exciting! Happy Independence Day Weekend everyone!
This is such a great time of the year to celebrate the Declaration of Independence when the Continental Congress declared that the thirteen American colonies were no longer subject to the King of Britain, King George III.
Did you know that the Congress had actually voted to declare independence two days earlier on July 2nd, but it was not officially declared until July 4th?
At Coreware, we are proud of our country and proud to stand alongside so many great businesses and individuals who love our country and the freedoms that we get to enjoy. We sincerely thank you for your business and we sincerely hope you all have an incredible weekend.

exciting! new feature Invoice Updates!
You can now create Invoice types AND send reminders for invoices. Especially useful for layaways! Go to Payments -> Invoicing -> Invoice Types.
Additionally, you can now check the "Requires User" flag to a payment method in order to make this feature only available to users who are logged in. Go to Payments -> Payment Methods. This was done for layaways/invoices but could be used for any payment!
improvement Book Days Ahead by User Group Using the Public Facing Event Scheduler
We made an update so that user groups will have priority if there is a conflict between setting the DAYS_AHEAD text chunk code for user group, user type, and no user group/type. This will allow you to give special permissions to certain users so that they can book out facilities further in advance than other users!
Please note that the Public Facing Event Scheduler can be used to book out any type of event or event to allow customers to set appointments and meetings.
If you would like to learn more about how to set this up, and what it looks like, we have this series here where we explain how to set this up for a gun range in particular.
improvement Additionally, we now have better Page Text Chunk Documentation directly on the page which will include the usable page text chunks for a particular page.
new feature Added Contact Notes to the recurring payment maintenance page
This is used to improve membership management so that you can make notes on a contact's payment status/issues so that they can be seen directly on the contact record.
improvement Added filter for Orders with low inventory Items
Access this in your Orders Dashboard.
new feature Expiration Days and Emails for Forms
Forms can now include an expiration day as well as emails. Please submit a ticket if you think you may have a need for this!

Placeholders are now more generalized and codified. You can add the following placeholders in any page or template.
improvement Added a field named "Metro Area" to locations. This will allow a company to show all stores, for instance, in the Houston area.
new feature exciting! Promotions
Promotions can now be restricted to people who have made specific previous purchases. This will allow a dealer, for instance, to give a 10% discount on specific products (perhaps a membership) for 30 days after a person purchases a class.
