New Features - Build 8
 1. QuickBooks Online Integration! Use QuickBooks Online Customer Information in your quote. Add QuickBooks Online product items to your quote. Create new QuickBooks Online customers, items, estimates, invoices, sales orders, purchase orders, and more. The QuickBooks Online integration requires QuoteWerks Professional or Corporate Edition and requires a monthly or annual subscription. [Service Release: 8.12]

 2. For QuoteValet users, YouTube video support! With your QuoteValet quote you can now include one or more videos to be displayed on the QuoteValet quote. You can even set one of them to start auto-playing as soon as the QuoteValet page is displayed. You can also include one video per line item. You can specify the default video(s) you would like each new Quote, Order or Invoice to include on the General tab of the QuoteValet setup window. You can also specify one video in a native database product definition which will be included in the quote for the line item when the product is added into the quote. You can see the video details for the line item in the quote by selecting the line item and clicking on the "Show/Hide Picture Panel" toolbar button above the line items grid. When adding videos to the quote, if you have setup your YouTube account information on the General tab of the QuoteValet setup, you will be able to choose from a list of all your existing videos that have already been uploaded to YouTube. If you are using a shared standardized QuoteValet template the videos will automatically just appear in the QuoteValet page. If you are using a customized QuoteValet template you will need to make some modifications to your customized template. The layout designer fields and macros of &DH_&Video1_URL, &DH_&Video1_Title, &DH_&Video2_URL, &DH_&Video2_Title, &DH_&Video3_URL, &DH_&Video3_Title, and &DI_&Video1_URL, &DI_&Video1_Title have also been added.

 4. Windows Authentication Login support. You can now setup QuoteWerks users to use their Windows Authentication to automatically log into QuoteWerks without having to enter the QuoteWerks Native Login UserName and Password on the QuoteWerks Login window. Windows Authentication only works with domains. When using the Windows Authentication Login, you will still need to set a password for the QuoteWerks Native Login.

We've negotiated an arrangement with Jenne to host their parts list to provide our mutual customers with a better ability to locate Jenne part numbers when quoting.

Previously the Jenne option would always appear even if a part number was not offeered by Jenne. [Service Release: 8.12]

 13. Effective July 2017 Supplies Network now requires all xml queries to be sent using the TLS 1.2 protocol. QuoteWerks now supports this. The TLS 1.2 protocol is not available on Windows XP machines, so any users that wish to use QuoteWerks (or any other software) to interact with Supplies Network XML services will need to be running the software on Windows Vista or higher. Additionally TLS 1.2 requires that the Microsoft .NET framework version 4.5 be installed and Internet Explorer (IE) 11 or higher needs to be installed. In Microsoft IE, TLS 1.2 must be enabled.

 3. For ConnectWise users, when creating a new Opportunity in ConnectWise for a company that did not have existing opportunities, a message was displayed "There was an error Retrieving Existing Opportunities for the ConnectWise Contact." After which, a new Opportunity could be created. The Message is no longer displayed. [Service Release: 8.12]

 4. For ConnectWise users, when creating new catalog items / products in ConnectWise, QuoteWerks was providing ConnectWise with both the SubCategory Name and Subcategory ID via the API. This was causing a problem if there were multiple SubCategories Named the same especially if one was inactive. [Service Release: 8.12]

 5. For ConnectWise users, when creating new catalog items / products in ConnectWise, if the field in QuoteWerks that was mapped to the ConnectWise ItemID contained a LineFeed, an error would be returned from ConnectWise. [Service Release: 8.12]

 7. For ConnectWise Users, when updating an Existing Opportunity in ConnectWise that was previously deleted in ConnectWise, there was not an option in QuoteWerks to create a new Opportunity in ConnectWise. [Service Release: 8.12]

 11. For Autotask Users, when updating an Opportunity in Autotask, the error ?Reference value on field: ProductID of type: Product does not exist or is invalid? in ?DLL method: UpdateOpportunityEX()? was received. This was because the default Product in Autotask was disabled in Autotask. This product is required to update an opportunity via the Autotask API. The message returned when attempting to update an opportunity now returns the specific ProductID and the Name for the Product that must be set to Active in Autotask. [Service Release: 8.12]

 12. For ConnectWise users, when adding products to a ConnectWise Opportunity Bundle, the Cost and Price would be the Cost and Price from the Catalog Item in ConnectWise and not the Cost and Price from the QuoteWerks Document. [Service Release: 8.12]

 13. For ConnectWise users, when creating a Recurring Forecast on a ConnectWise Opportunity, the following error would be returned from ConnectWise when the Cost was $0.00: "The recurring/recurringCost field is required.

[Service Release: 8.12]

 14. When selecting items from Etilize for use in Required Items, the item would not be found. [Service Release: 8.12]

 20. For ConnectWise users, addressed an issue when converting opportunities to Agreements where the Agreements in ConnectWise contained unexpected Null values. The Agreement window was not shown and the Agreement was not created in ConnectWise. [Service Release: 8.15]

 21. For QuickBooks Online users, when the option was set to use the "Document Date" as the transaction date in QuickBooks Online, there were times the date exported would be used incorrectly. [Service Release: 8.18]

 26. For QuickBooks Online users, when creating a Purchase Order in QuickBooks and the option to update item cost/price was enabled, an error would be returned and the Purchase Order would not be created in QuoteWerks or QuickBooks Online. [Service Release: 8.18]

 27. For ConnectWise users, When requesting inventory on hand for a ConnectWise Product an 'Index was outside the bounds of the array.' message was returned. This was due to changes in the way ConnectWise returns data in an update to their REST API. [Service Release: 8.18]

 28. Would receive error "subscript out of range" when using the File->Login as another user and then opening a quote. [Service Release: 8.19]

 30. For ConnectWise users, when attempting to retrieve an existing ConnectWise Activity to update that had a Reminder of "0 minutes", an error would be returned and the Activity would not be available to update in QuoteWerks. [Service Release: 8.19]

 31. For ConnectWise users, when updating an existing opportunity that had Custom Fields, the Custom Fields would revert to the default value (possibly empty or blank). This fix will work with ConnectWise version 2017.5 and higher. ConnectWise 2017.5 or higher is required because there was an issue with updating ConnectWise Opportunity Custom fields in earlier versions of the ConnectWise API. [Service Release: 8.19]

 32. For ConnectWise users, when the first or last name of the ConnectWise Member contained parentheses, QuoteWerks would not be able to determine the correct ConnectWise Member ID.

[Service Release: 8.19]

 33. For ConnectWise users, when adding a Shipping item to a ConnectWise Opportunity, would receive a Runtime error 9 - subscript out of range. [Service Release: 8.21]

 34. For ConnectWise Users, the ConnectWise REST API currently does not support setting Custom Fields on the ConnectWise Opportunity with a Custom Field Entry Method of List or Option. If QuoteWerks or any other API integrated solution attempts to update these, an error will be returned. Ticket #9431461 has been submitted to ConnectWise regarding the issue with their API. Rather than an error, the Custom fields are sent over without a value so they will revert to the default values when QuoteWerks updates an Opportunity. Custom Fields with an Entry Method of EntryField are written without issue. [Service Release: 8.25]

 35. When creating a new product and before saving the new product tried to add a QuoteValet video and error would occur. [Service Release: 8.25]
