Deleting a Client

Deleting a client will permanently remove it from the Time file including all related transactions, relationships between groups, contacts, and projects, and from reports and documents.

Note: For Time users with Cloud Integration enabled, this operation must be performed in Time. Any changes will reflect on CaseWare Cloud upon the next successful merge. See more...

  • If the client has work in process or accounts receivable transactions in the current year, then you cannot delete this client.

 With Protection activated, you require the following right in the file

  • Clients: Create/Delete under the Setup: Clients category

If Cloud Integration is enabled,

  • You must be Online to perform this operation. When you are Offline, this operation is disabled.

  • Your account on Cloud must be assigned a role that grants Delete permission on the Entity object.
  1. Access the Clients dialog from the menu Setup | Clients.

    Note: An error message appears if this client has transactions processed for the current year. See Notes below.
