KitBase 2 - BETA Available to Download and Buy
« on: May 17, 2017, 12:51:44 PM »
KitBase 2 - The BETA Has Landed!

I am pleased to announce that you can now download and buy the KitBase 2 beta version.

This version is fully usable but missing Excel import, export and report features. These will be introduced as part of the full version release.

Licenses purchased now will be valid when the full version is released.

A feature is included to automatically import your KitBase 1.4 data into KitBase 2 with a couple of clicks. Choose the 'Import KitBase 1.x Database' from the starting page in KitBase 2.



The free trial download is available here:
http://www.kitbase.com/download.htm

You can buy a full version or upgrade here:
http://www.kitbase.com/buy.htm

You can read about the new features in KitBase 2 here:

I hope you like what I have done with KitBase. It is now hugely more customisable and there are more good things to come now that I have re-written the core database. I plan to release a number of free updates, as I did with KitBase 1, along with mobile versions.

Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions.

Watch this space for Beta 2 with export and reports...

Gary.

Hi Gary,
I bought the Beta version and have just got to importing my 1.4. I noticed that the import function doesn't seem to import my custom categories. (I used that to describe the type of aircraft and the propulsion mechanism and number of engines). Is it just me? If not, will the full version have that facility?
Cheers,
Arend

Hi Arend,

The import function does bring across the custom fields.

If you open a kit record, you should see a 'Custom Fields' tab in there. It does appear in a different position in the tabs - further to the right (after notes).

Where you had used custom fields in the views, they should be shown in KitBase 2. You can add them into other views as usual via the 'Customise Current View' option.

In KitBase 2 you can re-arrange the fields on the tabs to fit with your requirements. They don't have to stay in the 'Custom Fields' tab.
Click the 'Data Entry Form Layout' button on the main kit list toolbar.

Hope this helps.

Kind Regards,
Gary
