Beginning with Version 2021, there is a Guided Tour and Getting Started Checklist to help new users navigate the Tabs3 Software.
The Guided Tour shows new users how to navigate the software by providing a quick overview of:
You can access the Guided Tour from the Help menu by selecting Navigational Tour.
The Getting Started Checklist spotlights key features in each application. For example, in Tabs3 Billing, the Getting Started Checklist has actions for the following:
Once you have completed an action (e.g., added a contact, generated a statement, etc.), the action is considered completed and will display a green check mark. Once all items have been marked complete, the Getting Started Checklist is no longer shown. Hovering over an underlined term displays a definition of the term. Hovering over an action displays a check mark that can mark the item complete or incomplete, a link to a Help topic on the subject, and, in some cases, a link to a training video.
The Getting Started Checklist also provides Help and training resources, including links to the Administrator Guide, training videos, Help, the online newsletter and a support overview. A progress bar is provided to help track your progress. Additionally, you can hide the Getting Started Checklist by clicking Hide Getting Started in the upper right-hand corner. If hidden, you can bring back the Getting Started Checklist by clicking Getting Started.
Note: These new features are only displayed when a newly created user logs into any of the applications; existing users will not see them.
You’ve probably heard that WorkFlows are a powerful tool, but what exactly are WorkFlows and how are they set up? WorkFlows provide the ability for users to initiate predefined actions to occur based on creation, changes, or deletions of other records. WorkFlows provide streamlining of common tasks by automatically starting another task related to the previous creation or change. For example, you can create a WorkFlow that automatically begins an email to a colleague when a new journal record is added for their client, that automatically begins Word Document Assembly to create a welcome letter when a new client is added, that automatically sends an eNote when a record is deleted, and more!
Knowledge Base Article R11307, “All About WorkFlows,” provides an overview of WorkFlows, examples that break down how WorkFlows are set up, best practices, technical information, and frequently asked questions about WorkFlows.
Our Knowledge Base can be accessed at support.Tabs3.com. You can also access our Knowledge Base while in the software by selecting Help | Internet Resources | Knowledge Base.
If you need to report on fees, costs, or payments, the Transaction File List or Task Code Billing Report is your answer. Both reports have great flexibility and options. The Transaction File List and Task Code Billing Report have similar options. The Task Code Billing Report includes task based billing clients only. However, the Transaction File List includes both task based transactions and non-task based transactions.
The following are examples of when you may want to run a Transaction File List or Task Based Billing Report:
For a closer look at the Transaction File List, including detailed examples and report setup, as well as a comparison to the Task Based Billing Report, visit Knowledge Base Article R11039, “How the Tabs3 Transaction File List Can Work for You.”
