Here you see an example of a record label. The project where we zoom into is a random cd produced by the company. They publish the cd and distribute it worldwide. You see they have different prices for different regions or distribution ways.
Invoices Out tab
Now, if we create an invoice we can not only select the project but also select which price you want to use.
There is also an option to create a freeform line to the invoice this means you only select a project, not a projects’ price.
Of course at the “Reports” tab you find details on the totals of the sales and it’s categories. Of course you can personalize the different price categories yourself. You can do this at the settings tab. If you’re making websites you can make eg “development”, “design”, “research”, or if you organise events you can make it “presales” and “at the door”. If you have any trouble at this feel free to ask us advice.
Eg If you run a small kite shop this can be a possible option:
You have project and project groups. Start by creating the project groups. After that you can start making projects attached to a project group. Also we advice you to create a general project group, with this example you’ll have something like:
It might look a bit cumbersome to enter all your payments, but it’s the only way to keep track of your accountancy.

Cvs export option for contacts, invoices out, invoices in, payments

Possibility to link multiple invoices to a payment
Internal transfer option in payments section]]>
Well, there is a big difference on the base. For Cobalt a project is on it’s own. You link an invoice with a project and that’s it. At Freshbooks they have a different approach. For them you work on projects for a client. So if you have an expense (in cobalt that’s ‘invoice in’) then you have the option to assign it to a client, and additionally choose one of the projects you work on for them. That means if you have a project or a product you’re working on that’s not assigned to a specific client you’re in trouble. Freshbooks has more a time tracking approach: you work for a client and sporadically you have expenses for that client.
Droplr is all about small file sharing on max os x: send images or small notes to friends, embed urls in twitter etc… Here a little video introdution:
Application in private beta from the excellent spanish icon and user interface designer Jonatan Castro. His studio, Midtone Design, released a first version in september. Cloud app is a bit a generic name for what it does now: uploading images. Drag an image to the application and it uploads the image to a server.
It’s really good but needs some improvement, and maybe more features to make it true. getcloudapp.com
Open source application made by one of the swedish designers at Spotify, Rasmus Andersson.
Scrup is for screenshots only. When you take one, it saves and uploads the file (to a server of your choice) and returns an url. That’s all, but really handy. Snow Leopard only.
Top notch! Dropbox works like an additional hard drive on your computer. You put stuff in there and it synchs with your webspace at Dropbox, and that all in a really simple and intuitive way. You can open up folders for friends and even publish a public link. You get 2Gig for free so you’re able to work with big files from the start.
Additional you can also use for version back up. You change a file and later regret the changes you made, don’t worry— you can go back to Dropbox’s web site and retrieve an older version.
Personal favourite. Evernote is designed for universal 24-7 access. You can use it on your desktop, online, or via your phone to keep your files and notes synced and up to date in all locations. You can also push screenshots and web pages straight to your Evernote account. Evernote works like a quick searchable and taggable notebook, and with built-in ocr you can also scan images. Evernote isn’t mac os x only, you’ll also find it for Windows, iPhone and even Android.
