Coming soon… ShopFileR 2.1

Posted on August 29, 2010. Filed under: Uncategorized |

One of the features that we have wanted in ShopFileR since the beginning was a full featured calendar. We started several times to add that feature, but, each time, the design was not what we really wanted.

Enter Google Calendar.

Google Calendar is a full featured calendar, capable of being updated anywhere from the internet, by anyone that you allow. It will send email or text messages to remind you of appointments, etc. and provide for single appointments or reoccurring events.

If you don’t currently have a Google Calendar, sign up with Google and give it a try. Its free….and soon an option to display your calendar directly in ShopFileR.

Your Google Calendar can be displayed along with your favorite links and contacts. It is an option however, and if you don’t want it, you don’t have to turn it on.

More features added to ShopFileR 2.1

In 2.1 we are adding some trigonometry so you don’t have to do it yourself.  ShopFileR will calculate triangle sides and angles, circle radii and circumferances, rectangle diagonals, and arc radii, and more.  Its a start and more may be added in future versions.

Also, anywhere in ShopFileR where you have entered an address of a contact, customer, etc, we have added two Google Map buttons.  One uses Google Maps to pinpoint the location of the address and the second button will display the map and directions from your location to the address.

Planned release for ShopFileR 2.1 is sometime during October 2010.

ShopFileR 2.0 is here!

Posted on July 12, 2010. Filed under: Uncategorized |

ShopFileR 2.0 is now available with a lot of new features.

You can now capture web addresses directly from your browser by double clicking on the ShopFileR icon in the Windows system tray, pressing the ‘Insert Link from…’ button, or from the clipboard. Its now a lot quicker and easier to capture web addresses while you are browsing!

Web pages can now be saved to your ShopFileR database for offline viewing or future reference in case the page is changed or dissappears. This is great for saving forum messages that tend to go away after a period of time. Even the pictures on the web page are saved!

If your PC or laptop has a microphone, you can record notes directly from the Front Page, in the Notes, Projects, or Tool sections to voice annotate any entry. Voice notes can be played back directly from ShopFileR. This is ideal for making voice notes when discussing a project, etc.

A couple of fun tabs can be optionally added to the Front Page. A ‘Weather’ tab simply displays the current weather for your location and a ‘Stock Market’ tab will give updates on whatever (NYSE) stock ticker symbols you would like to see. Both the weather and stock market data are updated approximately every 10 minutes when they are being displayed. You do have to activate these tabs and provide your location and any ticker symbols you would like to see. Check the ShopFileR help for more information.

Again, thanks for using ShopFileR!
