Reminder:  Year End Backups

Timeslips and QuickBooks

 Happy New Year!  Another year has passed which is why I am reminding you to save a special year-end backup.

2013 been a good year for us at TSR Consulting Services, Inc.  We continue to support Timeslips, Time Matters and QuickBooks for law firms and other service businesses.  The link between Timeslips and QuickBooks is significantly improved this year and many of our clients find it much easier and efficient than prior versions.

Software product changes are inevitable.  I know that Sage is already working on Timeslips 2015 and Time Matters’ latest release, Time Matters 13 is already available for download.  I suggest waiting until after the first service release, but for those who don’t want to wait, the reports have been very positive.  I will keep you apprised of announcements and special offers as soon as they are announced.

I wish you and your families a happy, healthy and prosperous 2014.  And, as always, please feel free to contact us for assistance with year-end procedures, reports, or any other software related requests.  We also welcome your referrals.

Timeslips Database and Bill Images

It is recommended that firms maintain a special year-end backup of Timeslips with a unique file name (TS2013.bku).  Save the file in a safe place (with other year-end backups) so that if you ever need a snapshot of the year end, it is easy to restore.

Bill image backups allow you to save a pdf copy of every bill mailed during the year in a single file.  Timeslips 2013 and newer will store each bill in a separate client folder if desired.  For more information, check out our website.  Click here for a detailed description of backup procedures and options.  Our website has several blog posts and support articles about backing up and other tricks and tips for Timeslips.  Visit us

QuickBooks Database

QuickBooks can be configured to automatically back up your data regularly, but it deletes older backups.  Occasionally, a firm will want to view the QuickBooks file as it was at the end of the year.  For that reason, it is helpful to save a year-end backup in a separate folder.

Year-end backups can be run on the last day of the year, or early in January.
