General Questions


What are TimeNet's system requirements?

TimeNet 4 will run on any Mac with OS X 10.7 or later. TimeNet 3.9 is still available and will run on any Mac with OS X 10.4 or later.

Is TimeNet a stand-alone application?

Yes. TimeNet runs locally on your Mac, and all data is stored locally on your Mac (or your own server).

How does TimeNet's networking work?

TimeNet can operate in a networked environment by accessing its database off of a Mac file server, a shared folder, or Dropbox for cloud syncing.

TimeNet does not need to be installed on the server computer, and there is no server license to buy. Simply tell TimeNet to work on a network, select the location for its database, and all copies of TimeNet will be automatically synced.

For access to your TimeNet database from any geographic location, TimeNet is completely compatible with Dropbox.

What backup systems is TimeNet compatible with?

TimeNet is compatible with Time Machine, and most other 3rd party automatic backup solutions. Below is a list of backup programs with known issues:

  1. Carbonite
  2. Intego Backup and Intego Virus Barrier
  3. Crash Plan

Does TimeNet have a built-in backup feature?

TimeNet automatically backs up its database. TimeNet backups are time and date stamped and stored locally on your computer. If you are running TimeNet in a networked environment, each computer running TimeNet will save its own redundant backups.

Is TimeNet a one-time fee?

Yes, TimeNet is a one-time fee. We do not charge monthly, and you'll get free updates for any point release. When major updates are released (for example from 4.0 to 5.0), we may charge a small fee to upgrade.




Questions About Features


Can I control how my invoices look?

Yes, TimeNet uses a completely customizable invoice template system. You can edit any existing template, or create your own from scratch.

Does TimeNet have spell checking built in?

Yes, TimeNet has full spell checking built in — any fields where data can be entered will show misspelled words by highlighting them in red.

Can I import my data from my previous billing system into TimeNet?

We cannot directly read the databases of most billing systems, but if your old billing application has an option to export its data (into text, csv, excel, etc.) then we can most likely import it into TimeNet. There is a small fee for the import, and it can vary depending on how much data needs to be imported.

Can I bill my clients for flat fees?

Yes, TimeNet allows you to set any task to an hourly rate, or a flat fee rate.

Is there an iPhone or iPad version of TimeNet?

A TimeNet mobile app for both iPhone and iPad is in development.

Can I use TimeNet for scheduling?

TimeNet does not have a scheduling feature. It does, however, integrate with Apple's Calendar app, allowing you to schedule meetings and other events for users through your shared calendars, and then import events and tasks from the calendar instantly into TimeNet to bill the client for them.

Can TimeNet integrate with QuickBooks?

TimeNet does not have direct integration with QuickBooks, however any TimeNet report can be easily copy-pasted or exported into QuickBooks.

Can TimeNet export my data to a spreadsheet?

Yes, TimeNet can export any single project, a single client (all projects), or your entire database (all clients & projects) to a spreadsheet file.
