Updates for Gas Engineer Software – February 2021

by | Feb 4, 2021 | Gas Engineer Software

January was a busy month for us and we’ve made some great improvements not only to the apps themselves, but also to our underlying systems.

First up, we’ve introduced a new Jobs tab within the iOS app, which lets you manage and organise any jobs added to the software right from your mobile device – this lets you do even more while you’re away from the office, without needing access to a desktop.

We’ve streamlined the workflow involved in creating new records; where we used to show you a pop-up asking if you want to attach the record to a new or existing job, we now take you straight to a list of your existing jobs instead to save you time. Don’t worry though, the option to create a new job is still right at the top of the list if you need it.

We also spent some time this month doing maintenance on our disaster recovery and backup systems, so we are able to respond more quickly in the rare event that we experience an outage.

Finally, we’ve created a new Facebook group for Gas Engineer Software users! This group will be used to share updates and collect your valuable feedback, as well as swapping helpful tips and tricks for using the software. If you’d like to be among the first people to join, visit the link down below or search “Official Gas Engineer Software Users Group” on Facebook.

Below we’ve included a full list of the 2 releases and 19 changes we’ve made to the software this month.

All of these updates and improvements are from your feedback and suggestions.

Thank you for your ongoing support, we always appreciate it.

Kind Regards

Tulloch Priest
And all the team at
Gas Engineer Software.
