"Great product which I have used for well over 5 years."
Version: Home Manager 2010 3.0.3016
Imports data from .csv files. I had almost 1,000 items and no other application was able to import my information from a backup file from another outdated program.
Allows pictures to be attached to the item.
Easy data entry for all items, with several details you can choose from to record almost anything about the item.
Easy to create complete backups in a .zip file format which can be restored just as easy.
Allows you to clone duplicate items instead of a separate entry.
Allows you to move a single item or multiple items from any location to any other location.
Allows you to modify details of one or several items all at the same time. Example - pick any number of similar items to change the name of the manufacturer, or model, etc. all at the same time.
Any item that is deleted goes to a deleted items folder and can be restored until it is deleted from the deleted folder.
It also offers many types of reports you can view or print.
The program does not provide additional "Locations" within any primary location such as your residence. There are "rooms" but if you put any kind of container in a room you can not put any item within the container. So if you have a chest of drawers, a dresser, or any kind of cupboard or cabinets, you can't put any item in any of those containers. If you have an entertainment center, the program does not allow you to make it into a container that you could then place the equipment within. If it is in your living room, then the equipment has to go in the living room also. There are also a couple of bugs. One I found will not allow you to delete the name of a manufacturer if it was entered with the incorrect spelling, or no longer exists. You can delete a dealer, but not a manufacturer. There are a couple other things, but they are minor annoyances and due not affect the program as a whole.
Overall it is a very good program that needs a little attention to make it an excellent product. I find it very easy to use, and to make changes to almost any field to provide me with the customization that I need to clarify any and all of the details regarding the item I have entered. I am very happy with the Liberty Street Software program Home Manager 2010, and looking forward to upgrading to the 2014 version.
