      Hey everyone – we have added the “Sync to QuickBooks Online” bit for beta_testers, if you are not a beta tester currently, you will get this feature in a couple weeks. We are not accepting new beta testers at this time.

      For those of you that are beta testers, please visit QuickBooks settings in RepairShopr and select your Accounts Payable account for PO’s to sync to in QB and let us know here in the comments what feedback you have for it!

      Thanks!

      Hey guys, just FYI it looks like Google has released the API docs on this, or am I misreading this? (Not a developer)

              Couldn’t you add questions like:

              Question 1 (sensor 1):
              Question 1 (sensor 2):

              etc?

              Changing this for everyone doesn’t sound like an obvious correct thing to do.

              Hey Troy,

              That would effectively give me a worksheet which is possibly 32 questions long, and which may change if we are only using 3 sensors instead of 4, or there's one different. Basically the questions don't change, but the answers may and the sensors may as well.

              For instance, here's what I need to look at (we're looking at gas sensing technology):
              Gas Name
              High Alarm
              Low Alarm
              STEL Alarm
              TWA Alarm
              Calibration Gas Expected
              Actual Value Detected
              Calibration Pass/Fail

              So what I need to do is have a sheet for each one of these sensors. That means when it displays on a page in the template (we have to give this sheet to customers at the end) I have 4 huge worksheets that take up the entire page. It leaves me with about 3 worksheets per page. That means I have to hand 4-5 pages to my customers for every job they bring me, with lots of white space and not much information per page.

              If I were able to create a tabled worksheet, this would directly solve my problems. The worksheet could be full width on the page, with as many columns (for sensors) as I would need. Sometimes gas detectors have 6 sensors. It could apply to any repair company which is running the same type of analysis on a piece of equipment that needs that same analysis multiple times.

              Honestly, my most major gripe is how these show up to the customer. If we need multiple worksheets to get this done, one for each Sensor, so be it, but I need some way of formatting that into a 1-2 page report for the customer. Maybe some way of altering the way worksheets show on the page? The template editor has a "worksheet_tables_compressed" field, but after checking both the compressed and standard, there is no difference. It gets worse when the ticket prints and the page break occurs randomly in the middle of one of my worksheets.

              Thanks for taking a look at this personally!

              James

                I would take this, or at least don't move all additional worksheets down on the page. These could be ordered way better or placed on the page more optimally.
