On August 16, Sage Software, the manufacturers of Timeslips Premium, announced a service release that includes new features for Timeslips Premium. This is the first release since Sage Timeslips announced its priority would be moving forward with Timeslips Premium. It is not intended, nor will it work, with Timeslips Version 2020.
What are the new benefits for Premium subscribers?
- Restrict Slip Entry Before or After a Date – We’ve often heard the lament of billing administrators that timekeepers will back date slips, or mistakenly enter them with the wrong years (2029? Really?). This leads to fees and costs that are often excluded from bills. Now administrators have the ability to prevent timekeepers from entering charges with dates in ranges that have already been billed; or warn them if dates are used in the future.
- Enhancements for Slip Timers – It’s now easier to detect if timers are running on slips with a new Stop Timers dialog box. This window shows slips with timers running – and their duration — so it is easy to spot anomalies. There is also an option to stop a timer automatically if it hits a certain threshold (example: no timer should exceed 8.0 hours).
- Password Protect Bills & Statements – Email bills in .PDF format and they go out into the internet universe. And the detail of the services provided to clients is there for anyone to see. If that is a concern, users can now password-protect bills and statements printed to PDF, so unauthorized viewers cannot open them.
- Lists, Lists, Lists! – Look what we can do!
Change the fields that appear in List windows
- Print a list of names from a list window that reflects the columns you chose to display
- Search on any of the displayed columns in a name list
- New Options for LawPay –
- Support for LawPay eChecks
- New tokens for LawPay messages on bills that include replenishment amounts (“LawPay Link with Invoice plus Replenish Amount” and “LawPay Link with Balance plus Replenish Amount”)
- Email Message Requesting Replenishment of Funds – At last: the ability to directly send an email message to a client requesting replenishment of their funds balance without having to send a bill
In addition to these new features, the service release also addresses issues reported by Timeslips Premium users.
