Akaunting 1.2 ReleasedReading Time: 3 minutes
Today, we are pleased to announce the release of Akaunting 1.2 [Recurring] stable version.
As always, Akaunting’s new version comes with great new features, improvements, and of course, bug fixes :D.
Because Akaunting is a community-driven project, we created a poll to see what our community wants to see in the 1.2 version.
Our community was able to vote for a whole month, then we started the development.
Akaunting 1.2 – Recurring
This release is named “Recurring” based on one of the most important features added; the ability to create recurring invoices, revenues, bills, and payments.
We would like to thank everyone who contributed to Akaunting 1.2 with bug reports, tests, suggestions, and development.
Now, let’s see what we have new in Akaunting 1.2 release:
Some jobs are one-off, but others are ongoing, whether daily, weekly, monthly, or other.
The recurring feature automatically creates invoices, revenues, bills, and payments for ongoing jobs and sends the current invoice to the client on a regular, pre-defined basis.
You can also create custom recurring records, such as sending an invoice every 3 months.
P&L, Tax, and Print Reports
It’s important to take a step back from time to time and look at the bigger picture of how your business is doing.
The Profit & Loss report is the most used one for such a purpose as it gives a snapshot of your business.
This release also comes with a Tax Report showing you the total and net tax you will pay.
Finally, this release brings the print feature to all report pages.
Now you can see the customer/vendor profile, address, list of transactions, and paid, open, and overdue totals at a glance.
From our ideas section in forums, assigning an invoice/bill to a category was one of the most requested features, so we added it to the 1.2 version.
You can also create a new category on the go from the invoice/bill page.
On Akaunting 1.2 version, you can apply a percentage discount on your invoices and bills.
Invoice/Bill Decimal Quantity
Another feature frequently asked on our forums was the possibility of adding a decimal quantity to invoices/bills.
This is generally helpful for service/hour-based invoices/bills, items sold in kg, etc.
5 New Languages
Thanks to our community and especially translators at Crowdin, the 1.2 release comes with 5 new languages, and almost all languages are updated.
Bulgarian, Danish, Greek, Hebrew, and Ukrainian are the new languages added, making Akaunting a worldwide accounting software translated into 25 languages.
We’ve also fixed some bugs in this release, such as the date picker not multi-lingual, app store search, showing transfers in payments and revenues pages, and much more.
You can find the full changelog on our GitHub page.
