Introducing myhomefiling 4

It’s official, myhomefiling 4 is now available

We’ve been hinting that this release would land fairly soon, and today it has.  It’s been several months in the making as we’ve been working on our most requested feature, namely the ability to add your own Cabinets and Folders. Coupled with a some other large changes, we’ve deemed this release worthy enough of a major version number change, hence the 4, rather than a 3.x version.

The three main changes to the program are

  1. Create custom Cabinets and Folders
    You can now create up to 10 custom Cabinets with each Cabinet capable of storing 15 custom Folders, giving you a whopping 150 extra places to file your documents!
  2. Improved Reminders system
    Reminders have been in the program since version 2, but these haven’t really been used to full effect. From version 4, your reminders will now have more prominence in the program. Check out page 12 of the new user guide for further details
  3. Export Reminders to iCal format
    To go along with the improved reminders system, we’ve added the ability to export your reminders to the iCal format. These exports can be used with popular email and calendar programs (such as Microsoft Outlook) which will allow you to keep track of your reminders when you’re on the move (if you sync calendar’s with your mobile phone of online services)

There are also a whole raft of tweaks under the hood to make the program work just that little bit faster and also to address some bugs that have been reported since the last release.
If you’re already using a previous version of myhomefiling, then you ‘ll see an update notification the next time you start the program.  Or you can get the latest setup file from the download page.

We’ve also gone social, so you can now find us on Twitter and Facebook.  Follow us to find out the latest news as it happens.
