Spotlight: Transaction File List and Task Code Billing Report

August 2021    Tags: , , , , ,

If you need to report on fees, costs, or payments, the Transaction File List or Task Code Billing Report is your answer. Both reports have great flexibility and options. The Transaction File List and Task Code Billing Report have similar options. The Task Code Billing Report includes task based billing clients only. However, the Transaction File List includes both task based transactions and non-task based transactions.

The following are examples of when you may want to run a Transaction File List or Task Based Billing Report:

  • The court needs a copy of all work done on a case thus far. Run the report for only the one client, for fees only, and select both Work-In-Process and Archived.
  • The case is closed and you want a list of all costs that were billed. Run the report for only the one client, for costs only, and select Archived.
  • You want a list of all billed transactions using a particular transaction code or task code for the current quarter. Run the report for the desired transaction code or task code, enter the desired date range, and select Archived.
  • You need to find a payment that was entered for the wrong client. Run the report for payments only, select the desired date range, and then use the Search function in the Preview window to look for the payment amount.
  • You want a list of everything that was billed last month by a particular timekeeper. Run the report for the one fee timekeeper, enter the desired date range, select Archived, and use a Date Selection of Statement.
