Updated: 03 July 2024
Studio WIP makes it easy to see everything you're working on in one place.

Studio WIP

Studio WIP is a consolidated view of all tasks across all projects. Rather than clicking into each individual project to view your active tasks, you can now see them all in one organised space. This makes is easier for you to track deadlines, resource staff time and build your weekly program across all projects.

You can also add new tasks, edit existing tasks, filter by project, filter by team member and start/stop time entries. Finally everything your team is working on, in one place.

  • Resize images within schedules.
  • Improvements to shared view of Pinboards.
  • Various UX and speed improvements.

What’s coming in February?

Invoicing & Xero Integration

Programa’s new invoicing tools will finally bring your project workflow and billing systems into one place. No more copying and pasting between spreadsheets, time tracking tools and your invoicing platform. With Programa you’ll be able to quickly create a new invoice, add products from Schedules, time entries and custom items, and send to your clients in minutes. Clients can make payments online which means you’ll get paid faster.

Our Xero integration means there’s nothing to do in Xero, other than reconcile your payments once they’ve been received. When you create and send invoices with Programa, we will synchronise this information with Xero, from creating a draft, to approval and marking an invoice as sent. You can also choose your Xero accounts directly within Programa.

Trade Portal Improvements & Shopify Integration

In February we will begin rolling-out significant improvements to the Trade Portal, including a redesigned interface, powerful search functionality, dozens of new brands and speed improvements.

Our Shopify integration will allow brands to register and integrate their products on Programa within minutes. No more double handling and managing multiple databases – simply update your website and Programa will instantly update to reflect your changes.

Improvements to Schedules, Web Clipper and PDF Exports

There’s dozens of improvements planned for February, including implementing Card View within Schedules, allowing a more visual presentation of your projects, increased functionality of the Web Clipper, improvements and optimisations for PDF Schedule Exports and much, much more.
