Welcome to the August edition of AroFlo’s Newsletter: a monthly roundup of our recent product enhancements and updates.
This month we introduced the ability to generate quotes for assets from a task asset checklist – a convenient way to create a quote for assets that have been marked as failed during an inspection. We improved the functionality of progress claiming for projects, and added a new form to our growing list of pre-built compliance forms.
Read on to learn about our recent highlights.

Urgent Action Required: Transfer to Permission Groups
The process to phase out AroFlo’s legacy user access settings is underway and we’re approaching the September 13, 2021 deadline.
Our records show that some users are still using legacy access types and will need to be transferred to Permission Groups as a matter of priority.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Those businesses who have not transferred users across to Permission Groups by this date, will be migrated to our Pre-built Permission Groups as follows:

Projects: Changes to Progress Invoicing
We’ve made some improvements to progress claiming for projects, and you’ll be pleased to know, you can now link quoted items to a progress claim.
This update also allows for more flexibility with invoice line items as you’ll have the option to:
- Adjust the quantities, percentages, or amounts for linked items
- Add items from linked quotes or tasks
- Use the values of the linked items as a basis for the overall invoice line item (% of Contract only)
- Create your own groupings of task/quote items.

Task Assets: Generate Quotes from Asset Checklist
We’re excited to bring you the ability to generate quotes for assets from a task asset checklist – a convenient way to create a quote for assets that have been marked as failed during inspection.
While using AroFlo Office or Field you can simply generate a quote using the Generate Quote(s) function, to create a quote for assets that have failed.
In addition, we’ve added the ability to link inventory items to assets. When you generate a quote using the task assets interface, you’ll find that any inventory items linked to the asset you’re quoting on will auto-populate as line items on that quote.

Risk Assessment Linked Forms
Our recent installment to our Compliance renovations is the Create a Linked Form page.
Adding a linked form is useful if there are risks or compliance items that are not covered by the risk assessment form.
AroFlo Office :
Pre-built Forms Added
We recently added the highly sought after Electrical Safety Check Report to our volt of pre-built compliance forms.
Our pre-built forms are a great alternative to creating your own custom forms and new versions are added regularly.
