Templates 2.0 Beta
We just rolled out a major new upgrade to how Templates work in Keeper.
  1. You can now choose which sections show up in a template (so you can have a “payroll” template that only includes the payroll section).
  2. Project and Close templates have now been unified into Task Templates, so all templates live in one place.
  3. You can now apply templates by property (so you can apply your e-commerce templates to just your e-commerce clients).
  4. You can now add multiple templates at one time when adding new clients. You can also preview what your close page will look like before adding them.
  5. You can add preparer/reviewer/manager roles when adding a client.
  6. We added a “copy last used settings” option for quickly adding multiple clients with the same settings.
  7. We fixed the periodic saving errors you may have experienced while creating or editing templates.
Templates 2.0 is now in beta - you can join the beta here.

Timestamped account balances
You can now add a timestamped balance column to display the balance of the account timestamped to when you completed the task.
This can help you identify accounts whose balances have changed since you reconciled them.
If the timestamped balance does not match the live book balance, that means something has changed in the account since you reconciled it, so you can click into the task to see the register and investigate.
