The Smokeball team have been hard at work developing an array of fantastic new features to improve the user experience for our clients.
Here are some of the new functionality highlights we released in the last month that we are excited to share:
We have now extended our new quick print option in v6.4 to allow users to select multiple documents from the file list, right click and select ‘Print’ from the menu.
It is so important to ensure that you keep your machine up to date with all the latest core software. We want to make this easier for you by silently installing the latest Smokeball versions when they are released to clients. The only caveat is that you must ensure that you close down Smokeball and Office applications regularly. When these applications are not running, we can update your Smokeball software automatically when your machine is not in use and without any delays to your working day.
Automated PDF Improvements
We have added some fantastic new additions to our automated PDF documents including the ability to shrink text to fit into a field; add text annotations to a PDF and ability to insert signature images.
Trust Balance Improvements
We have made a significant improvement to Smokeball Billing when using trust monies to make payments on matters. You no longer need to specify the contact when using the trust funds previously receipted against a matter. You can now simply use the matter trust balance as a single value saving you valuable time when entering trust payments.
End of Month Billing Reports
As per the Law Society trust compliance rules we have introduced an end of month reporting feature. This report will execute and include all the reports listed below and include the compliance required page numbering that follows on from previous months and by each individual report. Reports; Receipts Cash Book; Payments Cash Book; Journal Transfers; Trial Balance; Audit Log; Bank Reconciliation Statement.
Consecutive numbering - Trust
We have introduced consecutive numbering for Transfer of Funds (Journals) and Trust Payments alike receipt numbering as per Law Society compliance guidelines. Simply navigate to the firm settings in Smokeball Billing to configure.
As always, the recent releases also include many small improvements and bug fixes. We have even more great improvements coming soon too, so please keep an eye out for updates.
