Alerts and notices

If you want to enter time and expenses remotely on your laptop or on another computer away from the office, you will need to perform a desktop installation of Practice CS on that computer and enable Remote Entry.

  2. When prompted to enable Remote Entry, mark the option to do so and click Next. If you do not have SQL Server 2014 Express Edition (or later) installed on your computer, you will be prompted to install it.
  3. Click the Install a new instance of Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Express Edition option, then click Next to continue the installation.
