One of Smokeball's unique tools is the ability to keep track of every completed activity.

Activity is similar to having a pedometer that helps you remember everything you are doing throughout the day including events, tasks, documents, emails, memos, and even matter administration.

Use Activity to prevent missing any potential billable time for Smokeball Billing and understand firm profitability in Firm Insights.


Depending on the billing type set for the matter, AutoTime will create billable or non-billable entries for the matter using the tracked activities.
