Staff Active Timers portlet

Show expandable text

The Staff Active Timers portlet is available on the Firm Dashboard.

This portlet shows all active running timers (both running desktop timers and running timers in Time & Expense Entry). Staff who have security permission to enter time and expenses for themselves and for other staff, and permission to edit prior period entries (if the timer running is in a prior period), can stop a timer from this portlet by right-clicking and choosing Stop Timer from the context menu.

You can select a staff filter from the drop-down list to narrow down the list of timers displayed in the portlet. To display the Filter field, click the Two white down arrows button, or right-click and choose Show Options from the context menu.

Security note: When you enable security privileges for a portlet on the Security Groups setup screen, Practice CS may also enable privileges to view the data available in the portlet. Conversely, removing privileges for viewing data may also remove privileges for related portlets. Consult the Privileges changed pane on the Security Groups setup screen to see all privilege changes that are triggered by enabling access to a portlet.

For this portlet, if no privileges are already enabled for the following security option(s), full privileges will be enabled.

  • Data > Time & Expense Entries > Review

If your firm has multiple offices, you may want to rescind privileges to information for other offices. See More about security privileges for additional information on the relationships between various security privileges.
