Improved documentation

We've improved our online documentation by adding sections to make it easier to find your way around. The search feature has been improved and we've added a section about the soon to be released Shine Forms Tablet App beta. You can read find our online documentation here:

Recording looped supplies

A very small new feature is the addition of the ability to record if a supply is looped on EIC or EICR. This information could be required for DNO applications for connection of renewable technologies such as EV or ASHP.

Automatic OneDrive detection

Pirform has always been able to use online storage solutions like Dropbox, OneDrive or similar to store your certificates online.

Whilst fixing a problem with the automatic detection of Dropbox, we've also added automatic detection of your OneDrive folder.
