The Import Bank Transactions program allows you to import transaction information via a file that you download from your bank or credit card company. File formats supported include the .OFX, .QFX, and .QBO file formats.
During the import process, GLS compares the imported bank account transactions with existing journal entries and deposit slips. If matching transactions are found, they are shown on the Matched tab so they can easily be marked as having cleared the bank. Any imported transactions that cannot be matched are shown on the Unmatched tab, allowing you to easily match them with existing transactions or create new journal entries based on the imported information.
To import bank or credit card transactions
You have now reduced the time it takes to reconcile your bank and credit card accounts.
Note: This process is also available in Trust Accounting Software (TAS).
You can use the Import Invoices function in APS to import data from an ASCII file into the APS Invoice file, provided the file is in the appropriate format and named A3IMPORT.DTA.
To import invoices, open the Import Invoices program (Maintenance | Invoice | Import Invoices) and click OK. The Import Invoices window will display the number of records that are imported, and invalid invoices will be sent to an error list.
For more information on the Import Invoices program, including the required format of the A3IMPORT.DTA file, refer to Knowledge Base Article R11505, “Importing Data into APS.”
Often, the most common source of unbilled costs are the everyday tasks done in your office. Photocopies, faxes, phone calls, and many other tasks can easily be overlooked when entering costs for a client. Simple cost recovery methods can reclaim these expenses as needed. Many manufacturers offer devices that collect information and create an export file, which can be used in other programs such as Tabs3.
The Tabs3 Device Interface takes the export files from most collection devices and converts them into costs that can be posted to Tabs3. Additionally, it allows you to customize import settings so any standard text file can be converted, even if it is not already configured in the conversion program. This means it is very likely that you can import your task information, regardless of the device’s manufacturer.
We offer a wide range of collection device conversion interfaces. To see if the Tabs3 Device Interface will work for you, or to order a license of the Tabs3 Device Interface for your firm, contact your local reseller and consultant, or call our Sales Department at (402) 419-2200. Information about the Tabs3 Device Interface can also be found in our Knowledge Base Article R10737, “Tabs3 Device Interface Product Information,” and in R11684, “Tabs3 Device Interface Instructions.”
