Version 7.0.9 Released
We’ve just released PRS Client version 7.0.9. This release consolidates the 7.0.8a, 7.0.8b and 7.0.8c updates and adds a number of new additions and changes (plus bug fixes).
You now have the ability to customise the PRS startup splash image. First find a suitable Windows Bitmap (.bmp) image file, then:
To revert to the default splash image hold down the Ctrl key while you press the Set Splash Image button.
You can use the custom splash image feature to apply your own corporate branding to the PRS. To install a custom splash image when you install the PRS Client Setup Wizard just name your bitmap splash image file prs_splash.bmp and put it in the same folder as the PRS Client Setup Wizard (prs2k_client_setup_708.exe); when the PRS Client is installed the splash file will also be installed automatically.
See the 7.0.9 Changelog at the end of this newsletter for a full list of the changes since the previous release.
To download and upgrade to PRS 7.0.9 go to the Installing the Latest PRS Client section on our Updates web page and follow the instructions.
Tips and Tricks
Printing Activity Summaries
To print the Vacancy and Personnel form Activity summaries: press Ctrl+P while the Activity summary dialog is open.
Unpaid Invoice report
To produce a report of all currently unpaid invoices:
If you wish to run a report to see which invoices were unpaid as of a certain date then enter the To and From dates, for example, a date range of 1 Apr 07 to 31 Mar 08 will produce a report of invoices not paid as of 31 March 08 (invoices paid after the 31 March will still appear in this report).
You can check your license status from PRS by selecting About PRS from the PRS Help menu.
Word 2007 Documents
Microsoft Word 2007 is using a new document format. If you send a Word file using the new format to someone still using an older Word version, he or she will not be able to open it. So it might be a good idea to change the default setting of Word 2007 to the Word 97/2003 document format.
Keyboard shortcuts are a boon for power users. Here’s the list of shortcuts taken from the online PRS Help:
