Time Matters 15.2 Available Now!

For all of my Time Matters users, it is that time of year when we consider upgrading to the latest and greatest version of Time Matters.  If you have a Time Matters or Billing Matters Annual Maintenance Plan (AMP), and you have not upgraded yet, you should call me to get your upgrade scheduled and to get your usage evaluation taken care of.  If you do not have an AMP, please call me to arrange to re-instate the AMP and evaluate your current installation of Time Matters prior to performing the upgrade.

New features in Time Matters 15.2 include several routine bug fixes and some new features:

Adjustable Font Sizes

With Time Matters 15, users can now increase the text font size used in certain high usage areas of the product from a single location in User Level Setup.  Each user can choose whether the default font size will be Regular (current 8 pt. font) or Large(12 pt. font).  This setting alleviates the need to change the font size in multiple areas.  This option applies to:

  • Main and supporting record type forms and lists, including the User Defined record types
  • Calendar
  • Personal Inbox
  • Transaction form and list

Usability Improvements

To ease the setup time when creating settings similar to existing ones, a "Copy" button has been added to the setup for security profiles, power views and quick tabs.  Using this button copies the settings for the current item into a new item with a definable name.  With quick tabs, a Program Level quick tab can be copied to create a User Level quick tab.

Performance Improvements

Time Matters 15 no longer uses DDE to create merge documents or display alarms.  This change in technology improves the stability and reliability of these features.  Improvements were also made to increase the speed when saving new contacts and matters and updating existing ones with many related records.

LexisNexis Gateway

Time Matters 15 brings the capability to easily connect with a growing portfolio of Time Matters partners with LexisNexis Gateway.  The LexisNexis Gateway connector is installed separately, at no cost, and is currently available for all US customer who have Billing Matters or who have Time Matters Basic Billing enabled in their software.  Through these partners, the capabilities of time and matter management can expand - all integrated with Time Matters 15.  LexisNexis Gateway brings access to popular applications and third-party software options to expand the functionality of Time Matters.

  • Windows® 10
  • Microsoft® Office 2016 Click to Run
