This grid lists a project's phases and sub-phases. It displays the budgeted, actual, and remaining hours and amounts for each phase for the invoiced time and expenses. Select a phase to display details for time and expenses specifically entered for it in the Time/Expense screen. Click Clear to remove the Phases filter form the Slips portal.

All Team Members

This portal displays all the time and expenses entered by project team members. The portal can be filtered to display the time and expenses for a selected team member, project phase, or a combination of both. It includes invoiced and non-invoiced hours and amounts; therefore, the portal totals will not always match the totals in the Employee and Phase grids.


In addition to filtering data displayed on the time and expense portal by employee or phase, you can filter the portal to view time and expenses for a specific date range, type, or invoice status. Any combination of filters can be used. You must refresh the screen to view the relevant data. Click Clear to remove the applied filters.


The grid also displays the task or description associated with the time or expense entries. If the time and expense entry has a task, then it shows the task in the Task/Description column. If it has no task, it then displays the description.



Use the portal filters to view time and expenses for a specific date range, type, or invoice status. Any combination of filters can be used.



Choose whether to list only Basic Services, Additional Services or Both.


All columns on the grid can be sorted by clicking on the column header. To see details for a specific time or expense entry, click on a row.
