This page represents the features and updates made to iPoint since our last release. While this list isn’t comprehensive, it does list the majority of the changes and upgrades we’ve made to iPoint.
These features are all current as of Version 10.0405.
Many of the features have been written about in our manual. The “Read More” link takes you to the manual page for all the documented details while the “Watch Video” link opens iPoint University where you can see the training video. Note: You must be logged in to iPoint for the University videos to work.
Your customers can now store and manage their credit card information securely so that their online payments can be made quickly. This is perfect for customers that have recurring invoices for security monitoring or service contracts that get paid every month. Note: You must use TransNational as your credit card processor for Recurring Payments to function.
The new iPointTech App is here. Now your technicians can work on iPoint without a live internet connection. This standalone app allows your team to download their job details in the morning and then work offline. Once they have an internet connection, their work will be synced back to the server.
There are two significant enhancements to the calendar in this release. First, the calendar is speedy… dare we say snappier! Interacting with events and work orders takes much less time. And we’ve also added an unlimited horizon view timeline. Previously, you were limited to 20 events.
Changes to Mobile iOS

By default, the original proposal is considered to be Revision 0. We’ve added an option that makes the original proposal to be considered Revision 1 instead.
