About The Timer In Add Note Screen

CaseFox ® also features a "mini" timer in the Add Note (Time/Expense) screen. The mini timer records a minimum of 6 minutes and thereafter, in 3-minute granularity. The mini-timer includes three buttons.

Start Timer

To start the timer. The timer is a passive timer, that is, it works silently without displaying a running counter. After clicking on this button, you may navigate to other screens or even other websites (without closing the browser window or tab).


To pause the timer. After clicking on this button, you may navigate to other screens or even other websites (without closing the browser window or tab). You may then come back to the Add Note screen again to Resume the timer.


To stop the timer. The timer is entered in the Tenth of Hours box when this button is clicked.

1. Launching The Timer: Click on the clock icon on the dashboard to launch the timer. The main browser window may be closed after launching the timer window.

2. Using The Timer:

Click on "Start" to start the timer. You may pause or clear the timer at any time.

While the timer is running or after pausing/stopping the timer, select a desired case from the dropdown list.

If you want to disregard the timer and enter a flat fee, enter an amount (without the currency symbol) in the flat fee amount box.

Select a minimum time. For example, if you select "15 min" and save the time entry before the timer has run for 15 minutes, the system will record a 15-minute billable time.

Select a time increment. Time increment refers to the granularity of time recording. For example, if you select "3 Min" and the timer runs for 13 minutes, the system will record 15 minutes.

Enter service performed. This text will become a line item in an invoice for the selected case.

Select UTBMS codes, if the client requires them.

Save when the service performed is finished.

Desktop timer window can also be used for entering time manually instead of using the timer function.
