Modifications

Time & Material Billing Software

  • To help streamline input, the Company Information dialog has been modified. The Identification and Reference Column tabs have been combined into one tab: Reference and Identification. The information required on this tab mirrors the two previous tabs.

  • In order to manage Work Management parts catalogs within the Time & Material Billing software, a new menu command is now available on the Database menu: Work Management Parts Catalogs. This allows you to add, remove, or view catalogs available in the Time & Material Billing application.

  • The validation for phone numbers and email addresses was removed. Customers who had previously added this data to the Time & Material Billing prior to the validation experienced issues with due to non-conformance of older data.

  • If you are using the Work Management system in conjunction with the Time & Material Billing software, the following fields now automatically populate:

    • Org Units

    • Capabilities

    • Employees
      Note: These fields pull directly from the Work Management application.

    • New buttons been added to the main Time & Material Billing toolbar.
      Note: These toolbar buttons are not available if you are not connected to the Work Management system in the Time & Material Billing application.

Database Manager

A new column is available in the Database Manager allowing you to select items for inclusion in a catalog that can be exported to the Work Management application. The field technician is then able to select these items as necessary. For example:

  • When you take off these items in the Time & Material Billing software and send a job to the Work Management system, the items will be available in the mobile application (used by the technician).

  • The technician selects the items used on the job so these can be properly included in the billing produced by the Time & Material Billing software.
