Step 2: Select Matter Display Information

Configure the filter parameters for your report.

All available data that can be displayed in a report is listed in Step 2. Select the checkbox next to the data items that you want displayed in the report. If you selected a Matter Type in Step 1, then the data captions that your company uses will be displayed. If "None Selected" is chosen in Step 1, you will see the default Lawtrac captions. 

Display selections can be set for your report in the following categories from the initial screen:

  • Firm / Vendor Information
  • Employees of the Firm
  • Additional Data



Select a category from the right sidebar to view more detailed filter parameters. Selections made to these categories populate the fields available in the Criteria tab (Step 3). 

For example, users could add the following filter parameters in the Display Info. tab to include additional fields in the Criteria tab (Step 3): 

  • To add filters for Parties and Entities, click Parties & Entities from the sidebar menu then select any of the respective check boxes seen.
  • To add a filter for Invoice Approvers, click Invoices from the sidebar menu then select the Invoice Approvers check box. 
  • To add a filter for Matter Team Members, click Legal Staff from the sidebar menu then select the Team Member check box. See the image below to view what this criteria parameter looks like in Step 3.

The table below defines all of the sidebar menu options:
