Before FormMaster, you probably had to input the same data into various forms and programs.
Now you can import and export data between T-slips and other programs such as spreadsheets. You’ll save time and reduce the chance of costly errors like typos.

For forms where calculations are based on information entered in another form, FormMaster quickly cross-references the correct field in the source form. There’s no need to flip back and forth between forms and enter the same data twice.And next year, your work is a little easier. Data in FormMaster are retained year to year — there’s no need to re-key. Plus, now documents and notes are rolled forward year to year as well, so spreadsheets or simple reminders are accessible with the appropriate form.
