Now you can spread the cost of your yearly spend over a period of 12 months, rather than accounting 100% of it in the month you paid for it.
Simply head to Amortization Settings in your account to set up how long we should spread your payments (based on the billing cycle), then choose what view you'd like to see with the filter on all spend graphs.
Slack notifications for new employees
Now you'll receive a notification from the LicenceOne Slackbot each time a new employee is detected. What's more, directly from Slack, you'll be able to:

Ever had a situation where untracking an application in LicenceOne just didn't hit the spot?
Then say goodbye to all that frustration - LicenceOne now allows you to permanently delete applications from all of your views.
What's more, we've also added the possibility for you to let us know why you're deleting an application so that we can constantly improve our detection accuracy!
With today's update, LicenceOne users can visualise automatically detected transactions and their associated spend calculations in multiple currencies.
For users that sometimes pay in dollars, then pounds, then euros: this one's for you.
Now your LicenceOne dashboard displays multiple currency lines with the correct calculations if we detect that your bank account or accounting software handles multi-currency transactions.
Now, transactions that are shown in an application's spend tab show the currency that were each paid in; rather than assuming that they're all the same currency 😉
You might've also noticed that we've added handy links to LicenceOne's help center and feedback board so that all of our users can find this at a glance.
If you like adding applications and spend manually, don't worry! We've got a feature coming soon to allow you to select from any legal currency (at least that we could find 😉) coming very soon.
You can take a peak at that feature here, with some top secret screenshots of what the feature will look like too 🕵️
With today's update, LicenceOne users can add banking data from institutions in 27 new countries, with improved coverage for our existing Germany and Spain coverage too - adding over 2 100 new banks to choose from! 🤯
That means that on top of our existing banking integrations; users can now synchronise payment data from banks in the following countries:
Today we've launched a feature that allows all users to replace the LicenceOne logo on the top left of their menu to their own.
To do add your logo to your account, you will need your company logo to be:
Once that's all in place, head to Settings > Company information to get started.
For extra help getting setup with your customised interface, please consult our detailed FAQ article on "How do I add my company logo to LicenceOne?
A huge thanks goes out to everyone that's been waiting on this feature. We've had a huge shift in product philosophy over the past month; where previously we considered manual data entry to be the enemy we now consider it our friend 🤗
Users can now add spend data in one of two ways.
When manually adding applications to LicenceOne, we now have the following extra fields:
Cost per billing cycle
If your application has already been created in LicenceOne, head to the application page and click on the three dots indicating "More" on the top right of your interface:
From there, you should see a new popup that will allow you to change the application's spend; notably:
We've received feedback from multiple users mentioning that while they like that LicenceOne has a billing cycle field, this doesn't perfectly describe all the nuances between subscription-based applications, pay-as-you-go applications, or otherwise.
So we listened.
Now, on top of a billing cycle, users can assign the following financial models to their applications:
What's more, we've now removed lifetime deal from the billing cycle options. If users select lifetime deal as a financial model, the billing cycle will be set as one-time.
You can check out our feedback item for this below:
When signing up, some users skipped through our onboarding and unfortunately left the country field as the default value.
Normally that shouldn't be an issue, however, this is one of the ways that LicenceOne determines which currency symbol to display on financial amounts.
Now we've added a field under your company settings so that you can change your company country whenever you like 😀
Phew - launching on Appsumo keeps you busy! 😅 But in-between support, product design, and technical specifications we've still been able to publish a first batch of your desired changes.
Simply head to the "Add an application" button at the top right of your applications page to get started
This is the first stage in a three-stage process for improving manually adding applications to LicenceOne. Very soon we'll be adding a couple of extra fields to the manual creation view and then will start implementing our most requested feature: manually adding application spend and costs.
Now we've changed things so that your browser language and region automatically determines what number format appears. For example, if you've setup your browser to American English, numbers will now look like $122.33
For those that want to track budget allocation per team - don't fret!
We're first going to work on allowing users to assign multiple teams to an application and calculate how that budget is divided (equally or by headcount for example) and once that's perfected; we'll move on to making a useful dashboard graphic to display that information.
To follow our progress on that, you can upvote or subscribe to our feedback entry below:

Our French community will now have the choice to use the langue de molière inside LicenceOne. You will find a new preferences in the user settings allowing you to choose your prefered language for your user account.
Whereas before users could only filter between

Creation date and
Assigned to team filters, which can also be used with each other.
We've now reworked LicenceOne's search system so that you can search for applications and employees from anywhere in the application.

When offboarding employees with LicenceOne's
processes, it can be important for compliance reasons to know who performed an action (e.g. said that they removed an employees access) and when they performed that action.
That's why now in LicenceOne, all of the following actions related to tasks will generate an unchangable log with a timestamp:
To make process tasks simpler and easier to navigate; we've completely revamped the entire UI we first deployed for our task system.
First to be impacted is the
Now users can:
Completewith new primary filters
We expect to rollout this same interface to the
Tasks section of LicenceOne's interface in very soon.
Through speaking with users, we discovered that while you can add renewal dates one-by-one from their application page - it's a bit tedious.
To make this easier, we now display a callout have have built a custom tutorial that appears once we have detected a paid application without a renewal date filled in.
While it's important to monitor your software consumption, it's perhaps even more important to be proactive. That's why today we bring you
When one of your employees leaves the company, you can start an offboarding process from the employee view.
This ensures that an employee is removed from 100% of their accesses, logins, and accounts by:
Last words, we technically designed this set of features with the idea of being flexible and extendable easily. Which means you will soon see some others kind of processes, or some others automatic tasks plugged on our processes system.

In today's update, all users will now see a new
Renewals section on their interface. Contained within is a listing of all upcoming renewal dates for the software subscriptions within the company.
Contrary to the renewals module of your dashboard, this section provides a global overview of every renewal date for software in your company, regardless of how distant it is in the future.
To change any of the information related to the application, simply click on the renewal row and a
Edit application menu should open on the right of your screen.
We listened to your feedback and added a new setting to customise your invoice collect frequency:
Where before, tasks were always assigned to the manager of an application, it meant that users had no way to override the setting in specific situations (e.g. when a software manager was on holiday).
We've now modified this logic:

In today's update, we've launched a way to you consistently monitor bank accounts for software spend with ease.
Now LicenceOne will send users an email alert when:
The most common reasons for this are:

Users can now edit task related information by clicking the task name or on the
Edit button, such as:
Mark as completewithout passing via the web extension.
Now users are able to click and change the team or manager assigned to an application without visiting the detailed app view.
Simply click on the relevant cell and search for the team or manager you wish to assign the application to.
We had some users report that they were not aware that their financial data sources were no longer monitored, despite using the application regularly.
To help out, we now display a small red dot on the
Data sources menu icon and the concerned data source that is no longer synchronised.
We have also re-worked our UI so that items that need user attention are much more eye-grabbing and instructive.
We've added a
Current task element to the bottom right of users' screens to give more context of what task they should be accomplishing
We've added a tooltip to the

If you follow our updates rigorously, you might have noticed a trend.
Indeed, at LicenceOne we prefer launching a few well-developed features rather than hundreds of half-baked ones.
Well…this update is no different 😉
Sometimes when you're working in a large company, scrolling through a massive list of employees to find the one software manager that you want to assign can be a pain.
That's why now in LicenceOne, you can search for them by first name or email and assign your software managers in a flash 💥

Nobody adds value by spending hours collecting software invoices.

We've changed the way LicenceOne calculates and displays your application spend.
Now, instead of estimating your monthly spend, we take a lot of different factors into consideration and estimate the spend for the last billing cycle.
We've completly reworked our billing cycle algorithm to consider twice the amount of different factors before making a decision on what the most probable billing cycle is for your software.
The eagle-eyed among you will have also noticed that we've added an Other billing cycle for when your software payments do not follow a particular pattern (e.g. API access purchases, monthly subscriptions that were stopped and restarted etc.).
We've also added a
Waiting for more data... status of users' billing cycle when we don't have enough data to accurately predict whether it's monthly, yearly, or other. This status will change automatically once we do, or users can change it manually to override the system.
Now when you switch the tracking toggle to disabled we will hide your application or employee from appearing in your lists.
If you ever want to consult all of your untracked items, simply use the filter on the top left of your table and select
Untracked applications. By default, your filter will only have tracked applications selected.
You can now change a software's renewal date, go to the software's website, or stop tracking that software directly from the renewals section of the dashboard.
We've also made the
Software renewal date an editable field within the detailed application view so you can change it from there 😉
If you've ever been reviewing your company software subscriptions come across some niche software you've never heard of - you're not alone!
At least now to make things a little easier, you can directly open the website for the exact application concerned from your LicenceOne interface rather than having to go through Google search results or message the application manager.
Add data sourcebutton to include more information on what we actually detect from each source
Want to see all of the applications that an employee has access to and how often they use them? Us too.

Added We've added some text to the bottom of the login page so new users know where they can create an account

Changed We've changed the "Applications" table to include the number of users and the application manager
Changed Application switcher tab names to

Fixed Some recent changes meant that the renewal dashboard didn't display any data. Whoops. Fixed.
Fixed A particular case where our company logo placeholder wasn't displaying for some apps.
