  • Freshbooks - some of the features we love
    • Time tracking
    • Easy invoicing
    • Online payments
    • Automatic reminders
    • Recurring invoicing
    • Paper invoices sent from Freshbooks
    • Pricing Note: After the show recording I contact Freshbooks to discuss the pricing. The pricing displayed on their websitedoes not include fees for multiple users. If you have three people using Freshbook, you would add $10 to the price for each addition user - $20.

Module of the Week: 


The Droogle Module (sometimes referred to as DR. OOGLE) integrates Google Drive (formerly google docs) with Drupal. It provides a list of a configured google user's documents. Droogle also works with Organic Groups and each Organic Group can hook up to a unique user account to manage its group documents. The module's creation is sponsored by Babson College and is to be used to better manage documents for groups, classes, etc. Integrating documents with google means better access to documents on ipads, iphones, etc, since there are many apps for these devices to sync your google docs account(s). Droogle is not to be confused with BBoogle, which is Blackboards integration with Google Docs -- but Droogle works much the same way and serves the same purpose.
