Term 'Fees Collected Amount' on Reports

The term 'Fees Collected Amount' on Reports means:

  • The total amount of fees collected is the amount collected after expenses, taxes, interest, adjustments, discounts, and commission holdback are subtracted.
  • Payments marked with the “written off” type are not included in the total amount of fees collected.
  • Additionally, the entries that have been “deleted” (written down) during the invoice edit process are also not counted.

Filter Reports by Originating Professional

Users can filter multiple report types by Originating Professionals.

Please see this article for information on where to specify Originating Professionals for Matters.

Here’s a list of reports that can be filtered by Originating Professionals:

  • Invoices and WIP

How to apply groups to Professionals and apply those groups to reports
