Handle Lost Connection – We notify you when your device loses its Internet connection and automatically clear the notice when you’re connected again to help ensure you don’t lose any changes.
Better File Upload Error Messages – You now see specifically why a file wasn’t uploaded from some reason like “File too large.”

Bug Fixes:
Scroll Bars in Safari – Had some minor issues with scrolling columns of activities that are fixed now.

Coming Soon!
VIN Look-up – For vehicles, Upkeepr will lookup a VIN/WMI# and automatically fill in the Common Info with what we get back from the Internet.
Searchable Item Wizard – We’re making it easier to find a wizard for any item you want to maintain by letting you search by name instead of having to know the category first. We’ll still keep categories around to keep things organized, though.
Upkeepr Pro – Features for professional Service Providers who provide maintenance for their customers are coming soon. We’re rolling this out to Beta customers now, so Contact us if you want early access!
