What a Migration Specialist Should Know

about 

Time Slips

Time Slips is a:

Desktop-Based Application


This means Time Slips typically runs as desktop software within the firm's office on employee PCs, however, some firms may use an IT provider that hosts Time Slips on a remote server in a remote datacenter. In this scenario, firm members may RDP, TeamViewer, RemoteApp, or Screen Connect to a remote PC where they access Time Slips. In this scenario, some people may say that Time Slips runs 'in the cloud', however, it is really just a desktop application running on someone else's equipment.

Database Connections

Time Slips may use any of the following database backends:

Borland DB

Universal Migrator will attempt to determine whether a name looks like a person's name or a company name. The Migration Specialist and the Firm Administrator should review this and make any tweaks if necessary.
