What’s Inside the Juris Toolbox
The Activity Code Reassignment Utility updates the Activity Code references from one Activity Code to a different Activity Code with an option to delete the From Activity Code.
The Bill Copy Settings Utility allows the user to update each of the bill copy settings for matters based on client, billing timekeeper, or originating timekeeper. Utility also contains a pre-report of client and/or matters to be changed.
The Delete Zero Batch Utility allows the user to delete records that have a zero-batch count based on the type of transaction. Utility also contains a pre-report of client and/or matters to be changed.
The Fee Schedule Copy Utility allows the user to create a new fee schedule based on an existing one. This means the tool creates a new fee schedule and copies the fee schedule information from Timekeepers, Personnel Types, and Task Codes.
The Fee Schedule Reassignment utility allows the user to change the fee schedule for matters and/or clients in a bulk manner. Specific instructions are below with an option to delete the From Fee Schedule.
The Hide Old Batches by Date utility allows the user to hide records that have a batch postdate older than a selected date based on the selected criteria.
The Matter Closer Utility allows the user to close multiple matters based on last activity date or number of days since activity. Additional selection parameters by client, billing timekeeper, and/or practice class are included. Matters can also be excluded by date opened, client, and/or billing timekeeper. The Matter Close Utility uses Juris constraints. Utility also contains a pre– and post-report of client and/or matters to be changed.
Update the payer line after posting without having to reverse the original cash receipt and reenter with the correct payer information. Change the payer line in cash receipt batch, based on the batch and record number (or all records in a batch).
The Practice Class Reassignment Utility allows the user to change the practice class for client and/or matters with the option to choose specific billing timekeepers. Includes option to delete the From Practice Class code once it has been reassigned. Utility also contains a pre- and post-report of client and/or matters to be changed, with an option to delete the From Practice Class.
The Reset UDF Utility removes User Defined Field definitions for timekeepers, clients, matters, and vendors. Once you run this tool you can reassign your UDF fields, but the same field names CANNOT be used for the same type. For example, if you have a MatterUDF field named “MatterType” and you run the tool, you can no longer name any MatterUDF fields “MatterType”.
The Split Management Utility allows the user to remove splits, modify splits, add new splits, or copy splits from a master matter to multiple matters.
This utility replaces one task code with another in all Juris Tables, so the original code can be deleted. A supplemental report with last activity date is included.
The Timekeeper Reassignment Utility with Note Cards allows the user to change billing, originating, and responsible timekeepers for clients and/or matters with an option to add Note Cards to reflect the changes. Utility also contains a pre- and post-report of client and/or matters to be changed.
The Undo Bank Rec Utility allows the user to undo a Bank Accounts Last Bank Reconciliation.
The Vendor Discount Account Update Utility allows the user to update the existing discount general ledger (GL) account for all vendors with the same original value to a new GL account based on the parameter selections.
The Vendor Inactivate Utility allows the user to inactivate vendors based on date or by selecting the vendors from a list. This tool also allows the user to select which vendors receive a 1099 by vendor group and assign those vendors a 1099 type.
The Vendor Merge Utility allows you to pick two vendors and merge them together, including vouchers, batches, checks, notes, distributions, and demographic data.
The Voucher Import Utility imports data output files without having to manually input vouchers when utilizing third-party expense tracking companies such as Chrome River or Concur. Import multiple vouchers through a standard .csv or Microsoft® Excel® file.
Customers with service plans may use their service plan hours to purchase individual utilities. They are also available a la carte to all other clients.
