It have been around 4 months since we released our public beta version of Gaurilla. Since then, it went under a lot of changes based on the feedback that early users like yourself have provided. We have been working day in and out to bring more value to your small/medium business through Gaurilla, and the response that we have been getting is phenomenal – people are loving using it.
We are a strong community now and the major part in making Gaurilla so valuable was yours. Yes, yours. Without you, we’d have been just another startup in the garage. Please accept a heartfelt thank you from the Owlgrinners. (More details about the T Shirts below.)
For the last couple of weeks, we haven’t released a lot of big features because we had been working on making the whole architecture simpler and better for you. And today, we bring it to you.
We received a lot of feedback that you aren’t liking the way you have to first select the workspace and then start working in it. We made it like that to make it easier to manage multiple businesses, but we found that not a lot of you have multiple businesses. Hence, we made the already simple Gaurilla even simpler to use.
Now, when you login, you will directly be shown the dashboard of your company, without you have to manually select the company to work in. What’s better is that even if you manage multiple businesses, you can switch between them from the new bar that your account has got.
In future, this bar will evolve more based on your requirements, but for now, it allows you to manage your personal profile and the company. You will find the options to manage your personal profile on the right and for the company on the left.
I had more than one companies set up with Gaurilla, which one will be selected by default now?
We found that some of you had more than one company set up in their accounts and for now, we had made the first created company of each user as their default company. If you had just one, it would be your default company now.
But do not worry, if majority of your work is in any other company, you can change the default company. Here’s how to do it.
From the left hand side of the new bar, select Change and then select the company you want to work in. Once selected, click on the same drop down menu again and you will find an option to Set as default in it. Click on it to set this company as your default company.
Every time you will login, you will be presented with the dashboard of this company now. Pretty slick, no?
That’s awesome. But how do I control when my financial year ends?
Due to this change in the architecture, we had to configure when the financial year ends for each company. As it is often, we made it to be the end of calendar year as default for your company, which is 31st December of each year.
But like everything else, you can change it too. Select the company for which you want to change the ending and then click on the Manage under the drop down menu on the left-hand side of the new bar on the top.
Scroll below till you see the option to change the financial year ending.
Select the appropriate ending and click on the Update button for the changes to take effect. You don’t need to do anything else. Everything else is done automagically by your favourite superhero behind the scenes.
What’s next on the plans?
We have got fantastic customers like you who use Gaurilla everyday, and we have got some others too who want their data from their old app to be imported into Gaurilla first before they can extract the value out of it.
In our next phase, we are doing just that. We are working on ways for you to import data from your old app into Gaurilla so that you can be up and running in no time with your new superhero.
To effectively prioritise our import feature, we would like to know which is the current app you use to manage your business? Please write it in the comments below and we will then be able to prioritise the order of apps we can build import feature for. (Don’t worry, we won’t make your comment publicly visible. We care for your privacy.)
I really love Mr Gaurilla. Can I have a free T Shirt?
Of course! We always love to delight you. We have got these T Shirts for you. Love these? Claim yours now.
PS: We have limited quantity of these awesome tees. Thus to filter out active users like you from the ones who would misuse this opportunity, we would require you to have at least one client (here’s how to create one) and three invoices (here’s how to create invoices) in your account.
