Hours Grid
You can now enter hours into a large grid instead of the traditional lists. Both methods are efficient. Choose one or the other in Preferences.

Hours and Minutes
In the new hours grid, you can enter hours and minutes instead of the traditional hours and tenths of hours.

Upgrade Wizard
The new upgrade wizard guides you through the process of upgrading your data to a new version.

Touch-Screen Assistant History
The Reporter now keeps a historical record of every time a volunteers signs in or out on the Touch-Screen Assistant.

Dymo Label Printers
The Reporter has always been able to print labels on Dymo printers and now it continues that by enabling you to use the newest models.

Smarter Filters
New, more powerful filters almost read your mind to give you exactly what you need on any report. The Reporter examines a filter and adjusts the result based upon all of your choices at once, even if you enter some conflicting limitations. It also includes some new limitations so you can request just those stations or jobs where hours were served during any period of time as well as whether a volunteer has a photo or not.

The Reporter has been optimized to speed up intensive operations like upgrading and indexing.

More Job/Client reports
Even more reports are available for jobs and clients that list addresses, phones, and emails.

Backup Your Data
Making backups has been improved and streamlined.

Live Updates
You now have the option to be informed whenever new, free updates are available without automatically downloading them. This will help a few of you that have firewalls that prevent automatic live updates. Make this choice in Preferences.

Lifetime Hours
The Years of Service report now reports lifetime hours as of the date of the report even if the report is being run for a long ago period.

Touch-Screen Assistant "Who's Here" Report
We have a new report to print who is currently signed in on the Touch-Screen Assistant. You print it right from the "Who's Here" tab on the Touch-Screen Assistant screen.

Touch-Screen Assistant Time Out Interval
There is a new setting that enables lengthening the timeout interval. This can be useful if your volunteers have trouble selecting a job before the default 30 seconds is up.

New Job Spreadsheets
Three new job spreadsheets including the popular Do-It-Yourself spreadsheet option.

Birthday Lists
On the Volunteer Do-It-Yourself spreadsheet, you can now include three separate columns for birth date month, day, and year. This can be handy if you want to produce a list of birthdays in a coming month without listing the year or age of your volunteer.
