A new update is ready. To download this update, and any prior updates, just click Help (with TOTAL open), and the click Check for Updates.

It includes highly-requested improvements to QuickLists and added a new AutoCorrect feature, which will help you type your reports faster and reduce embarrassing typos.

Expanded QuickLists library cuts typing time dramatically

Managing your QuickLists common responses is easier than ever with a new QuickLists toolbar. In just one click, add, delete, or reorder your QuickLists. You can also clone and edit a la mode stock text as you see fit, which saves time up front. Plus, you get complete control of which QuickLists are available using the drop‑down on the Show menu. From there, you'll be able to:

  1. See all of your QuickLists items, even ones from other fields.
  2. See all QuickLists items from every user in your office and from every field.
  3. (Default) See the QuickLists you’ve created specifically for that field.
  4. See every user’s QuickLists specifically for that field.

But the Show menu is just the start. Learn more here about new QuickLists features.

Avoid embarrassing spelling mistakes and create sentence shortcuts

With our new AutoCorrect feature, you can avoid typos to make sure your reports are accurate and professional every time. Words that you often misspell can even be added to AutoCorrect to be changed instantly. Along with standard spellcheck suggestions, you can create text shortcuts (up to 255 characters) like using "prk" for "the park is located".

Of course we've also added a host of fixes and new features with this update. Most notably:

  • Net and gross adjustment fields are now excluded from global rounding changes.
  • The zoom feature in maps is more predictable and you can use it in more ways.
  • Get instant access to your TOTAL for Mobile photos in TOTAL’s QuickPix Database.
  • Quicker load times to move you through your report faster than ever.

For the complete list of improvements, take a look at the detailed release notes below. And, as always, thanks again for giving us your thoughts via the Feedback feature inside TOTAL. We read them every day and we can track them much better than standard e‑mails.
