The Summary tab offers you another way to Quick Bill your clients. You can enter either the billed or the adjusted amount and the application will complete the remaining fields for you.

Time & Expenses

The Time & Expenses tab shows the WIP detail for the selected client and allows you to bill at the level of individual WIP transactions. You can right-click and use the context menu to choose how to bill the selected entries, unbill entries, print the list of time entry transactions, and edit the transactions directly from this screen.


Use the Nonbillable tab to track time spent on nonbillable activities and relieve WIP for nonbillable items.


The Links tab enables you to add links to files, folders, websites, interactions, or documents outside of Practice CS, including documents stored in FileCabinet CS or GoFileRoom.


Use the Compose tab to make changes to the detail section of an invoice. In this tab, you can view the invoice detail as it would appear on the invoice, change font properties, and format the text of the invoice as needed.


Use the Preview tab to review your invoice on screen.
