Your dashboards are the first thing you see when you log in to your CosmoLex account.
Your ability to view dashboards depends on your user access.
CosmoLex has three dashboards:

This section provides unpaid, unbilled, and overdue item counts.
Unbilled Time & Expense Cards
Within the Snapshot section, clicking Unbilled T/E Cards accesses a list of billable items you have captured but not invoiced.
To the right of the window, clicking the Actions arrow allows you to edit unbilled items and save your changes.
By clicking Unpaid Invoices, you can access a list of all unpaid invoices. The Actions arrow allows you to view the invoice or the details behind it.
This works like Unpaid Invoices, only these invoices are past-due.
When you receive emails in CosmoLex, you can mark them as billable items. Those emails will then display in this list of emails that can be invoiced, but for which no time entry has been made.
When you click here, a list of your firm’s unbilled emails displays. You can use the Actions arrow to add a timecard to the email; this removes it from unbilled status and readies it for inclusion on your next invoice.
Unbilled Events, Notes, and Tasks
Events, Notes, and Tasks work like unbilled emails with one exception: besides creating a timecard for the event, you can also use the Action arrow to edit it.
The Timekeeper Utilization section displays all billable, non-billable, and no charge hours your timekeepers enter.
In the upper right corner of the section, you can click the gear icon to change the date range.
View Time Entries from Timekeeper Utilization
To view the individual time entries included under Timekeeper Utilization, click the value listed beside the Timekeeper’s name.
A screen opens, displaying all time entries listed under that category. From here, you can click the Action arrow to edit those time entries.
The Balances section displays cumulative:
- Unpaid Balances
- Unbilled Balances
- Operating Retainers
- Trust Retainers
The interactive graph allows you to hover over each graph bar to view the cumulative amount. You can also click a bar for additional information or even update items within a category.
Unpaid Balances displays a list of Unpaid Invoices. The Action arrow allows you to view the invoice in Document Viewer or to view invoice details.
Unbilled Balances displays recent user activity such as transactions, invoices, matters, logins, etc. Clicking a category displays all Time and Expense cards that you have not invoiced. Use the Actions arrow to edit these entries.
Clicking Operating Retainer displays balances for your Matters.
Clicking Trust Retainer displays balances for your Matters.

- To the right of the item, click the orange Action arrow.

When you click the Billed Amount balance, the screen displays all invoices billed during that time period. Click the Action arrow to view an invoice or its details.
Clicking the Paid Amount bar displays all invoices paid during a given time period. You can click the Action arrow to view a paid invoice or its details.
