Billing in Outlook is part of the billing updates. All billing updates are available to users on an opt-in basis. Contact your Filevine representative to learn more.
Users of the Outlook Add-in can create billing time entries from the add-in. This feature enables users to easily enter time entries for email-related work.
Adding a Time Entry
In the Filevine Add-in in Outlook, choose a project, and then click on Billing below the project name. A time entry will be associated with the chosen project.
In the billing screen, fill out the fields just as you would for a time entry in Filevine.
- enter a time in hours, out to two decimal places (for example, an entry of 0.1 would equal 6 minutes)
- choose LEDES codes from the dropdowns,
- add a description of the time entry.
In the Project
When you have filled out the time entry fields to yoursatisfaction, click Save. The time entry is added to the project’s Billing section. If the project does not have a Billing section, and a Billing section is added, the timer entries will appear in the Billing section at that time.
Once the time entry has been added to the project, it can be edited just as other time entries can.
