Recording your billable time is such a pain! No one likes it, but you have to do it. It’s how you get paid. Even if you don’t bill by the hour, you need to track your time to set your fees profitably.
Have you ever had this experience? It’s the end of the day. You have been working hard for over 10 hours. Your time sheet has barely 5 hours on it. Yes there was some non-billable time today, but not that much! You struggle to reconstruct, and if you’re lucky, get it to 6.5. The rest is lost…
Help is on its way.
With Amicus Online you will almost certainly capture billable time you were missing before. You can do time entries simply & quickly. Or your assistant can do them for you. Even better, Amicus will do them for you. A time entry can be done with a single click on almost any item in Amicus – an email, phone call, appointment etc. Everything all filled in.
If you want, Amicus will do automatic time entries for you, so you don’t even have to remember to click! For example, every time you mark a billable task done, or send an email to a client, Amicus can do a time entry for you.
Imagine that – billable time being recorded for your emails, without you having to do a thing!
It gets better still. In any list in Amicus, you can see whether or not a time entry has been done. So for example when looking at your phone calls you can immediately see any you have not billed for. One click and it’s done.
And just in case you still forget, the terrific Time Entry Assistant is always there to help you capture all your time …
Time Entry Assistant
Think of the Time Entry Assistant as your personal butler. Whenever you ask for assistance, it is there. It will review everything in Amicus and offer to do time entries for you on anything that might be missing.
The Time Entry Assistant displays a list of all your file activities where no time entry has yet been recorded – email, appointments, completed tasks, documents and phone calls. Set the range of time you want to look at, and it will show them all. Review the list, and with a single click you can create that missing Time Entry.
Here’s an example of how helpful this can be. You probably send emails from your smartphone every day. At the end of the day when you go to do your time sheet, it’s so easy to forget those emails. Most people do. So every day there is at least one billable email that you forget to do a time entry for. The Time Entry Assistant will capture all those for you. And so much more!
It gets even better. Each day, when you first log into Amicus, it tells you about any activities that are missing time entries. Click the reminder and your helpful assistant gives you a full list – and will do a time entry for each.
