Setting Up Default Rates

AdvoLogix will default the rate on new Time Entries in the following ways:

  1. Using a specific Rate for a specific Activity or Task Code.
  2. Using a specific Rate for a specific Timekeeper only for a specific Matter.
  3. Using the same Rate for a specific Matter, regardless of the Timekeeper.
  4. Setup a default Rate for a specific Timekeeper when 1 and 2 above do not apply.

Multiple currency organizations have an additional option for a default rate for each Timekeeper/Currency.  For more information, please follow this link.

Rate Defaulting Behavior

Please note, the default rate is automatically entered when the Time Form is initially opened. The rate default may subsequently change as the parameters on the Time form change. Changing either the Matter, the Timekeeper, or an Activity or Task Code may invoke a new Rate.
