Work with reports

All Jobs & Billing reports have search filter options that you can use to narrow report results, for example by date, partner, and more. Some reports have additional tabs where you will find more detailed information.

If you have set up custom groups and filters for your firm, you can also filter the report by job, user or contact-related firm groups, for example by job office. Click the drop-down arrow to display the list of options. You can then use the check boxes to select a number of items to report on. This gives you flexibility around reporting, and will you save time as you do not need to print off separate reports.

Although the reports are designed for online viewing and use, you can print them or export them to Microsoft Excel for further analysis. Most reports have a report toolbar that enables you to perform such actions.

What you can do (from left to right):

  • Print a PDF version of the report on the screen.
  • Go to the first page in the report.
  • Go to the previous page in the report.
  • Type the number of the page you want to view.
  • Go to the next page in the report.
  • Go to the last page in the report.
  • Export the report to Excel for further analysis.
  • Adjust the viewing size of the report.

Many reports also provide the ability to drill-down for more details by clicking a particular row in the report - look out for the blue links.
