Time Matters / Billing Matters 16.0 has two issues with the Send to Billing feature that can cost you real money if you don't catch the errors and adjust for them. TM15.1 and TM15.1.1 have the same issues.
This tip explains how to get the Time Matters PDF feature working again. After upgrading to Windows 10, you may find that Time Matters can no longer create PDF versions of reports, documents and, if you use Billing Matters, invoices that can be reprinted or emailed.
In Time Matters/Billing Matters 14 and 14.1, when you use the option to send a Billing Matters invoice via Email using default text for the Email message, the text loses all carriage returns. Also, only the first Email in a batch of selected Matters is related to a Contacts and a Matter.
My work-around is to avoid the option for a Default Email Message and instead complete each billing Email, one at a time, using a Formattable Clipboard. Billing Matters will generate all the billing Emails with a Subject (set in Billing Preferences on the Accounts Receivable tab) and a blank body. Opening each Email and applying a Formattable Clipboard does three things: (1) Fills in the body of the Email with carriage returns, and (2) Lets you manually relates the Email to the Contact and Matter; and (3) Allows the automatic use of the client's First Name via a linked field in the Formattable Clipboard.
E-mails can build up in your Time Matters Personal Inbox in the Sent folder and slow down your Personal Inbox. This advanced tip gives you a way to rapidly remove Sent e-mails from your Personal Inbox.
