Version 3.6 Release Notes

In this Smokeball Ver. 3.6 release, there are 31 bug fixes, 7 refinements, and 2 new features.  A complete list of the release items is listed at the end of this document.  Many of the bug fixes and refinements may not be apparent to the user. 

 

 

Highlights

Significant changes in Ver. 3.6 have been made to our email tracking and time calculations to benefit our Time Scribe feature. 

 

In the past, anytime a user associated an email to a matter, it was reflected in Activity Intelligence as an activity with a minimum time entry of 6 minutes.  Now, an email associated to the matter will be reflected in Activity Intelligence if it is (1) associated to the matter, and (2) reviewed for at least 10 seconds.  Smokeball will wait for 10 minutes before adding the email activity to activity intelligence in case the user re-reviews the email after the initial association and review.

 

Additionally, you will be able to see a list of emails that are recorded as an activity in Activity Intelligence.  The new Email Activity window displays when the email was created or review, subject, to, from, activity, time recorded for the activity, and the billable time.  The minimum billable time has been reduced to 1 minute from 6 minutes.  As you review the billable time, you can change the total billable time.

In your Time Scribe entry in the Time and Expenses tab, you are now able to edit and recalculate the time spent on activities.  You no longer need to manually change the time duration in the Description field or the Hours field.  Click on the Recalculate option to have Smokeball automatically calculate it again.
