July 2023 Release: Studio Designer

This version includes updates to Client Portal settings and a number of improvements to the Payment Posting page.


Client Portal Enhancements

Additional Client Portal access settings have been added to provide more control over the pages your Clients can access through Client Portal. This allows you to configure the view on a client-by-client basis.

If StudioPay Clients want to securely store their payment information for future use, but don't want to see project financials or other details, invite the Client to the Client Portal and disable their view for all Pages in their Client Portal Settings. They will only be able to view their stored payment information, but will still have direct link access to any Proposals and Invoices sent to their email address.

Payment Posting Enhancements

StudioPay users now have expanded search capability and additional control within the Payment Posting page:

  • Transactions now display Client names
  • Transactions specify if payment was made through ACH or credit card
  • Individual transactions can be manually removed from the Payment Posting sidebar view
