The Frappe Newsletter - July 2023
September 18, 2023
Hey, there 👋
It's the monthly round-up time again. Our newer products are shaping up beautifully, and things are looking brighter than ever! But that's not all – there’s some fun to share from our non-work side too. We recently had a blast during our quarterly off-site at Igatpuri, a lovely town near Mumbai. Despite getting drenched in the rain, we didn't let anything stop us from connecting and brainstorming on strategies for Frappe's future. Here's our team in one frame, a few minutes before we wrapped up!
Let’s get into the exciting things we have in store for you.
Use separate accounts to record advance payments on ERPNext 🙌
Great news! We have solved the issue with advance payments in Sales Invoices on ERPNext. Now, you can record them using separate accounts for better accuracy and compliance. Just select the "Book Advance Payments in Separate Party Account" feature and set default accounts in the Company master.
When you receive an advance payment from a customer, it will show up as a liability in the General Ledger, and when you create a Sales Invoice, it will be smoothly allocated. No more worries about violating offsetting rules. Read more about it and try this new option today for a hassle-free experience. If you need any help, feel free to reach out!Checkout ERPNext

An intuitive Home tab. It's here to provide a seamless onboarding experience, guiding users with easy-to-follow steps and offering quick actions for smooth app navigation. You will also be able to keep a tab on your recent tracks.

All new automated stock-check for invoices on Frappe Books
Frappe Books have gotten smarter with the recent updates. Now, while creating a sales invoice, our system automatically checks to make sure you have enough stock for the items you are selling. And if it spots any mismatch, it will give you a friendly heads-up. But you will be in complete control. You can decide whether to proceed with the sale, update your stock, or take a moment to plan ahead.

Classes on Frappe LMS just got a student-friendly makeover
Frappe LMS spruced up the class details interface for a better student experience. Now, when they log in, they will see the entire course card and not just the course name in a list. Also, the moderators now have easy access to important information, like the number of courses a student has completed, assessments finished, and assessments waiting for grading. This will give insights to the moderators to help their students succeed by giving personalized support and guidance whenever needed.

Partner meet-ups and new additions to the Partnerships team
Last week, our team had a good time in Pune, where they got to meet and hang out with our enthusiastic Partner community at the Frappe Local meet-up. The event was a joint effort with our certified Gold Partner of ERPNext, New Indictrans. It was truly wholesome to have industry leaders, experts, and visionaries all come together to delve into the incredible potential of ERP solutions, especially focusing on ERPNext. There were engaging discussions centered around tackling challenges and embracing digital transformation through no-code / low-code automation. And of course, connecting with the awesome Frappe Community was the cherry on top.
On a related note, Tridots Tech Private Limited, Solufy Pvt Ltd, and Isoftstone leveled up and are now Certified Frappe Partners. We have also expanded our family by welcoming an impressive count of 10 entry-level partners on board and are eagerly looking forward to seeing them grow and become certified partners in the upcoming months.
Check out our updated partner portal on frappe.io and find a partner who could help you with your business needs. If you are one of our partners, we would love to hear your thoughts and experiences with us!
