Brand New Expenses Module

07/10/2014

 
Hi Everyone!
 
We continue working to make Feng Office better for you, and this is why we want to introduce you to the brand new Expenses module!

 

The Expenses Module gives you the power to:

  • Keep track of all the money spent on Clients, Projects, Specific Tasks and more!.
  • Never forget to invoice and get paid for your work faster.
  • Improve your ability to estimate new project budgets accurately.
  • Track profitability on projects, clients as easily as on time and materials for the projects.

Features of the Expenses Module:

  • Graphs for you to keep track of your expenses in a practical and quick view.
  • Status selection to know if your expenses are approved, budgeted, pending, and more.
  • The ability to add an unlimited number of payments to an expense, allowing you to set the number of installments of the payment.
  • Filter by Date Range and Status, for a quicker view of the specific expense you want.
  • Make detailed and summarized payment reports that list the expenses grouped by clients and projects.

What do you think of Feng Office new Website?

11/20/2013


A couple of weeks ago we started to roll out Feng Office new Website.


The redesign will eventually impact all of our webpages.


While we are still tying up some loose ends, we are already very happy with the new design.


Since this is still a work in progress, and the team is eager to improve it more, we would love to get your feedback. :)


The new site wouldn’t have been possible without the help of our good friends at Dugson. So if you are looking for professional and creative website design, we would like to recommend you to get in touch with them. They are quite busy, but will get to you as soon as they can (Tip: make a compelling story when you reach out to them).


Everything back at normal

08/06/2013

 
Whew!
 
What a crazy weekend we had.
 
Thanks again for all Feng Sky clients for your patience and understanding on the DNS issue.
 
Just to clarify a few things:

All Feng Sky data is redundant… in different geographical locations!

 
We never brag much about this, but we have developed a very robust system to protect our client’s data integrity.
 
The day when you sign up to a paid Feng Sky account, an automatic process starts making backups of all your Data; on a separate location.
 
We do this with all Databases and files.
 
Plus, we back up to a third location every weekend.
 
So it would take a very large-global-disaster to affect your Feng Office data. If that ever happens… we are willing to bet we will be having bigger issues than our Feng Office accounts (No earth = no teamwork).

Feng Office doesn’t use Bluehost for hosting

 
Many years ago we bought the www.FengOffice.com domain from Bluehost, and we use Bluehost (DNS) Name Servers. Bluehost is our registrar (The company that sold us our Domain Name).
 
Feng Office uses Dedicated servers only, as it is a system that frequently requires a lot of processing power. That is why we don’t recommend hosting on shared hosting services (unless it is a very simple and non-critical installation).
 
We are working with Bluehost to prevent dependency on a single Data Center for their DNS.
 
While we hope to get a positive response, we are taking measures to provide for a better mitigation plan if BOTH Name Servers fail.
 
Nerdy FYI: DNS protocol calls for a Primary and a Secondary Name Server. It makes sense to have each of those servers in different Data Centers.

Sunday issue affecting a smaller number of clients was us

 
To top the Friday issue, we had an incident with one of our servers this Sunday.
 
This only affected one of our servers and for approximately 4 hours in total.
 
But we understand the frustration of the clients affected by this second downtime.
 
We have already migrated most of the installations relying on that server and will hopefully finish with all before the end this week.

Again: Thank you!

 
We want to say it one more time:
 
Thank you for your understanding! We know s**t happens… but it isn’t fair that it should happen so often!
 
All the time while we were suffering with this issue we received almost nothing but support and patience from our clients.
 
We are proud of you, and very grateful for your continuous choice.
 
We promise to keep learning and to keep on improving not only the system, and not only our customer service, but more importantly the wonderful relationships we have gained.
 
Sincerely,
 
Conrado Vina, on behalf of everyone at the Feng Office team.
