Sage Timeslips Premium Service Release 7

Sage Timeslips Premium Service Release 7 has just released. This Service Release is the result of customer feedback and continued quality assurance testing. Listed below are the issues that are fixed with this Service Release.

  • All of the issues found in Service Release 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6
  • Exiting local installer prematurely could display error.
    When setting up Sage Timeslips in a network environment, you install Timeslips to the server and then each local workstation installs a local copy from there. If you install patches to the server, the local installation of those patches starts automatically when workstations log in. If you exit the local installation process before files are updated on a workstation and then you try to access Timeslips on that workstation, you will receive an “Unable to create TSReg” error.
  • After creating a new database, the timekeeper list may not update properly.
    After you create a new database, Timeslips may not update the timekeeper list until after you create other new records (like clients) or until after you close and reopen Timeslips. Opening the Timekeeper List (select Names > Timekeeper Info) before taking one of these actions could display an empty list.
  • Creating a new database based on the current database displays an AV error.
    Creating a new database based on current database can display an AV after the new database was created successfully.
  • Converting databases from BDE versions of Timeslips now detects corrupt audit house settings.
    When converting a database from a BDE version of Timeslips, the conversion process could fail if audit house settings were corrupt in the database. The conversion process can now detect corrupt settings and replace them with default settings, allowing the process to complete successfully.
  •  Logging in as Supervisor always opens the Getting Started wizard.
    When security is set up for a database (select Setup > Security > Global), you can log in as one of the timekeepers or you can log in as the Supervisor. When logging is a Supervisor, the Getting Started wizard should only open the first time you log in.
  • Importing slips with unknown tasks or expenses can cause an AV error.
    When importing slips with TSImport (select File > Import), if the import file contained task names or expenses names that were not yet in the Timeslips database, the import could fail with an AV error.
  • You can apply payments to converted (CNV) invoices.
    When converting data from very old versions, such as Timeslips 8, the conversion process retains older invoices for historical reporting purposes. These converted invoices are marked with a CNV indicator on the Accounts Receivable Transaction List (select Transactions > Accounts Receivable). Although you should not be able to apply new payments to these invoices, Timeslips was allowing you to start this process.
  • Accounts Receivable List may show incorrect balances for Proof Stage clients.
    When reviewing transactions on the Accounts Receivable List (select Transactions > Accounts Receivable) with View By set to Client, the current client’s A/R balance is shown at the bottom of the list. This balance could be incorrect for any client in Proof Stage, although the balance in Client Information is still correct.
  • Bills exported for Ledes may include additional clients.
    When using Ledes for electronic billing (select Setup > Audit Houses), you can set up the billing process to export each client to individual files. When using this setup, the first export processes correctly, but each subsequent export file will contain the current client and the clients before it.
  • The “Slip Timer is On” filter does not always filter slips.
    On the Slip List (select Slips > Time and Expense Slips), you can click the Selection button to set up filters; these filter can determine which slips will display in the list. When using the “Slip Timer is On” filter, slips with a running timer are not always filtered properly.
  • Overwriting a filter template saves a new copy instead.
    When working with selection filters, you can save them as filter templates that you can retrieve for use later. If you save a filter template with the same name as an existing filter, a new copy is saved instead of overwriting the existing copy. For example, if a filter template MyFilter existed and you saved a new filter template with the name MyFilter, Sage Timeslips would prompt you to overwrite the current copy, but it would instead show two copies of MyFilter.
  • On Invoice Listing, the Invoice Balance filter does not exclude 0-Balance invoices.
    When printing the Invoice Listing report, you can use selection filters to limit the invoices included. If you use the Invoice Balance filter to exclude 0-balance invoices (for example by setting an Invoice Balance range of 0.01 to Highest), the 0-balance invoices are still included on the report.
  • Reverse Payment transactions may not post properly to the general ledger.
    When attempting to post Reverse Payment transactions to your general ledger using TAL Pro, a Reverse Payment would post only if you were also posting the original payment at the same time. The Reverse Payment would not post properly if the original payment was already posted to the general ledger.
  • Custom fields may not filter the Reprint Bills list properly.
    You can set up custom fields (select Setup > Custom Fields) to store data values that Sage Timeslips typically does not track. Some of the ways you can use these values is to filter data or sort data appearing on bills and reports.
    When using custom fields to filter bill images on the Reprint Bills list (select Bills > Reprint Bills), the list still shows all bill images.
  • List type custom fields may not filter data properly if the list values contain an ampersand.
    You can set up custom fields (select Setup > Custom Fields) to store data values that Sage Timeslips typically does not track. Some of the ways you can use these values is to filter data or sort data appearing on bills and reports.
    When trying to use list-type custom fields to filter data, Timeslips can fail to find match if the list values include the ampersand sign (&).
  • Some regional settings can cause AV errors when saving slips.
    If you change date setup in the Regional Settings control panel to include “MMM” for month, Sage Timeslips will display errors when saving time and expense slips.
  • Some regional settings can cause AV errors when saving slips.
    If you change date setup in the Regional Settings control panel to include “MMM” for month, Sage Timeslips will display "Info returned is Invalid" errors when trying to check for subscription entitlement.
