    • Help text in the main view hides when help is turned off. This allows you to see more views in one go and speeds up selection of the views.
    • Tags, Category and Project popup lists now stay open to quickly and easily select multiples.

If you requested a feature that has been added in version 3.0 I'd be most grateful if you would write a review on the App Store to help support future enhancements. The more positive reviews that are posted the more likely it is that I can continue to enhance Meeting Gold. 

Much more coming in Version 4.0. Due to time constraints I've had to postpone a number of features to version 4.0. So, if you have requested something that is not in version 3.0 it is fairly likely that it will be along in version 4.0. Thank you for your patience.
