I have been working on GrandTotal 3 during the last nine Months.
Some days ago it has been deployed to my alpha testers.
As soon it prooves to be stable for regular use I will start a private beta.
If you are willing to participate, please fill out this http://mediaatelier.com/GrandTotal3
Update: Beta list is closed.
I’m currently working on GrandTotal 3. Since the scripting API has been rewritten, I would be happy to test your layout (if it contains any scripts with the new version).
1 ) Move to the Layouts Section
2 ) Select your Layout
3 ) Export it using File/Export
4 ) Zip the file
5 ) Send it to This mail
PS: There is no release date nor a final feature list
Some of you may already have noticed. PDF generation on the latest OS X Update (10.6.7) is broken for some non-standard fonts.
This bug does not only affect GrandTotal – it also applies in all other programs that are using the System libraries for creating PDFs.
I found a forum post describing how to downgrade to 10.6.6
If you don’t see any problems with 10.6.7: Don’t downgrade.
Apple just released a fix for this
Um einen solchen QR-Code in seinem GrandTotal Layout einzubauen braucht es nur ein paar Handgriffe und eine Internetverbindung während dem Senden der Rechnung.
- Im Layout ein TextFeld einfügen
- Dieses rechtsklicken und “Script…” wählen
- Untenstehendes Script einfügen
- Die ersten drei Variablen personalisieren
var name = "Max Mustermann";
var account = "12345";
var BNC = "1234567";
var reason = grandtotalrecord.nameOrDraft().replace(/\ /g,"+");
var URL = "bank://singlepayment?";
URL += "name=" + name.replace(/\ /g,"+");
URL += "&account=" + account;
URL += "&BNC=" + BNC;
URL += "&amount=" + grandtotalrecord.costWithTaxes().toFixed(2).replace(".",",");
URL += "¤cy=" + grandtotalrecord.currency().shortName();
URL += "&reason=" + reason;
var requestURL = "https://www.bezahlcode.de/generator/?generate=" + encodeURIComponent(URL);
result ="<img>" + requestURL + "</img>";
Die Breite des Textfeldes ist für die Grösse des QR-Codes auschlaggebend.
In some countries the taxes are changing this year. This short post will show how to add the new taxes in GrandTotal.
- Go to Preferences/Taxes and hit the “Edit…” button below the right table
- Add a new rule, call it something like “From 2012″ and close the sheet
- Then add the correct values for each of your clients groups
- Move to Preferences/Item Groups
- Assign the new tax to all corresponding item groups
If you have 2 or more tax rates, repeat the steps for all of them
Today Apple activated the new mobile me calendars for all users. If in any case you see data loss in TimeLog, this is the reason.
If you can’t see any data in TimeLog: Go to TimeLog preferences deselect all your calendars and select them again.
If you are a GrandTotal user and experience a wrong “Not Invoiced” listing – this is also related to the Apple update. Select the already invoiced items in that list and rightclick the selection. Choose there to hide them.
I most countries the law does not allow to change an invoice after has been sent. This is why only payments that have been added *before* sending an invoice are deducted from the total amount
If you like to send a Receipt after each payment: Go to the “+ Documents” section of the invoice. The Default type is a Reminder but you can can setup a Receipt in the settings icon on the bottom. Once setup, you can add payments and then send your client a Receipt.
