New in Version 6.0.1 (May 2020)
  • Fix: Upgraded the licensing process for those buying Digital Cash Book via the Dutch website.
New in Version 6.0.0 (Feb 2020)
  • Feature: The Cashflow Forecast tool has been added. Graph and spreadsheet. Displays a graph of user’s daily cashflow position throughout the month in question. Predicts the day in the month of lowest/highest bank balance. Spreadsheet shows daily opening and closing balances. Resizer allows user to increase/decrease the size of the graph and spreadsheet.
  • Dev: Opening balances: If no earlier opening bank balance exists e.g. when opening a new administration, Digital Cash Book will now set the date of your opening balance to the last day of the year preceding the current calendar year (i.e. 31 December).
  • Dev: A license validity has been added in the launch screen and in Help > About, so users can see the date on which their current license expires.
  • Dev: The currency code used in for the Cashflow Forecast’s Y axis only displayed EUR and could not be changed. This has been fixed. Now, the currency code you select for your first booking in a new administration will determine the currency code displayed in the graph.
  • Fix: Old administration years were still showing in the top left of the Budget Planner, even though they were disabled. These have now been removed. Only the current year will be displayed.
  • Fix: If you have not yet selected a bank to work together with the Bank Reconciliation Account, Cashflow Forecast will not work properly. An ‘alert’ text has therefore been added advising the user: “You need to select a bank for the Bank Reconciliation Account” (in: Maintenance Menus >Bank Accounts tab).
  • Fix: Changes made to the amount of a scheduled payment when editing a batch (of payments) in the Direct Debit/SO Log, were not been reflected in the Budget Planner. This has now been fixed.
  • Fix: The process of restoring scheduled payments to the Journal required tweaking. On restoring, the payment status was correctly changed to ‘Unpaid’ in the Direct Debit/SO Log, but when you marked off the scheduled payment again as ‘paid’ before closing the booking, the payment status in the Log failed to change to ‘Paid’. This has been fixed.
  • Fix: When changing the name of an administration or other settings in the Settings menu, the application was not remembering the change. This has been fixed.
  • Tweak: The text in Booking > Import Bank Transactions > Other banks has been updated. You now have to purchase a Bank Support Pack if your particular bank is not supported. Contact the Help Desk before purchasing the Bank Support Pack.
  • Tweak: The Edit Sub-expense menu [Bewerk subrubriek menu] in the Dutch interface needed widening to reveal all the text next to tick box. A further tweak was made to the resizer so that it now remembers the last resizer setting.
  • Tweak: A ‘test bank’ has been selected to work with the Bank Reconciliation Account In the three sample administrations. This will ensure that the Scheduled Payments report is already fully functional and consultable when running the demo version of Digital Cash Book.
  • Bug: Another bug in the Journal’s marking-off dialog was fixed.
  • Bug: A bug that arose when switching between administrations has been fixed.
New in Version 5.0.3 (Jul 2018)
  • Dev: A new function button was added in the Budget Planner to enable users to ‘Zero variable budgets'.
  • Dev: A shortcut button was added in the Scheduled Payments (SP) report, to enable the user to consult the Budget v. Actual tool without leaving the SP report.
  • Tweak: Text change in Booking menu: the words ‘ Telebanking website’ was changed to ‘Online Banking’.
  • Tweak: The links in the Help Menu: ‘Check for updates’ and ‘Website’ have been removed.
