Remote Entry overview

Show expandable text

Practice CS includes a Remote Entry feature that enables you to enter time and expenses on your laptop when you are away from the office, and transmit those entries back to the office over the internet.

To take advantage of Remote Entry, you must allow Remote Entry to be enabled for your staff. This should be done during the installation of a new version of the application or an update to the database server, but can be done at any time.

Your staff will have the option to enable Remote Entry on their computers during the desktop installation.

Note: Remote Entry can also be used by a remote employee who is rarely, if ever, in the office. In such a case, the employee would install the full version of Practice CS and import a Remote Entry data file sent by you via email or other means. For more information, see Exporting remote entry data and Importing remote entry data.
