|In this months newsletter: What we’re working on,
Ali Rowan User Profile, Question of the Month and all of our other news!
|Keep track of your expenses
|One of our most requested features is the ability to add expenses to your projects. We’ve listened and we’re working on this feature. Soon you will be able track different types of expenses, quickly and easily add them to invoices and compare them with turnover on the dashboard graph.
|Send project estimates to clients
|Another much requested feature is project quotes/estimates. This alongside expenses should make Solo a more rounded tool, handling project workflow from start to finish. The new feature will let users send branded estimates to clients for approval. Once approved the data will automatically be added to the project. Once the project is complete one click will turn your estimate into an invoice. Simple.

|More help and support from us
