Productive Monthly Updates: May

You’re probably gearing up for summer, and we completely understand that.

In fact, be sure to check out how you can manage time off in Productive and stay organized when your team goes on their much-deserved vacations.

But for now, let’s dig in and see what’s been released in May.

Major Invoicing Improvements

Our focus on bringing you the smoothest invoicing experience continues – here are all the improvements we’ve released.

Filters on “What Do You Want To Invoice” screen allow you to filter budgets by your parameters. This is especially useful when your invoice is made out of multiple budgets, and you quickly need to find budgets that should go together. For example, you can find budgets in a specific currency, or where the for invoicing amount is of a certain value.

Next, we’ve added new integrations options for customers in Belgium and the Netherlands. Payments sync are now supported if Exact is your tool of choice, or you can integrate with Twinfield.

Also, if it so happens that you have unrecognised time on an invoice, you’ll get a notification and an explanation of the issue.

Finally, you can now send an invoice multiple times, even if it was sent before. If, for example, a client needs a duplicate or they have misplaced the original invoice.

New In Expenses

When adding expenses, you’ll see the quantity field, allowing you to define how many items are there – this will make life easier for you, your clients, and the supplier. And if you’re using expense approvals, you’ll now receive a notification on your email when an expense needs to be approved by you, making the whole process just a bit quicker.

Sneak Peek: Redesigned Navigation

Productive is growing rapidly, so we wanted to redesign the interface to make it more visually appealing, and flexible enough for all the upcoming features. The new UI also gives you more screen real estate, and will make accessing your favourites (like Tasks, Budgets and Docs) much faster. 

If you’d like to try it out in beta, send us a message and we’ll enable it for you immediately.

Wait, There’s More!

  • Users can now change their own email in their Profile, without navigating to Settings
  • If you’re using Visma e-conomic, now you can create a new customer when exporting an invoice
  • Pages in Docs can now be duplicated
  • Use command + K shortcut to summon Quick Search

Still To Come:

In the next few weeks, you can expect:

  • Template center
  • Purchase orders
  • Gantt layout
  • Invoice payment reminders

We’re always looking to make your experience of using Productive better.

We’ll keep you updated as we ship more improvements. The following Monthly Updates will arrive at the beginning of July 2023.

For any questions, as always, reach out to our Customer Support.
