There are three different dashboards and an organization timeline to help you keep track of how time is spent on matters and grants:

Personal Dashboard:

This dashboard shows a high-level overview of how you are spending your time in correlation to grants and matters. You can find this dashboard by selecting Dashboard in the left navigation menu. This dashboard includes the following:

  • Tasks Due Today: This highlights any priority tasks for today.
  • Calendar Events: This shows events that you have scheduled for today.
  • Time allocation: This section shows your time entries for the specified timeframe. You can filter by time in hours and time as a percentage.
  • Export CSV: This lets you export a CSV file of your filtered date, including start date, end date, user, grant name, time in hours, and time as a percentage.

Organization Dashboard:

This dashboard shows a high-level overview of how organization members are spending time in correlation to grants and matters. You can find this dashboard by selecting Dashboard in the left navigation menu. This dashboard includes the following:

  • Time allocation: This section shows time entries for the specified timeframe across firm users. You can filter by time and date, user, time in hours, and time as a percentage
  • Export CSV: This lets you export a CSV file of your filtered date, including start date, end date, user, grant name, time in hours, and time as a percentage.
Note: Only users with administrator permissions can view this dashboard.

Organization Feed:

Matter Dashboard:

When you add a grant to a matter, that matter's dashboard will show a new section for grants and associated time and expense activities and the grants that you selected for case reporting. This dashboard will also show matter form details from when the matter was created, custom fields, the client on the matter and related contacts, and a timeline of activity on the matter. You can find this dashboard by going to a matter.
