Automatically Capture Receipt Data

Create Checkout Links From the FreshBooks Mobile App
Checkout Links allow you to collect payments on fixed-priced items and services using a simple URL or QR code. And now, you can create a link and share it with your client right from the iOS or Android FreshBooks app.

When your Tracking Format is set to Duration, you can now pause from within the Timer or resume any logged Time Entry to track more time to it again. This makes it easier to track your time more accurately.
