  • One of the few apps that I’ve used for the life of my business

    By TJ_Journeyman_Electrician
    Excellent app, though I’ve never had anyone use the financing options, it’s still something that customers like to have the option of. The best part of the app is it’s organizational properties and it’s ability to pull previously used items and pricing. Adding taxes is easily done, with the ability to have multiple or different taxes for different counties or states. Adding a markup that isn’t shown but is instead applied to each line item equally is also a great and convenient option. Estimates are a breeze to make and just as easy to convert over to an invoice. Keep track of payments per each invoice is also done for you, you just have to input what is paid and for what invoice. It’ll even remind you if an invoice hasn’t been paid in full and a brief period of time has passed. And this is all just the free version. The paid has even more helpful options. Very pleased with it and I can for see using it for all my future needs.

    The only issue I have is when you record a additional work added to orgobal amount, it reverts back to contract not being signed, when it has already been signed prior. I really feel this should be something to consider to keep the invoice signed as is with new work that was done.
  • Will not save write ups!

    By jeff3800
    When updating invoice to include work done etc. you must save constantly! If you don’t in a few minutes when you’re phone closes, all notes disappear! You must scroll down and hit the 2nd “Done” not the done at the top. If you only hit “Done” at the top of the screen “any and all updates to invoice or estimate are lost”!!!! Poor design & Time waster app! Second Input Whenever the phone changes orientation, the app closes & and loses current input….a lot of time is lost if you don’t update constantly!

  • No support for deducts/negative numbers

    By psbuckley
    Joist has upped the ante when they added Pro and Pro Elite, but didn’t bring negative numbers with them. As explained in detail to Joist many times, they aren’t just a quote app, not just an invoicing app, with the change order feature they are a project management app. So negative numbers are a MUST HAVE throughout the system. Right now? Not worth the price of admission! BUT!!! There is hope! I spoke to their consultant in JULY and they SEEM to be listening. Negative numbers might just be on the way! Stay tuned! Oct ‘21 update- still no negative numbers. Funny thing, I just went to an existing invoice to add a change order and the example JOIST shows on the OPENING PAGE shows a negative line-item, but this capability STILL DOESN’T EXIST. Nov ‘21 update- still no negative numbers. Dev response assured me that it’s coming. So I’ll just continue to pay a preminun price for a flawed product because… why??? Oh! And please stop calling this a “feature”. Do you think an accounting or tax software would launch a product that didn’t allow for negatives and then put out an update explaining that they never considered that anyone would ever get money BACK from the gov’t and that having a way to do that might be helpful??? (Hits head against brick wall).
