    Thank you for your blog post above.

    Question from a new user. When I start the timer for internal time, what do I put in the client and matter when it asks me this question in the timer or time entry rows?

    also I have a lot of potential new clients and some I bill later some I do not as its just a quick phone call so can I transfer the time to a potential client later if it becomes a client
    also if i want to track or prove i have 15 hours of CLE in trust and estates a year should i just track that in internal time and then transfer to a new dummy account called continuing legal education
    ok I have a lot of questions, any tips let me know and thanks a lot

    • So for Internal Time, it shouldn’t ask you for a Client and Matter. To turn on Internal Time go to Settings – System tab and click Edit Settings. There you can check the box next to “Track Internal (Non-Client) Time” and click Save. This will now allow you to add Internal Time from the Dashboard, Time/Expenses, and Mobile/Widget.

      Yes, any time you make can be moved from client to client. You can open a previously saved entry which will allow you to change the Client and Matter and re-save the entry. You can also duplicate any previously saved entry you make if you enter the same work often and just switch up the client.

      Any further questions you have do not hesitate to contact Support at Support@Bill4time.com and we would be happy to assist you further. Have a great day!
