Improving support with Frappe Helpdesk

After much anticipation and Frappe Helpdesk being under work for some time now, we are happy to share that it is now powering our own Frappe support portal - Our complete support ecosystem, covering ERPNext, Framework, Frappe HR, and Frappe Cloud, has successfully transitioned to Frappe Helpdesk.

As with most migrations, this journey has not been without challenges. Our dedicated team, led by Sabu Siyad and Saqib Ansari, has put in tremendous effort over the past few days to ensure the portal is as user-friendly as possible. The new Helpdesk-based support portal represents a significant UI enhancement compared to our previous Frappe portal.

For folks who are already using Frappe support and have been utilizing Helpdesk recently, we would love to hear your thoughts. Please feel free to share your feedback by logging any Helpdesk-related issues. Your insights will be invaluable as we strive to make this support software world-class.

And, for those of you looking to implement a similar system within your organization, we invite you to explore Frappe Helpdesk software – it's a 100% open-source and modern ticketing system.

Now set up daily asset depreciation on ERPNext

You can now opt for ‘daily depreciation’ for your assets. This is a method where we spread out the depreciation amount of an asset over the days in a specific time frame, usually a month. This means that the amount of depreciation an asset experiences can change based on how many days are in that particular month.

For instance, let's take February and a month with 31 days as examples. In February, the depreciation amount would be less than a month with 31 days simply because February has fewer days. This way, we're accounting for the varying number of days in different months and ensuring a fair distribution of the asset's depreciation.
