Flat fee billing 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.
Flat fee is a new billing entry type that will allow users to add fees that are not time-dependent. The flat fee item is a way for users to add billing entries like a monthly retainer, which are neither an expense nor a time entry.
Flat Fee Entry
The flat fee item is similar to the expense item, with fields for quantity and price per unit.
Flat fee appears as a third section in the “Billing Entries” tab of the project’s billing section and in invoices. You will be able to create flat fee entries and add them to invoices just as you would for time entries and expenses.
The default invoice template in the Billing Setup “Invoices” tab will be updated to a new template that includes flat fee entries. A new “Flat Fee” column will be added to the “Customized Billing Items” report.
Collapse and Expand Entries
The invoice modal and the project’s billing entries have a card view, where each entry time can be collapsed and expanded.
The ability to collapse and expand each billing entry type will allow users to more easily scroll through their billing entries.
