  • Time Tracking in the Money module: In the Money module that is the work space of the Accountant, there is a possibility to Edit a Time Log. An Accountant would be mostly interested in specifying the Status for billing. This will be discussed in later bullets.

    A Time Log form has important fields such as:
    • User:  By default it is the Logged in App4Legal User. However, the User can be changed such that a Time Log can be added on behalf of another user.
    • CaseMatter/Task: The Case matter and/or Task that the Time is logged on. If a Case matter is chosechosen, then the look up of Tasks will only check Tasks that are related to the Casematter.
    • Billable/Internal: If the Time Log is Billable, then it will appear in the Invoicing module. If Billable is chosen, the system will fetch the client at the matter level. If there is no Client at the matter level, then the client inserted at the Time Log shall be injected into the matter automatically.
    • Time TypeSpent on: A defined list that is managed from the Admin & Setup or on the fly.
    • Date
    • Eff. Effort: Time logged in hours. If using the Manage Timer, the system will automatically calculate the Time in hours.
    • Comments: Description of the Time Log. Billable/Internal: If the Time Log is Billable, then it will appear in the Invoicing module.

    Add Configurations on the fly

    All drop-down lists in App4Legal are configurable through the Admin & Setup. Luckily, some configurations can be configured on the fly. For instance, in the Log Time form, a user is adding data and wants to have a new Time Type swiftly. There is a blue plus sign that can assist the user to add a new value to the Time Type drop-down list on the fly.
