                          Hi bubenberg,

                          Thanks for the excitement. We are very excited too.

                          We just need to finish a few more things up and we will post a test version on the forum here. I wanted to show to you the functionality of it as soon as I could.

                              Why would I have to mark completed even after I input my star and finish times? (double entry) I can see the need for that box, but maybe become self mark after I choose the start and finish time.
                              Is there any place to input how many workers were at the property or even better whom, which equipment was used materials, etc.
                              Specially materials cause when you apply fertilizer sometimes you really don't know if you'll have to apply other chemicals.
                              What about any extra services like pulling weeds while there?.
                              It's my customer database going to be on the palm? like balance, last service date, last payment received, last invoice send. Adress, phone#, etc. with some level of security (you don't want your foreman to know how much she owes you or pays).
                              Am I going to be able to create an invoice at site, lets say for example if I did schedule a job but I'll be charging by the time it takes, then send the information via IR to a portable printer and voila I'd save an postage stamps and envelope + get paid faster.
                              What about the ability to get paid by credit card?
                              Is the matrix also goint to be integrated in the program?
                              What about the start and finish time for the day to keep track of employees and also get a report of winshield time.
                              Yeah ! lets say pedro, john and Ira are my crew but pedro didn't show up for work, so John my former inputs that into the palm at the very star of the day, then they change blades, fill up at the gas station and get a cup of cofee, so they star working at Mrs. Jones at 8:30 am finish at 9:43am then drive for 5 minutes and start the second account, etc, etc, finish the last property at 5:00 pm so they go to the shop and leave at 5:25 and enter the finish time, (palm has to stay at the shop every day)
                              So now you know what time they started, and finish, how long each property takes, and how much winshield time is involved.
                              Then gopher would accumulate all this information and eventually make the propgram smarter to know the average time a property has to take which would be usually the first cut, and sends alerts to you and to the palm when a property is taking longer than what it should take, something like this "Your best time for this property is 35min with pedro, Ira and John" that way you can correct problem before they get bigger.
                              If a good former know this they will also try to take less time drinking coffee, making stops and all that or at least they aware that you know this.

                              What about the option to record weather conditions, this will be required in all states sometime in the near future by DEC.

                              What about alerts if for some reason I forget to perform a job.
                              (maybe after clicking the finish time for the day).

                              input new customers information, like increase price, due to extending turf area, a discount, etc but have that information password protected.

                              and I have another 100 suggestions.

                              So please don't tell me that all your program does it's what it's shown in the training movie.
