New Wishlist Requests

Below is a list of recent ideas on our wishlist. We plan to regularly include new wishlist ideas in future newsletters.

Customers regularly share ideas about what they would like us to add to the software. What we don't know is how many other people are interested in the idea. If you see something that looks interesting to you, vote for it. We prioritize features based upon the number of votes and the difficulty to implement. Knowing whether other people are interested in an idea or not helps us know if we should spend development time on it or on something else.
