Here is a quick little Tabs3 tip. I probably should have known this but, for some reason, I don’t think it has ever come up. Thanks to Bruce Dubin from my team who tracked this feature down.
When creating a fee entry in Tabs3, you can create “statement comment” text. You enter statement comment mode by selecting Ctrl-H on your keyboard or by highlighting the text you want to make a comment, then selecting Ctrl-H or right-clicking.
Statement comment text appears as red text on the fee entry and as strikethrough on Detailed Work-in-Process Report but does not appear at all on the statement. If you run WIP Reports as pre-bills, it is very useful for reminders about an entry or for an associate to add a comment for a reviewing partner. In our case, we use it for comments related to how we resolved a tech issue or why something took as long as it did.tabs3
