I'm trying to customize my Computer Technician Jobs app - see sample here: https://www.appsheet.com/Template/AppDef?appName=ComputerTechnicianJobsandClients-109217

I currently get a total daily labor revenue using the Group Aggregate / SUM :: Labor option. I would like to also be able to display week-to-date, month-to-date, and year-to-date totals. I assume I would need to create a new table or chart view to be able to get that info and create a formula to get the information from the Date and Labor columns of my Jobs spreadsheet.

Any ideas on how to proceed would be much appreciated.

I just found on a client's iOS device this unique method of installing adware that involves adding a Profile, Mailbox & Notes. https://discussions.apple.com/thread/7477021?tstart=0

This is my high-tech method of getting snow off my satellite dish. I'm trying to decide which one to get.

I am hating Windows 10 more and more each day. Most jobs used to be a quick fix. On this repair after spending many hours on a "black screen" issue, I have to resort to taking the computer back to the way it came out of the box.

+Matthew Rodela You helped with the re-design of my website a few years ago. I'm looking for a WordPress plugin that will easily create tables. In the Dashboard, searching for "tables" in "Add Plugins" shows 87 pages/2598 results and there's NO WAY to sort the results by "Popular", "Number of reviews", "Average rating", "Tested/untested with my version of WordPress", "Last updated", etc. There must be a better way or website to search for plugins. ?? I want something that's popular, compatible and has lots of 5 star reviews.

It's no wonder why WordPress has so many security vulnerabilities. If I were less tech savvy, I would just install the first plugin in the search results that has no ratings, "10+ active installs" and hasn't been updated in years - and likely install a plugin with a huge security hole. Your thoughts?

Since AT&T would rather be spending billions on media acquisitions rather than improving my cell coverage, I will be switching to Verizon.
