You can now easily re-order and insert new line items in your invoices and quotes. The key benefits of these new Invoiceplace features are :
- You can adjust your invoice or quote to have similar line items listed together.
- If you issue a similar invoice each month by making a copy of last month’s invoice it is easy to adjust the order and add invoice line items as required.
- If you need to make a change to an invoice and insert a new item amongst existing items you can easily do so.
The following is an example of how these new features can help you. An invoice is issued for consulting services performed by Jill for project X and Y. Jill was also able to sell software licenses for a utility that was required for project X. The line item for project Y was added after the software licences were recorded on the invoice.
For Jill to move the line item for project Y to be listed below project X she needs to click on the red arrow pointing upwards, as circled below:
Now the consulting lines items for project X and Y are listed together on Jill’s invoice.
Following on from this example and Jill was also able to do work for project Z, which she can be bill for on the same invoice. She would like to enter the hours for this project after the hours for project Y.
To insert a line item amongst existing line items Jill clicks on the icon shaped like a plus sign (circled below). This will insert a new line item below project Y -
Jill can now record the billable hours for project Z.

A update has been made to improve the way postage (shipping) is printed on invoices and quotes. Now when your invoice or quote does not have a postage amount the postage details are no longer printed on the invoice. The following screen shots show the difference between printing an invoice with and without postage.
This invoice does have postage (this screen shot is from the review screen) :
When the invoice is printed the postage amount and tax amounts are displayed :
When there is no postage these two amounts are no longer displayed:

An official blog exclusively for Google Australia has just been launched -
We were thinking the other day — how is it that Australians can break the 132-year America’s Cup drought, host the world’s best Olympics, win Nobel Prizes and Oscars — and yet not have an official Google Australia Blog?
Too right. So without further ado, consider this oversight fixed.
Welcome to the official Google Australia blog!

A special thank you to Zena Hockley for her mention of Invoiceplace on the REAL Women blog in the post Invoicing made easier. Excerpt below -
Book keeping is a mundane task but essential to running a business efficiently. Without it no accounting information can be compiled for the tax authorities and of course, you canâ€™t get paid by your clients!
In the start-up years, administering invoices and collecting payments might seem like a doddle but as the business grows, keeping on top of your sales and purchases can become time consuming taking you away from your focus â€“ making money!
