2021 R2 Release Notes

Refined UI for more speed and precision

The latest release of Naverisk continues to make the application more intuitive with greater control over the devices and clients you manage. The aim here is to provide faster access to the tools you use most, for a better user experience.

Below we highlight some key features of this update, click here for the full release notes.

Devices Tab Upgrade

The devices section is one of the most active areas in Naverisk so we have given it an upgrade, with two new tabs to help bridge some of the functionality gaps of the past.

A new Software tab gives an overview of all applications installed at the device or client level. This section will make it easier to locate a specific version of software and make changes to any devices with it installed.

For example, a faulty version of a software has been exposed with vulnerabilities. Do a query with the new Quick Search bar to locate and update all workstations with the rogue version.

Winget for Updates

Naverisk is now using Microsoft Winget to manage software installed on Windows 10 and 11 Devices. If the Windows 10 device does not have the Winget already, Naverisk will install it to the selected device first.

Patching has a new home!

The Patching tab has been moved from the menu to a handy tab in the Devices section. This change was based on user data and feedback as devices and patching are normally used in succession, so it is more intuitive to have them in the same location with many tasks interconnected.

The new tab has all the same functions a before, but now in a more readily accessible location.

Global Quick Search

We’ve expanded the Ticket and Device quick search bar to include Software which will take you straight to the new tab in devices. This new search will allow you to quickly type a name and/or version of an application to check the status and make changes to clients devices where required.

You will find it now located in the top left of Naverisk, which should help speed up your workflow.

Device Statuses

In keeping with usability refinements, the 3 active device statuses have been renamed, to make things clearer for the technician.

Online: Agent is Connected and up to date

Maintenance Mode: Agent is in Maintenance Mode

Offline: Agent is Disconnected

Find a full list of agent statuses in the release notes below.

Custom Reports

We added an RTF output to all Custom Reports which will improve the compatibility and editing options. New custom reports created after the release of R2 will automatically be available as RTF documents also.

This is a quality-of-life upgrade requested by users.

Task Manager UI

The size of the task manager dialogue box has been increased for easier handling. We also added a restart services option to the services dropdown menu and a new view to let users filter on all running services, stopped services and stopped automatic services.

Other improvements

Outside of the features listed above, there are a raft of improvements across the entire application:

  1. OS Device Types for Windows 11 and Server 2022
  2. Dashboard added to the NEW button
  3. Classic theme removed, all user to standard UI
  4. Description field of grid character count increased
  5. Breadcrumb display for SNMP devices
  6. Reformat time lapse in Devices page

2020 R3 Release Notes

2020 R3 Release Notes

Hot on the heels of our 2020 R2 release comes R3!

We are proud and excited to announce the 2020 R3 release!
Due to overwhelming demand the decision was made to primarily focus 2020 R3 on completing Naverisk’s PSA billing automation capabilities.

(Note: Naverisk 2021 R1 will, in turn, be primarily focused RMM updates and improvements).

With the introduction of an Invoicing Report, Service Catalogue and a Recurring Service Agreement, Naverisk now offers a complete MSP billing automation platform for not only MSP services, but 3rd party products as well (such as M365, or managed AV).

MSP billing agreements now supported:

  • AYCE User
  • AYCE Device
  • Block Time
  • Term
  • Time and Materials
  • Recurring Service (new)
We have a large number of MSP partners running PSA tools integrated with Naverisk. The completion of our MSP billing automation capabilities will allow these partners to realize the cost savings and efficiencies of running a single all-in-one RMM, Service Desk and PSA platform.

Service catalogue

Addition of a master catalogue of all services supplied by your MSP business. Use these services in recurring agreements to automate billing for such. Each service will have the following attributes:

  • Service name
  • Service description
  • Type – five options: Hardware, Software, SaaS, HaaS or IT Service
  • Vendor – Customizable list of suppliers (see Settings section)
  • Buy price – cost of service (used to calculate agreement profitability)
  • Payment term – Frequency of payment to vendor (used to calculate agreement profitability).

New agreement – recurring service

Ability to automate invoicing for recurring services (e.g. fixed fee services, 3rd party services, M365 licenses, etc). Including auto calculation of profitability on a per agreement basis. Note that recurring service agreements can only be associated to one type of service.

Ticket and note billing statuses, queues & workflows

Introduction of ticket and note billing statuses and ticket billing queues. Easily review, update and approve billable time or expense notes in tickets. Tickets listed in the billing queue will automatically clear as billable notes are invoiced in Xero, QuickBooks or marked as invoiced in Naverisk.

Note billing statuses, set manually, as follows:

  1. Billable or Non-Billable
  2. Ready to Invoice or Not Ready to Invoice
  3. Invoiced or Not Invoiced
Ticket billing statuses are automatically set by note billing statuses, as follows:
  1. Non-billable – ticket only includes non-billable notes
  2. Reviewable – ticket includes billable notes which have not been set as ready to invoice
  3. Ready to invoice – ticket includes billable notes which have all been set to ready to invoice
  4. Partially invoiced – ticket includes a mix of already invoiced billable notes and billable notes marked as ready to invoice
  5. Invoiced – ticket includes billable notes which have all been invoiced
Tickets marked as non-billable, or invoiced, will not show in the new billing queue.

Invoice report

Consolidate all your client agreements into one invoice report view for export into Xero or Quickbooks, via existing integrations. Includes the ability to include billing information for 3rd party services, including the upcomming Naverisk data protection platform. Invoice reports will display the following note and agreement attributes:

  • Whole month will be included in full
  • Days will be counted separately as Pro Rata
