Remember to configure the Account settings before you start creating accounts in Taimer.

Permissions: Admin / Accounts access

Before you start adding or creating accounts in Taimer, you need to enable the Account Settings. You can define account types, account groups, enterprise groups and extra fields for accounts. Besides these, you can also define general visibility and functional settings or define if you want to use manual account numbering.

Account list management settings

This section is valid only for multi-company ERP. Please notice that settings are common for all companies, and settings can be set only by an admin user who has access for all companies.

When needed, you can define account list visibility settings between companies either so that accounts are visible for all or limit visibility only for your own company.

  • Allow all users to see the customer listing of other companies' accounts and their basic information

  • Prevent a user from seeing another company's account information; account manager, team, account group, and tags.

  • Share account structure for all companies

  • Share addresses with every company

You can categorize your accounts into partners, customers, prospects, sub-contractors, new business, etc. for easy segmentation and reporting purposes. Default account type is added by default for an account when the account is created.

Extra fields for account details

If normal account fields are not enough to keep track of your accounts' information, you can define more fields for account details.
