TopLine Dashboard 8.0 Released!

TopLine Dash 8.0 has been released via the TopLine Update program.  This is a huge milestone as we are introducing a huge new feature that will increase productivity dramatically.  We're finally giving people what they have wanted for years.

TopLine Dashboard 7.6.1

New printing functionality!  This is included in version 7.6.1.

 TopLine Dashboard now creates professional looking reports.  You can output the results to your printer or to PDF.  Here is an example:

TopLine Dashboard 7.6

TopLine Designer 7.6 has been released.  The major new feature is compatibility with ACT! 2010, however there are also a number of bug fixes as well.  We have also changed the format for distributing our addons.  We used to release a different setup file for each version of ACT! but now we bundle them all together into one setup file and the software chooses which version to load on it's own.

Troubleshooting TopLine Dash and Designer – Getting it to Start

If you are trying to install TopLine Dash and/or TopLine Designer and when you open ACT! you are not seeing the menus or toolbar items that you are expecting, then follow these instructions.  Also, if you see the menu or toolbar items but they do nothing when you click on them, these instructions should help as well.

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

We are pleased to announce TopLine Designer  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

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.

TopLine Designer 3.0.1

Here's what's new:

Added field level security.

Added the ability to link a record to more than one contact.

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 for Web Progress

For those of you who are eagerly awaiting TopLine Designer for ACT! for Web, I would like you to know that we are not far off from our first release.  Here is an example of what things are looking like right now.
