RepairDesk Round-Up for the Year 2020

The year 2020 has changed so much about our lives, our businesses, and our goals, including how we used to communicate with each other. We all were on the same boat in the year 2020 and it was the most challenging year for RepairDesk as well. But it has finally come to an end, and we’re so happy you’re here with us.

Cheers to all the survivors!

But, even with the difficulties we faced, we managed to introduce some great new features to RepairDesk during this time.

Here’s a quick recap of all that was added to RepairDesk in 2020.



Improvements to the Low Stock Report, Trade-In module, and adding the option for mandatory IMEI/Serial numbers. General bug fixes to improve stability.

Searching customers by the network, disabling the invoice creation pop-up, and the option to restrict IMEI/Serial changes for trade-ins was added, along with bug fixes.
