Yes if you don't go on auditions, book jobs, need to follow up with contacts or keep track of expenses/income and education then you are right -- protalentPERFORMER is probably not for you.

But your feedback about the import utility is useful and is something that we are currently working on.

I really appreciate this group's constructive criticism and suggestions. As performers we want to get your input because our goal is to make something to make your lives easier.

I like stretch's idea about sorting all the printed labels by zipcode. It seems like a total pain and it's required for bulk rate mail.

Import from csv, vcards, excel, ics(icalendar), and tab deliminated text files. That should do a lot of it. the importing shouldn't be much of a big deal, but the main problem comes with making it match up with your product the right way.

also, something that I see picking up in the next few years in webdav. You might want to look into it for future versions. Ical and mozilla's new calendar use it to publish and subscribe to internet calendars. I don't know it's power, but its an information sharing platform.

We are going to continue to investigate the invoicing idea.

But in the meantime why not download the free trial and take a good look at the income and expenses pages and see how it can help you.

thanks.

Your rates to invoice a client are not the same as the expenses you incurred to do the gig.

If you input the mileage and meals figure as your expenses, the program would be no good to track your actual expenses and income, and thus net (hopeful) gain.
