TimeSite Pro continues to improve features and performance, 22 Nov 2021

22 November 2021

As we start winding down our development plan for 2021, we've been fine-tuning a number of key new features of TimeSite Pro as well as improving performance and stability. We've completed the update of our AWS infrastructure and concluded the formal monitoring of our new servers. Everything is now working better than ever.

We've received some excellent feedback on our Trust Accounting module for the legal profession. It now includes support for additional types of trust accounts including Controlled Money, Fidelity Funds, Investment Money, and Power Money. You can transfer funds from a standard trust account to these new fund types, and pay invoices from the standard trust account.

We've improved a number of our standard Reports & Dashboard widgets and included a couple of new reports into our extensive range of pre-built reports. Please let us know if you'd like to suggest any improvements to any of our reports. We have also been working on the Forecast tab in the Dashboard screen to enable you to evaluate all revenue as well as just time-related revenue. We've been working with a number of customers to develop custom revenue analysis reports for management. An example of this is the new User Margin report.

Let us know if you like to discuss your TimeSite Pro reporting requirements in more detail.

Finally, we are introducing additional flexibility when hiding and/or including timesheet records in an invoice. Together with new and improved invoice templates, you will be able to create a custom invoice item to summarise multiple timesheet records processed in the invoice. Our recent enhancements to invoice adjustments (write-up and write-down) and fixed price project invoices ensures that our Invoice screen is now both flexible and productive to use for complex time billing scenarios.

Our 2021 development plan has been significantly guided by enhancement requests from our customers. We will be starting to plan for 2022 soon. Let us know if you have any other thoughts about how we can improve TimeSite Pro in an email to [email protected]. You can find more details on these and other recent enhancements to TimeSite Pro in our Knowledge Base.
