Here are our release notes for FG Funnels from October 27th, 2023 through November 1st, 2023. If you have any questions about these updates, or other questions about FG Funnels, please reach out to support@fgfunnels.com or live chat in the app and our team will be happy to help



Automatic Invoice Sync from FGF to QBO

  • We have enhanced our existing QBO integration further to create an invoice in QBO when an invoice is marked as sent inside FGF.
  • This will create a replica of the sent invoice, along with the total amount (including taxes and discounts) on QBO for frictionless accounting sync
  • Any updates made on the invoice inside FGF will be updated on QBO. This will include any invoice status change transitions inside FGF, such as the invoice is paid by the customer, or invoice is voided on FGF or any further discount is added upon customer request
  • This will not sync existing invoices already created within FGF. Only new invoices created from now on will get synced inside QBO. Although, any updates to an existing invoice will sync that invoice inside QBO as well
  • If a customer exists inside QBO with the same email id with which the transaction is processed, we will update the sales receipt corresponding to the same customer inside QB
  • If the customer is not present, we will create a new customer against the email ID with which the transaction is processed
  • Sub-accounts can connect their QBO account by navigating to the sub-account Settings -> Integrations. This will start working for businesses who already have their QBO account connected without any additional step requirement



Send Proposals, Estimates, & Contracts Automatically

  • Businesses will now be able to configure the Send Proposal/Estimate action inside the workflows to automatically send a document based upon a trigger
  • Users will be able to make use of the templates created inside the Proposals and Estimates module to define the document details that need to go out to the customer.
  • Business users will be able to configure the action name, select the From User to define the sender details and choose a template from one of the templates created inside Proposals and Estimates
  • The default/custom template configured inside the proposal and estimate settings will be used automatically to send the document from workflows as well
  • This fulfills use cases like automatically sending proposals after opportunity status is changed, or a tag is attached to a contact, or using any other trigger
  • This will also allow achieving the use case where the business wants to send out proposals to potential clients with one signature field attached to one of the business users and the other for the potential client. They can create proposal templates with a signature element assigned to the business user and leave the unassigned signature element will automatically get assigned to the potential lead

Stats View in the new Workflow Builder

  • View last 30 days stats on the workflow builder level
  • Workflow stats support for Email, SMS and Internal Notification, other actions will be added incrementally
  • Click on the values to see a detailed report


And/Or logic in Smartlist Filters

We now have added support for OR logic in filters along with the existing AND logic

  • What’s New?
    • OR Logic is supported for filters in contacts and smartlists
    • Support added for “search” in all the single-select, multi-select, checkbox, radio button, timezone fields within the filters
  • The new Filter structure is:
    • First level/group of filters can be created with the AND logic
    • These groups of filters can be further created with OR logic among them
  • What happens to my existing smartlists?
    • The existing smartlists followed the AND logic so they will remain as it is and will just be the first group of AND filters without any change.

Followers/Multiple Users for a Contact

We are excited to announce one of the most asked feature in Contacts. Add Followers to your contacts and give access to multiple users in your team.
