It’s extraordinary to think that in just over a week it will be 2020–where did that decade go?
The good thing about the end of the year in this part of the world is that it is the start of the summer holidays. We might lack the Christmas snow, but the sun, warm weather and beaches more than compensate. Thank you for your support and ideas over 2019. The MoneyWorks Team wish you all a happy, safe holiday and a successful 2020.

Daylite Plug-in Update
We’ve recently released an update for the MoneyWorks-Daylite plug-in. Daylite is the popular CRM system for macOS, and the plug-in allows the seamless transfer of customer data between Daylite and MoneyWorks, as well as sending Daylite estimates to MoneyWorks as Quotes. This update (version 1.5.4) addresses a number of issues with the plug-in, and provides better mapping of address data between the two systems. The plug-in is available from the MoneyWorks Add-on Store.
MoneyWorks Current Version
The current version of MoneyWorks Datacentre is 8.1.9r1, which was released earlier this week. For users of MoneyWorks Gold, Express or Cashbook the current version is 8.1.9. We strongly recommend that users update to this version. For a list of changes/enhancements please see the MoneyWorks 8.1.9 Change Notes.
UK Users should note that 8.1.9 supports the generation of BACS files as part of the electronic payments step in creditor payments. See Electronic Payments for details of generating payment files.
A reminder that MoneyWorks 8.1.8 is the minimum MoneyWorks version that will run reliably on macOS Catalina, the current version of the macOS.
MoneyWorks Community Forum Status
A number of you have written in wondering about the status of the MoneyWorks Community Forum. Despite increasing the security around logging in, the forum has again been heavily spammed and we have had to deactivate it. At present, having restored a backup, it is available as read only.
End of Financial Year
If the end of the year also marks the end of your fiscal year, it might be timely to review this resource topic: What should I do at the End of Financial Year?.
Tips du Jour
Just one tip this time around: make sure you have a good holiday break and come back refreshed and eager to face a new year (and, in fact, decade).
