We are pleased to announce TopLine Designer v4.  We've made a lot of improvements by adding new features and taking care of some issues.  See the list below for detailed information on what has changed.

Updated the TopLine Designer Update program.

ACT! Custom Table Schema Bug

We have been made aware of a bug in ACT! where you will be unable to add new fields to custom tables and where you are unable to modify the schema of existing fields.  If you are experiencing this issue, Sage is testing a hotfix that will resolve it.

TopLine Designer 3.1.0.9

We are pleased to announce TopLine Designer 3.1.0.9.  This release introduces a few new features and fixes a few bugs.  This release can be applied by downloading the full install package from our website at http://www.toplineresults.com/products/downloads/toplinedesigner3.htm or if you already have Designer installed you can use the automatic update feature by going to Start->Programs->TopLine Results->TopLine Designer Update.

TopLine Dash 7.0.8.4

A new version of TopLine Dash has been released.  The only change is to add compatibility with TopLine Designer 3.1 and higher.  Due to changes in TopLine Designer, TopLine Dash stopped working with custom tables.  If you are experiencing an error when trying to view dashboard after installing Designer, you should install this update.

Use Date Offsets in TopLine Dash

Have you ever wanted to have a report that always showed a relative date?  Sure, there are pre-built dates that allow you to do this like Next Week, Start of Week, Start of Year, etc...  But what if you don't see what you need in these options?  TopLine Dash allows you to add or subtract any number of days from any of these relative dates.

TopLine Designer Import Schema Resource Issue

There appears to be a hickup when you try to create a large number of new tables and fields really fast.  TopLine Designer does this when it imports an entire custom table schema.  The problem is that ACT! tries to refresh itself after every field is created but after awhile it runs out of resources and starts giving errors because it can't refresh anymore.
