Upgrade Process

View Standard Upgrade Steps

This update requires no additional steps.

Applying the incremental patch version to an existing 6.0.0 installation will perform an automated version bump and require no upgrade process to be performed.

Release Notes

  • A new setting named Store Client Data Snapshot has been added in Setup > General Settings > Invoices. Enabling this will store a copy of the clients name, address and custom field data each time an invoice is generated so that any future changes to the clients profile information do not result in any changes to existing invoices. This applies to any invoices generated from the time the setting is enabled. It will not apply to invoices generated prior to enabling the setting however.
  • This new built-in setting replaces the Fixed Invoice Data addon. If you have this addon installed at the time of upgrade to 6.0.1, the upgrade process will automatically enable the new setting and de-activate the module.
