  4. Financial Data Overview


The Financial Dashboard shows an aggregated financial view of the whole firm based on different criteria like the Firm’s top revenue-generating clients, top debtors with their aging, the frequently used collection method used by the clients, and many more.

The information on the Dashboard is presented in three different sections: 

  • Metrics Bar – Presents users with an overview of the Financials in the form of metrics.
  • Graphical Charts – Show a segregated view of the data based on different criteria.
  • Data Table – This shows a simple, summarized view of the data in a tabular form against each Client-Matter.



To view the Firm Financial Dashboard, navigate to Dashboard>Dashboard>Financial tab. 

The Date Range field allows users to filter data based on the selected period or provide a custom date range to view data between specific dates. Similarly, Client and Matter filters further drill down and track the financial performance specific to the selected Client/Matter.

1. DateRange


Financial Metrics 

The Metrics bar gives the users a quick view of the Firm’s Financials for the selection made from the ‘Date Range’ dropdown. Each metric is briefly described in the tooltip when users hover their mouse cursor over the ‘i’ icon next to the titles.

2. Metrics

Hovering the cursor over the amount brings up the tooltip with the breakdown of the amount or the calculation used to get to that amount.

The Worked, Billed, Collected, and AR metrics have increase/decrease indicators to show the year-to-year (YoY) variance as a percentage. Except for AR, the increase in rate is indicated by a green, upwards-facing arrow, while the decrease is shown as a red arrow. 

The Metrics bar shows an overview of the following for the selected period: 

– Worked
– Billed 
– Receipts
– Allocated 

– AR 
– Write-offs 
– Credit Memo
– Adjustments
– Discounts
– Interest
– Trust Deposits 



Graphical Charts 

Below the ‘Metrics‘ are the graphical Charts with detailed data. Each chart has an information icon that briefly explains what the chart is about when users hover over it.  These charts can be dragged and dropped to have them displayed according to the user’s preferences.

Clicking on the Add Charts button on the top left of the first chart brings up the “Add Charts” window. Users can search for charts and use the “Add” button to add the Charts. To remove a chart, click on the gear icon on the respective chart.

If the chart has a hand icon, it indicates that drilled-down information is available for the chart, and users can click on the chart’s bar to view the details. 

To remove a chart, click the gear icon on the respective chart and then click on the “Remove” button.

The image below shows how the charts can be added and repositioned by drag-and-drop feature.


The Dashboards also saves user preferences so that when the user returns or uses a different browser/computer, their last selections are shown as persisted. The implementation is specifically applied to the Chart input elements and the dropdowns.

In the example below, the Dashboard is initially opened in the Microsoft Edge browser and then the user logs out and uses the Chrome browser to view the Dashboard. The same dropdown options on the charts appear that were previously selected when the user logged out.



Users can also zoom in on a chart by selecting the portion to view. To switch back to the normal mode, use the Reset Zoom button.

The Firm’s Financial Dashboard has the following Charts. 

Top Timekeepers

Users can view their Firm’s ‘Top Timekeepers‘ for the selected period based on the Worked, WIP, Billed, Collected, and Accounts Receivable.

Select from the ‘Top 5’ or ‘Bottom 5’ Timekeepers using the second dropdown selector to analyze different performance spectrums.

Clicking on the bar next to the Timekeeper changes the chart to show a drilled-down view of the Clients and Matters with the Timekeeper’s Amount, Fees and Expense. Under the Billed view, the Matter name drills down to show individual invoices. Clicking on the Invoice number opens a new tab displaying the Invoice Details screen for the respective Invoice.



Top Clients

The Firm’s Top Clients chart filters data based on Worked, WIP, Billed, Collected, and the client’s Accounts Receivable.
The second dropdown selector filters the data on the Firm’s Top 5 or Bottom 5 Clients.

When the user clicks the Client bar, a new screen within the chart displays drilled-down information in a table. Selecting an option from the first dropdown shows the following information with the Client’s name displayed at the top of the table:

– Worked drills down to Matter Name, Time, and Expense. Clicking on one of the Matters, the table drills down further to show Timekeeper, Time (Worked Amount for Time), and Expense (Worked Amount for Expense.)

– Billed drills down to Matter Name, Billed Amount. Clicking on one of the Matters, the table drills down further to show the Invoice Number. On clicking the invoice number, the respective invoice is opened on a new screen with the Date, Invoice Total, and Matter Total.
