Tabs3 Connect: Tabs3 Connect Enhancements

December 2018    Tags: , , ,

In Version 19, Tabs3 Connect has been updated with a cleaner, more modern look, including new icons, a new font, and updated colors. The icons are very similar to those in Tabs3 and PracticeMaster that you are already familiar with, and all of the pages now use the Open Sans web font to provide a consistent look between devices and improve readability.

In addition to this graphical makeover, Tabs3 Connect has received a few enhancements to its features.

  • A graphical Recap of Hours window was added, which includes Daily, Weekly, and Monthly options. This graph allows you to easily see total hours and amounts, broken down by billable and non-billable fees.


  • If Tabs3 archive records are converted to PracticeMaster as archived fee and cost records, the archived fee records can now be viewed in Tabs3 Connect. Keep in mind that these transactions cannot be edited or deleted. To configure this in PracticeMaster, select the Convert Tabs3 archive records to PracticeMaster fee and cost records check box in the Synchronize PM and Tabs3/TAS program (Maintenance | Integration | Synchronize PM and Tabs3 / TAS).
  • Searching now behaves like PracticeMaster when searching for multiple words. For example, searching for “DEPOSITION SMITH” now finds occurrences of “Deposition of John Smith,” whereas before it did not. This improved searching applies to the search box on all List pages, the Matter Manager, and all lookup windows.
  • Easily add fees for any timekeeper using the new Timekeeper field. The Timekeeper field can optionally be shown on the Fee Entry window for each user via the User file in System Configuration (File | Open | User | Tabs3 Connect Settings | Fee Timekeeper check box).
  • Added a new drop-down button in the Fee List to display fees for other timekeepers.
  • The Tcode field on Fee and Cost entry windows now defaults to the last used tcode.
  • Added the Bill Code field to the Fee and Cost entry windows, allowing users to override the default billable or printable status. This field is only shown for users with Detail Entry Mode access rights in Tabs3.
  • Changes to the Start Time field on the Calendar entry window now automatically adjust the End Time field to preserve the duration, just like in PracticeMaster.

To access the new look and features, update to Version 19!
