when managing larger libraries with hundreds or thousands of materials and dealing with price changes across many items.
To access this new functionality, simply right click on the section at the top of your labour or materials library and select “Manage Library” as shown in the screenshot below.
