One question we frequently get from our Timeslips users is: "How can I make my Timeslips run faster?"
There are several answers to this question, but one of the first things I check are the Timeslips Performance Settings on each Timeslips workstation. From the Timeslips toolbar, select Settings. Scroll down to the Preference Settings. You will see a list of 5 options. On most Timeslips workstations, you can uncheck all the options.
A common misconception is that the "Microsoft Outlook Link" is required if you want to email Timeslips invoices. Totally untrue. The only reason to check this option is if you want to synchronize your Timeslips clients with your Outlook contacts. Most people find this too cumbersome to be of much value.
The "Accounting Link" should be checked on your Timeslips workstation IF you are integrating your Timeslips with QuickBooks or Sage50 AND you are the one handling the GL Transfers and doing the bookkeeping. For ALL other Timeslips users, this should be unchecked.
The other 3 options are generally only utilized by certain Timeslips users and even then, these are not commonly-used Timeslips options, so you can safely uncheck them on all workstations unless you have a specific reason not to.
This is generally the first step to take in speeding up the Timeslips performance. If you are having Timeslips performanceissues or would like to discuss further, please call or email: (888) 628-5343 x103 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
