LEARNING ABOUT NEW SOFTWARE can be exciting and challenging at the same time. There is a lot of information to take in and some wonderful “make-life-easier” hacks to discover. The most important part of that learning process is asking the right questions, whether you are a newcomer to Scoro or just considering Scoro as your software.

We are also showing the new users all the tips and tricks on how to use the system in a more effective way. In the long term, team training ends up saving you tens of hours of time that you’d otherwise spend on troubleshooting and learning on your own.”
9. CAN I USE MY OWN BRANDING?
Yes. You can use your own branding for quotes, invoices, and other documents. A PDF-file can be made to look according to your wishes and delivered to your client from Scoro. You can also use PDF templates for creating contracts, for example, directly from quotes.
Last but not least, you can also show off your beautiful company logo on the top navigation menu throughout the site!
10. CAN I USE MY OWN SIGNATURES?
Yes, you can use your signatures in Scoro. You can copy your signature from your existing email client (e.g. Outlook, Apple Mail, etc.) or you can import the signature in HTML.
Set up the signature in Scoro under Settings > My Settings > Email. When creating your signature, use dynamic fields to make your life easier. When you have entered your details, these dynamic fields fetch that information automatically.
11. CAN I USE MY OWN TEMPLATES?
Yes, you can use your own PDF templates for creating contracts, invoices, quotes, and all other documents.
A PDF can be personalized and made to look exactly the way you like. Most of the things you see on a PDF can be modified under Settings > Site settings > PDF templates. You can modify an existing template or create a new one. To make it even easier for you, we’ve added a PDF library with six designs to choose from, so all you need to do, is take your pick.
12. CAN I IMPORT MY EXISTING DATA?
Yes, you can import your own contacts, products, images, invoices, receipts, and more. This can be done under the Import/Export module, and .CSV, .XLS and .XLSX files that have been created based on our example files can be imported. More detailed instructions on how to import data can be found in our Help Center.
13. CAN I EXPORT AND TAKE MY DATA WITH ME?
Yes, you can also export your data. Exporting can be done from the list views. If you don’t see the Export buttons in any views, consult your site administrator about relevant rights. You can export data either in .xls or .csv format. More detailed instructions on how to export data can be found in our Help Center.
14. WHERE IS SCORO HOSTED?
Scoro servers are currently hosted in Tallinn, Amsterdam, Toronto, and Sydney. That means Scoro is quite easily scalable. Your server will be selected depending on your company’s physical location to give you the fastest site speed available. And, we can add a new server anywhere if the need arises.
15. IS MY DATA SECURE?
Yes. All traffic in and out of Scoro is done over HTTPS protocol, which means all the communication is being encrypted. It is also worth mentioning that we use 256-bit encryption – the same as most banks use – for ensuring the highest level of security for your information. What’s more, every Scoro site is held separately from each other so that data cannot get mixed up or accessed without permission.
16. CAN I HIDE/LOCK CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION?
Yes. Every module (i.e. invoices, projects, reports, etc.) is role-based. Access can be removed completely or access can be limited according to viewing and modifying needs. There are also private events, task and projects, locked projects for selected users and more.
Detailed instructions on how to manage user roles and permissions can be found in our Help Center.
