By a factor of 100:1 the most requested feature our customers have been asking for is a web version, and we understand why!
When we started Powered Now our goal was to help mobile business owners get their evenings back, grow their companies and be better organised. Being on the mobile and tablet was a great (and technically difficult) starting point, after all how often are you behind a desk. However there is something to be said for a mouse and keyboard, especially when you're creating complex quotes, invoices and projects. So we are very excited to announce the public alpha of our web version!
Things to note
This is alpha software, therefore things will break, but thats why we need you! When you consider the number of different operating systems, browsers, internet connections etc there are a lot of variables. The more people we can get though the alpha the better.
The alpha doesn't point at our live servers, this is a test configuration, so you won't be able to log into your live accounts. Please create a new account, but please note this is not for commercial use. Your account will probably be nuked at some point, so consider anything you put into your account lost! In fact, let me just say that again...
THIS IS NOT FOR COMMERCIAL USE
Now thats out of the way, lets get started.
The alpha currently supports:
- Chrome browser running on Windows
- Chrome browser running on Mac
- Firefox browser running on Windows
- Firefox browser running on Mac
- Safari browser running on Mac
Sorry Internet Explorer / Edge / Opera fans, we are racing to add support all the time and hope to have at least another browser done for launch. The alpha should (although its not been tested) work on Chromebooks and Linux if your browser is in the list above, love to know if anyone tries it.
How to test
If you find a problem if you could submit your feedback along with any screen shots via a support ticket then it will go to the right place. If you could just let us know what browser / operating system you are using and when you found the problem.
What to test
We don't want to be too prescriptive, just use Powered Now as you want, go where you want to go, do what you want to do. However if you're new to all of this then maybe you could follow the Getting Started Guide, its a good run though most things.
Ok, have you read all the above? Are you nodding to yourself? Lets go:
PS: For every person that tests the Powered Now Alpha during this testing window we will be donating a small amount to the Isle of Wight Youth Trust, so your good deed to us is turning into a good deed for someone else.
