December 2021

New features

  • Magic buttons – With one click, add a new task and start the timer. Magic buttons allow you to insert urgent work (phone call, email) conveniently. That ensures tasks are inserted into Uku properly. Read more.
  • Task notes – Add active links and new rows with the enter.
  • Client list export is now exporting the clients you have filtered out.
  • If you navigate away from the company template or client plan creation view, we give a warning. Just to be sure changes are not lost.

Other improvements & fixes

November 2021

New features

  • Invoice payment status from Merit Aktiva – Uku updates the payment status of invoices exported to Merit Aktiva. It gives you an overview of paid and unpaid invoices.

Other improvements & fixes

  • Client notes – there have been some problems with adding attachments and updating existing notes. We resolved these issues.
