The dashboard shows you exactly where you stand. How much you're owed, how much you owe, and what your cashflow is. The piechart shows you the proportion of money owed to you over a period of up to 30, 30-60, 60-90 and 90+ days. The graph shows you invoices, payments received and bills paid.
At the top of the page there are quick links so that you can do the things that you do most often, more quickly; create a new client, record a payment, bill or expense or create a new invoice.
The Brightbook diary is unique feature to bookkeeping. It's just like your email, organising your bookkeeping activity. It's a great way of keeping you up-to-date with how much you are owed & how much you owe, as well as reminding you what else needs your attention.
