As always, we would love to hear your thoughts on the new releases, ideas on how we can improve or if you just want to email us with some feedback on how you finding Senta so far. Feel free to get in touch with us by emailing  [email protected]

Production board + production dates

We are very happy to introduce the new production board feature to all our clients for beta testing. You can now switch between the job list and production board list easily to see your work spread out week-by-week or month-by-month, and manage your workload by clicking and dragging jobs between columns. New production dates allow you to choose exactly when you need to work on different jobs.

For more information see our guide here.

If you would like us to turn this test feature on for you, contact [email protected].

Xero practice-level integration

The new practice-level Xero integration is now available for beta testing. Some of the features available include client data imports, linking existing Senta clients to Xero clients, and the one you’ve all been waiting for... syncing of client data to and from Xero!

Express yourself! Emoji and reactions are now available for beta testing. You can add emoji to notes, footers, and emails.

You can also add reactions to jobs, notes, tasks and clients.

Choose how far ahead jobs are created

You now have the power to decide how far ahead jobs are created in Senta. Whether you want weekly jobs to show up in Senta a month in advance, or annual jobs to just show up one year in advance, you can now use date offsets to choose when jobs are created. Take a look at our guide to find out how to set this up.

Copy and paste images into Senta

You can now copy and paste screenshots and images into notes and emails within Senta, making it easy to store snippets of information for your clients.

Task list due date filter

The task list can now be filtered by due date, as well as start date, so you can ensure you only see the tasks you need to work on right now.
