May 2021 Product Update

Introduction

Welcome to the May 2021 Product update. For those of you that don’t know me, I’m Mike Rogers and I run the Product Development team here at HomeGauge.

In order to make our updates easier to digest, we’re now providing you with short videos highlighting the latest updates straight from our product and engineering teams!

Let’s get straight into it with the highlights.

HomeGauge ONE

HomeGauge One is the name we’re giving to all our products and services. There are lots of exciting new products and services on the horizon as part of this effort. Stay tuned for more!

Scheduler

New configuration available. We’ve added the ability to hide pricing when scheduling. This was a customer requested feature which we’re glad we were able to incorporate. Coming next, we’ll be updating the way requested appointments appear in the inspector dashboard and we’ll be making it easier to create a report directly from an appointment in the Web Writer.

Web Writer

It’s official the Web Writer is a very fast and efficient solution for creating reports.  In benchmarks we have seen the Web Writer create reports with approximately 40% less clicks and in 50% less time.  As a subscriber you get access already as part of your subscription.  We’re working hard on a next generation Mobile app and will have that available this summer. 

We also now have the Comment and disclaimer Library available for all users. You can centrally manage all of your comments and disclaimers in one place.

Desktop Writer Companion App

Camera improvements have been made in Beta! As announced at HG Together we now have a private beta for the Companion app that incorporates the camera app. We’ll post instructions on how to enroll on the community forum and will be contacting all of our beta testers shortly.

That’s it for this installment. As always, keep an eye on our Resource Center, Learning Center, and Community Forum for the latest from our teams!
