Thanks for the continuous updates for this great piece of software! But I have to ask... When will you be integrating better support for Vendors? It's a big piece that is missing is the ability to manage Vendors time on a Client Project, and manage payouts to these vendors from the same Project area. Currently the Vendors are set up separately and there's no way to assign them to existing client projects. This would be extremely helpful for managing subcontractors on a project.

What's going on with the keyboard tabbing between fields in the "Enter TImesheet" window? After auto-completing a Client, it automatically jumps to the "Hours" field. Shouldn't it go the "Project" next? Every time I enter the client, I have to tab all the way back around to "Project" to select my project.

The point of the jump is to go straight to the hours entry once you select a project, but the problem is that selecting a client also automatically selects a project and causes the jump. We will be removing the jump entirely from 9.2.1 and you'll be able to just manually hit tab a few times to get there.

Any updates on the 9.2 express version? You mentioned to submit the Express version to the App Store in May. It's now September and it's still 9.0.5 as far as I can see... any updates on this?

We are working on an update for Studiometry Express and Accounted on the MAS, and it is currently delayed because of the work we're doing on coming up to speed with Apple's Sandboxing requirements. We are sorry for the delay and are doing everything we can to bring the updates to the App Store versions of our software. We hope to have an update available very soon.
