Importing certificates using drag and drop

This release adds the ability to import certificates from other engineers just by dragging the files from Windows directly onto the certificate list in Pirform's Home Screen. You can also drag a folder to start importing certificates that are in that folder.

Import feature remembers your previous settings

The import feature used to remember the folder locations from your last import. It now also remembers your date range settings when you are importing from a folder.

Create certificate for the selected customer

Pirform has always made it really easy to create new certificates from existing certificates by letting copy or create a certificates of different types from existing certificates.

This release adds an item to the Create Certificate menu that lets you quickly create a new blank certificate for a customer.
