At SpringAhead, our phenomenal team of experts designs, builds and supports business software that significantly improves operations from small & medium businesses. About a year ago, our team of experts came together to review the SpringAhead Time + Expense product to see how we could continue to deliver great value to our customers. In discussing our features and reflecting on our experts’ deep knowledge of our customers’ needs, we realized that there was a great demand for a standalone expense solution deeply integrated with Quickbooks.
A year later, we’re excited and proud to introduce you to Tallie, SpringAhead’s expense report automation solution. We’ve worked hard to build the best expense management software solution for small & medium businesses, particularly those who have a need for the deep, bi-directional integration with QuickBooks that SpringAhead is known for.
We recommend you try out a Tallie free trial for your next expense report. Immediately, you will understand why you need to replace your expense reports with Tallie. From its intelligent design to its expert control features, all powered by cutting-edge data science, Tallie will revolutionize your corporate expense tracking.

Each year, we all make resolutions to better ourselves. For SpringAhead, part of our New Year’s resolution is to provide the best data security and data encryption with QuickBooks. Essentially, your security settings will be updated to the newest industry standard.
To accomplish this, the new release requires a new certificate to be created in all desktop versions of QuickBooks and QuickBooks Online accounts. This change only takes a moment and provides numerous benefits.
Remember: To create a new certificate in QuickBooks make sure you’re logged in as the administrator or do the update with your QuickBooks administrator.
Here’s a few answers to questions you may have:
How strong is the new encryption?
The new certificate you will be installing is 2048-bit SSL encryption, which is the best of breed encryption available. For more information, click here
Do I need to do anything?
Only if you are using a desktop version of QuickBooks or QuickBooks Online. Videos and guides for the respective editions are posted below
What do I need to do?
Simply open SpringConnect on your computer and you should be prompted for a new version. Once updated, click Synchronize. You will also need to have your administrator present to create the new certificate. If your’re having any issues installing the update, the direct link for SpringConnect is www.getspringconnect.com

Whom should I contact if I need help?
SpringAhead’s team is here to help! Feel free to shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call at 888-874-1118, ext. 2. If you’d like help with the certificate update, please ensure you have administrator rights or have your administrator present.
Can I wait?
Your existing certificate will remain valid through February 1st. After that date, if you use QuickBooks Online, you will need the new certificate before you can transfer data between QBOE and SpringAhead.

This release brings accessibility, integration and speed to your SpringAhead account. Ever needed a little extra help establishing your default preferences in the My Company area? Now there’s a setup wizard to walk you through the process. Love SpringAhead and have clients or colleagues that need Microsoft Dynamics GP integration? We’re now integrated. All this and more in this release.
Now starting up a new company is easier than ever. Upon logging in, you’ll be prompted to take the Setup Wizard which establishes company-wide settings and sets your default export preferences. Afterwards, it will remain accessible from the data menu if you need to retake the wizard later.
Billables is now Invoices
To better reflect the purpose of this area, the name Billables has been replaced by the name Invoices. Likewise, the entire product has been updated to reflect the updated naming convention. The next time you need to export an invoice out to your preferred accounting system, click Invoices – sounds easy enough, right?
Support for Microsoft Dynamics GP
A major new feature this release is support for Microsoft Dynamics GP. Call us to get started.
New Page Layout Increases Speed
In step with supporting Microsoft Dynamics GP, many of the areas within SpringAhead will now load faster – supporting as much volume as you can throw at it. Previously, SpringAhead would show all of the timesheets and expenses on one page, causing the Review, Invoices and Payables areas to take a longer-than-usual time to load if there was an excessive amount of content. Now these areas are paginated, showing a specified amount of timesheets and expenses per page, yet still allowing you to select all the timesheets and expenses in one click.

Thanksgiving can be a busy time: preparing for family visits, cooking, getting ready for the end of the calendar year- it can all get pretty hectic.
With this release, we’re introducing a great feature: This is a dashboard view which allows you to keep track of time, expenses and approvals right when you login to Virtual Time+Expense.
You should see these new updates when you come back from the holiday weekend.
The New Home Page
In the upper left-hand corner, you now have access to Home page. This area is a fantastic way to keep track of time, expenses and approvals right when you login to Virtual Time+Expense.
For Time Users
Do you submit time? Want to know how much time you’ve submitted for the week? Want to know if that time’s been approved? It’s all here on the Home page.
For Expense Users
The Home page even takes care of Expense submitters. Now you can quickly see what you’ve submitted and its approval status.
If you approve time, you’re covered as well. Here, you can see how many timecards and expenses awaiting your approval along with links to bring you directly to each area.
Aside from the major addition of the Dashboard, a few items have been taken off of your request list and and placed in product.
Daily Timecard Editor Improvement
Now, there’s a more consistent way to edit timesheets. Gone are the down arrow buttons, replaced with the familiar edit buttons on the right-hand side.
Timecard Description Length Increased To 1,000 Characters
The character limit has changed from 250 to 1,000 in this new release.
Now, when you view time reports with details, the hours will be organized by week instead of by day; likewise the Download Report will conform to that style. The CSV Download remains unchanged as daily

Additional Features: Better Commission Reports, Employee ID in Reports and Pause Feature for Project Timers
You asked for a more intuitive way to get commission report percentages and here it is. Now, you no longer have to click Include Details to get commission percentages on reports.
If you rely on CSV files for your payroll system, our downloadable CSV reports now include employee numbers.
If you’re having your employees use project timers to track time, we’ve now made it possible to pause the timer – if you aren’t, our continued upgrades to this feature make now a perfect time to try it!
