Transactions tab: A consolidated view of all financial records
The iinsight Finance menu shown has been released in a Beta version to allow for further development with client feedback. The latest current version displays 3 tabs:
Using the selection criteria (Business division, Service contract, date ranges...), and pressing GO button, the display will refresh to show only the relevant records.
Each column can be sorted by clicking on the heading, for example, invoices can be sorted by invoice number, case records by claim number etc.
Typing in part of the company name will display a list of possible companies:
The invoices tab displays a subset of the transactions - invoices and payments.
A bulk payment option is available to enable faster payment processing of multiple invoices by following the steps 1-3.
Adding the permission to access the Finance menu is done through the Admin menu - Manage Users, User Access interface.
The Costs tab displays a list of all costs that are both invoiced or uninvoiced and as defined by the settings in the top left.
The costs tab under the Finance Menu allows you to export to Excel as below:
Note: Remember that the Service Contract is linked directly to a Cost.
What are the methods of measuring time when entering costs?
There are two methods of using time in iinsight when entering costs:
1. If you use the colon ( : ) you can specify the exact number of minutes, for example
0:15 equates to 15 minutes
2. If you use a period ( . ) you need to specify the fraction, for example
0.25 equates to 15 minutes or ¼ hour
Refer to the following table for further examples:
Some IINSIGHT users add activities in amounts of 5 or 10 minutes. For example, some insurers require in the service contract that services are provided in amounts of 5 minutes.
Setting up unit rates in a service contract is an easy task. When creating a new Service Contract on the Charges menu or amending an existing Service Contract, the Billable Unit Rate in Minutes can be set as required – Please Note if this rate is left as 0 the default unit rate is automatically set to 6 minutes.
If Units are not specified at the Charges – Service Level Contract level, there will be no “unit” measurement visible in the Activity Cost screen as seen below:
If units are specified in the Charges – Service Level Contract as in the example below
Then you will be able to view the units in the Costs summary. In the example below, as the units are 6 minutes, 2 hours equates to 20 units (120 minutes/6):
To ensure that the user's firewall and other security settings allow the use of iinsight, it is recommended that the iinsight URL be added to Internet Explorer's trusted sites.
1. Open up Internet Explorer and go to Tools... Click on the cog wheel and select internet options.
2. Ensure that the Trusted sites appears with a green tick as below and click on Sites.
3. Add https://aus.iinsightonline.com to the zone... then Close.
Note: for international users, use https://*.iinsightonline.com
Note: IE8 is no longer supported due to Microsoft's support for Windows XP SP3 ending on April 2014.
How Do I Change the Date of an Invoice?
You can change the date of an invoice by going into the Accounts tab of the Case and selecting the Invoice you wish to change, then click on the Details Button as below:
You can then change the date (as per the below screenshot) by clicking on the Date drop down box and selecting the date you wish to change it to:
Then you select Ok and the date is changed and ready for you to reprint – resend.
How do I amend an invoice I have made a mistake on?
If for example, the duration of one of the costs on the invoice was entered incorrectly as 30:00 and needs to be 0:30 please follow the below steps:
If you have already created the Invoice for this cost, the original invoice will need to be deleted first and a new invoice created once the cost is amended - It is highly recommended to Print the Invoice before deleting it.
Please then go to the Costs Tab and Select the Cost you wish to Change as below:
Then you need to select the Edit Tab and Amend the cost that was incorrectly entered as 30 Hours Duration (30:00) to 30 Minute duration (00:30) and then click OK as below:
The Cost is now amended correctly as below:
After the cost has been amended the Invoice can be recreated and printed out.
How do I change a 'Bill To' for a Case?
To change a 'Bill To' for a case please follow the below steps:
You need to go to the Contacts Tab for that Case and select New to add the new contact:
Then when adding the new contact please endure that the ‘Bill To’ box is checked so the new contact now becomes the ‘Bill To’ contact as below:
The 'Bill To' contact is now changed.
How do I create a Case Notes Template?
Useful enhancements to the case notes functionality include:
1) Ability to create case note templates
2) Ability to assign variables (as in the document templates) to a case note template
3) Ability to select these case note templates when entering in an Activity or Item
The templates are initially created by accessing the iinsight Options menu (please see below):
Then select the tab called "Clinical Notes Templates" Tab as shown below:
Select New to create a new template:
The 'Create a New Clinical Note Template' Box will open as below:
Insert your Clinical Note Title and start writing your clinical note (You may also insert an Office Add-On Variable from the drop down list if required) :
You can create your clinical note template as per the below example then select Save:
You can now create another Clinical Note Template by following the same process.
You can then apply these shortcuts to to improve the quality of the documenation and save time when adding similar text to your case notes.
Simply add an Activity or Item and select the Case Note Template you wish to use... In the example below, the user selects "Phone call to client"...
The resulting case note then includes the content text. Users can select multiple Notes Templates and build on these by adding one after the other...
You may experience missing and cut off comments in the comments sections or notes area. This is due to a character limit of 255 characters (including spaces) – this is the maximum characters that are allowable in a text box, when past this limit the rest of the notes or comment will not be displayed.
To work around this limitation for notes longer than 255 characters, use separate notes (i.e, case note part 1 of 1, case note part 2 of 2) or upload a word/pdf document for very large sets of notes.
Some variables only have a 100 characters limit (such as the ‘Assigned To’ variable); this is because it was not anticipated that more than 100 characters would be used in this field.
Remember the Comments Box can be populated in a word doc template using the variable %%COMMENTS%%
Then all comments entered in the Case ‘Comments’ Box will appear in the template word document where the variable was placed.
Invoicing from Case List Accounts tab
In the Case List, Select your case then go to the Accounts tab - here all completed invoices for this case are displayed. Click the Invoice button to begin the invoice wizard.
Generally you can leave this step unchanged for 'standard invoices', however if specifically doing an invoice for a 'single cost that requires immediate invoicing' or a 'milestone cost' then be sure to check the appropriate box:
Click the invoices you don't wish to include and a red line will be drawn through them to indicate that they will be excluded from the items to be invoiced.
If you have a large list and you wont be invoicing most items simply click the Exclude All button then just select the items you wish to invoice.
The last step allows you to change the invoice number (should be automatically applied to invoice but can be changed here), purchase order number, terms and note templates can be added.
You should now be able to see the invoices you've added in the Case List > Accounts tab.
Invoices that have been completed may also be viewed in the Reports menu > Invoices.
Invoicing from QuickLinks
From the Quicklinks menu, selecting the Invoice dropdown begins the 5 step invoice wizard...
The first step displays ALL costs available to be invoiced by the type of cost:
After clicking on next, the second step will display...
The invoice criteria will need to be selected before any of the totals will be displayed. The default billing period displays the earliest uninvoiced cost to the most current.
For Standard invoices, select the following:
Once the criteria have been entered, clicking on Next brings up step 3 where the user can choose to accept all invoices or exclude some invoices and add purchase order numbers if required
To exclude an invoice, simply click on the selected invoice and it will display a red line through it to indicate it will be excluded.
Add any terms and invoice notes (both of these options can be edited via the Options, Common lists interface). Then click on Complete to produce the invoices.
Once the invoices are produced, they can be emailed as PDF's. Note that the PDF format provides best format of all the presented options available at the top of the screen. If the email/print options do not appear, the invoices can be reproduced via the Invoices Report.
Printing an Invoice without shading
If exporting the invoice to PDF the invoice shaded areas will appear, in some cases you may not want these to appear for scanning purposes.
To disable the shaded areas simply select the 'Print' option rather than export to PDF to print the document directly through the printer, the document will then be clear of the shaded areas.
Documents with shading look like this (accessed through PDF export):
Documents without shading look like this (accessed through Print button):
Removing the printer heading and footer
The when using the Print option to print an invoice directly, the printer will have its own heading and footer for that document:
This can be removed by unchecking the Headers and footers under the options section to the left:
* Margins can also be customized here using the 'Margins' option.
Go to the Accounts Tab of a case that has an Invoice prepared as below:

The system has the ability for contractor to get paid based on the work that they do for an organisation.
Many clients pay contractors when they send an invoice for the services they have completed and a printed contractor report from IINSIGHT (case notes section )
As a Contractor (with contractor permissions) they have the ability to select the specific billings they are going to invoice for and this is what is printed in the contractor report. Once selected they cannot be re-selected so contractors cannot bill for the same service twice.:
Accounts (with Accountant permissions) then login and can see all of the costs that a contractor has selected and the accountant marks these costs as now having been paid to the contractor so accountants cannot pay a contractor for the same service twice) :
Therefore you can not have both of these permissions assigned to one user for this reason, the system will only allow you to have one of these permissions assigned only.
