Thanks for using GarageSale,

Absolutely stunning!

I heard from Grandtotal dev that he added SKU in invoices. He said that GS “should” add a field for SKU in invoice. Do you know something about it?

I’ll let him know that we are already exporting the SKU field in the file we are sending to GrandTotal.

Thanks Ilja, please let me know when you have news, I am waiting before upgrading because that would be the only reason to do, for me. If it does not work, sadly I will continue working without SKU in invoices, which is a problem for me. There are not many devs careful to customers needs like here in GS !!!

According from to the author of GT, the SKU is already imported as a custom field, which you need tom embed into your layout. I have no knowledge of GT, so I don’t know how that would work.

Thank you Ilja, is that GT 6 I suppose. Time ago, when I contacted their support, they told me that SKU wasn’t included in GT 5.

I have no clue, but I don’t think why would have sent my a screenshot from an old version. So it’s probably a feature of the current GT version.

Thanks Ilja for your help!

is looking good now. Ilja. Thanks it is very useful.

Just finally updated to v8.1 Beta 11, from v8.0.12b3 which has been working GREAT!!!

  1. So… updating v8.1 indexes took almost 10 minutes, without “progress” bar updating…

  2. Listing Search field is now much smaller, intentional??? See photos 1 and 2 below.

  3. Order item sold shows a SKU, but listing does NOT have SKU. See photos 3 and 4 below.
    Order item SKU IS a valid SKU. See photos 5 and 6 below.


Where? How???


Maybe I am just missing something, but where is this??

Two finger press on my track pad over the Launch Control window. Guess that is right mouse click but not certain.

I didn’t know it was there until recently.


Thank you David, something more hidden is quite difficult to think! Next time I will try and let you know… anyway, a button in launch control is really necessary.

The Services menu items no longer work. They DID work in v8.0.12.

Other Services menu items also return errors.


More about the “Show listings with/without issues” feature and how to access it is available in the help here:

Regards, Kristian

I will check, I am quite sure I tried right click on launch control but nothing appeared…

The “All Fields” options searches these SKU and listing name as well now. We’ll add extra menu entries for these later.

I know the answer! :slight_smile: Make toolsbars, and the search field width, customizable/configurable… :slight_smile:


I take this old thread to introduce a consideration. Why don’t you add a feature to relaunch those not started? I expected to find something like: right click > start again issues listings. Never thought about this?

P.S. Anyway, my suggestion, you really should put something more evident than a right click…
