A new version of the DataDear Excel add-in and Dashboard will be released on Wednesday 13th February.

The new release includes:

  • Introducing a MTD template for QuickBooks - if you are interested to test this, get in touch with the support team.
  • Improved security when authenticating with QuickBooks - connected companies will need to reconnect to DataDear.
  • Several improvements to the Dashboard - including ability to enter Client Code and Office Location (ideal for large firms).
  • Ability to select multiple organisations when allocating rights to invited users.
  • Ability to download the list of connected organisations from the Dashboard or directly from Excel.
