Design for Flow; Kill your preferences

April 9, 2008


Designing for flow is something we strive for here at FreshBooks, and every time we roll out a release, we get a little closer to achieving our design ideals with respect to designing for flow – it’s a never ending project.

In the last release we were able to kill off our “default terms” preference for estimates and invoices — so now instead of having to go to “settings” and set your “default terms” you can set those terms *in context” as you create your first invoice.
