Feng Office 3.1 version!

By: Francisco Ponce de Leon

 
Hello everyone!!3.1
 
We have been working very hard on a new version of the system we all love =)
 
To start with, thank you all who have contributed with feedback about the new 3.0 design and usability. Fortunately it has been very well accepted as it was found more appealing and it made the system much easier to use for newcomers.
 

What surprises does it have??

Quite a lot to be honest, so we will break this article in two. Here are the main headlines:
 

  • Pushing tasks forward *
  • More flexibility in the Status formulas *
  • Automatic contact creation when you add a new Client or Prospect *
  • Choose whether to show all documents in sub-folders or just in the selected one *
  • Users can now be allowed to add Clients, Projects, Prospects or Workspaces, while not being able to edit existing ones *
  • Improved response time in Tasks Module
  • Enhancements to E-Mail Module
  • Know if your e-mails have been opened *
  • Include custom property information when importing contacts
  • Update event attendance independently of getting a confirmation reply
  •  
    *Available on Feng Professional and Enterprise only. These have been explained in more detail in this separate article.
     

    FENG 3.1 IMPROVEMENTS FOR ALL EDITIONS:

     

    You do care about speed when loading tasks, right?

    Tasks (aka activities) are crucial for business and organizations. Not having them available quickly makes things slower, so we decided to improve the response speed of our Tasks Module even further! How have we done it? By redeveloping pretty much the whole task-listing behaviour with state of the art changes!
     

    What about emails?

    Many people using Feng Office, rely on our system to manage their emails. To be speedy when replying emails is of utmost importance too, but in order to reply to an email, you must first be able to receive as quickly and efficiently as possible. Therefore, we have enhanced how the platform checks emails that use IMAP protocols with the sole purpose of saving even more of your precious time.
     
    Moreover, when one manages multiple email accounts, it can become a bit hectic and sometimes people find themselves sending an email with the wrong account. In order to prevent this from happening again, we added a new validation method before the email gets sent so that you feel more secure when doing so.
     

    Do you import contacts into the system? If so, would not you wish to import their custom properties too?

    One looks for flexibility everywhere. Usually when managing contacts we may well need additional fields that the system does not have, no matter which system we are using, so, if possible, we create them.
     
    Until now, importing contacts into Feng Office would not load up the contacts’ custom fields along with them, but… worry no more! You can now import this information too, provided that you created a custom property for these fields.
     

    Do you manage many events?

    If you do, you are going to love the new feature we worked on to manage the invitiation list, when an invitee is too busy to confirm whether he or she can show up. This allows you to both track responses from invitees, but also ensure you have the right record of attendance for future reference.

    That said, we have finished polishing off the 3.X series of the system and added the final changes and minor features that we were missing from the 2.X series. This means that those cautiously waiting for 3.X to be more stable and with the features they like, can already proceed to doing so! As usual, we will start rolling it out gradually for Feng Sky accounts on a first comes first serves basis.
     
    Feedback is our #1 tool towards improving the system, so, we would love you to share your thoughts, ideas and suggestions with us, so we invite you to please comment below or on the Feng Office Forum.
