This help topic explains how to use Total Office Manager’s Check Web For Update utility for our on-premise clients. If you are a hosted client, updates are performed automatically on your behalf.


This utility makes it possible to quickly and easily know that you have the latest enhancements and service updates to your Total Office Manager software. With a few clicks, this utility will check our website for updates by comparing your version with the latest version available.

Form Access

  • From the main menu, click Help | Check For Enhancements or

All users must be logged out of Total Office Manager prior to the update being performed.
