Transactions Report

Transactions Report Overview

The Client Transactions Report gives you the ability to generate a list of all outstanding transactions via a variety of different criteria and fields contained within your SapphireOne Client data profiles. A large range of different report types necessary for business are available within the Transactions function that can be easily selected by the user to fit their needs.

Transactions Reports Options

When selecting the Transactions Report, you are presented with the above print dialog pop-up enabling the selection of items required in the report. The user can select from the Print Destination, Report Type and Report Sort Order drop-down menus to determine their preferred Transactions Report layout. Reports are created using a combination of the selected metrics. The user also has the option to create custom reports using SapphireOne Quick Reports or Custom Reports. 

SapphireOne’s implementation of both Dictation (MacOS) and Speech to Text (Windows) is a game changer for data entry. Any data entry field you can type into using a keyboard can use this feature.

You can also use this functionality on all inquiry screens within SapphireOne. For example, the user is in a Contact within a Client. They may have made a phone call to that particular client using the Softphone technology. Consequently, this will automatically date and time stamp both the contact and the phone number you called.

As soon as the call is completed, the user has the ability to use Speech to Text (Windows) or Dictation (MacOS). They can dictate into the memo field of the CRM contact, adding as much description as they require.

Dictation and Speech to Text Procedure

This functionality applies across every single Data Entry screen. For example, the SapphireOne user is entering a Vendor Invoice (VI). Additionally, you may want to add a memo within the Vendor Invoice (VI). The user can utilise the tool and simply dictate the memo.

Another example is if the user wants to add additional lines to the General Ledger account, within each General Ledger account. When the user is completing data entry using a General Ledger, there’s always a unique memo field for each GL account line. The user can then utilise this feature to quickly add the information they need to add. Alternatively, you may have an interview with an employee. After the interview process is completed, the user can then make notes about the employee.

Speech to Text or Dictation is an extremely powerful tool. It is something that we at SapphireOne, as well as our clients, utilise daily. It is a massive timesaver.
