SBA Update 2 Details

It has been a while since I've posted, so I thought I'd chime in on the new SP2 (details here). It seems like Microsoft is jumping on the rapid-fire release train that Intuit has been on for a while. (Intuit puts out 8 or so updates to QB per year) It'll be interesting to see how many more we get out of Microsoft this year.

One thing I have to commend them on is addressing feedback from users.
  1. Matching transactions is painfully slow -- Fixed!
  2. Memo and Reference numbers can't be printed -- Fixed!
  3. Time entry dates are not carried over to invoices -- Fixed!
  4. Journal entries don't have totals -- Fixed!
etc, etc, etc...

They fixed a bunch of user feedback in SP1 as well. Personally, I'm excited to see how far they take it.
