5.0 Release Notes

Modified on Fri, 26 May 2023 at 04:25 AM

Important Notes

This release contains better support for multiple cash accounts. The Trust to Office screen, as well as the Trust Payment screen, now calculate the available balance in the selected cash account. 

It is important to note however, that historical transactions may be affected. Previously the system used the Unallocated Receipts account in the reconciliation process. When calculating the available trust balance on a matter, the system is not able to add the entries that were recorded under the Unallocated Receipts account.


5.0.2002.2014 - Revision Three

Revision Three includes enhancements to assist firms with trust audits, additional default descriptions have been included in the matter trust ledgers for the following transaction type:

  • Trust Matter to Matter transfers:
    Previously, when performing a matter to matter transfer there was no default description. We have added a new default description which includes where the funds have been transferred from and where they are being transferred to.

    The purpose\reason for the funds transfer must be manually entered into the memo description field.

    New Description Format:
    “Transfer from (source matter number) to (destination matter number) (memo)”

  • Trust Payments and Receipt reversals:
    Previously, when performing a reversal of a trust receipt or a trust payment, the original receipt number did not appear on the reversal entry. The original receipt/payment number has been included on the reversal transfer to assist with reconciliations to the original entry.

    New Description Format:
    “Reversal: (Journal Reference of the original transaction) (Description of the original ledger entry) (Cheque Number or EFT Sequence and Reference number, if applicable) (Reason for the reversal)”

This release also addresses performance related issue of Matter summary report and temp folder filling up on new Email. We also have fixed the Aged WIP report showing negative number when invoices are fully written down and reversed.

5.0.2002.418 - Revision Two

A lot of system stability improvements have gone into Revision Two. This includes memory optimisation on the user's client and the application server. There has been a system wide improvement to the clean up of temporary files building up, and also reducing the size of data transmitted from the server in queries.

We have made changes to ensure that all pop-up and pop-out windows come to the front of the screen. Some of these hidden screens contributed to the application appearing to freeze in version 4.4. 

Further changes have also been made to the Outlook add-ins. The add-ins would previously monitor all inboxes (including all shared), and this had an impact on performance with duplicate checking. The add-ins will now only automatically file the inbox of the default one selected in Outlook.
