Abbreviations

VIDEO:


TimeSolv allows users to create abbreviations for frequently used sentences which can be used later on in the description of time or expense entries. These abbreviations can be used both for the online time entry or with TimeSync. Abbreviations can be created both at a firm level and user level.

  • To create abbreviations at a firm level, select the Settings link under the Account tab.

 

  • Select the Abbreviations tab.

 

  • Select New Abbreviation.

 

  • Type in the Phrase to be abbreviated.

 

  • Type in the Abbreviation.

Note: we recommend you use lower case letters for abbreviations, in case a Matter/Project name is capitalised in the same letters which may confuse a Timekeeper into thinking that abbreviation is in reference to a particular client.

 

  • The Active checkbox allows you to activate/deactivate abbreviated phrases as you wish.

 

 

  • Click Save or Save & New if you wish to continue making some more new abbreviations.

 

The abbreviations that appear at user level not only lists the firm’s abbreviations but also lets timekeepers create specific abbreviations:

  • Select the Staff/Professionals tab under Account.

 

  • Select the Timekeeper you wish to add abbreviations for (example below).

 

  • Select the Abbreviations tab.

 

  • Select New Abbreviation.

 

  • Type in the Phrase to be abbreviated.

 

  • Type in the Abbreviation.

Note: we recommend you use lower case letters for abbreviations, in case a Matter/Project name is capitalised in the same letters which may confuse a Timekeeper into thinking that abbreviation is in reference to a particular client.

 

  • The Active checkbox allows you to activate/deactivate abbreviated phrases as you wish.

 

  • Click Save or Save & New if you wish to continue making some more new abbreviations.

 

  • Hover over paper icon on the time entry form to view a list of abbreviations. The blue circling arrows will implement abbreviations.
