Smokeball's automatically tracks all the time spent through Activity. There is no longer a need to start/stop a timer every time you create a document, email, and even phone calls.
As a result, most Smokeball users use AutoTime to create entries based on time spent automatically. Time Finder will be turned off by default if you are using AutoTime, since AutoTime automatically runs Time Finder.
If you prefer, you can still manually track your time in Smokeball using traditional billing methods.
The best practice is to use features like Activity and Time Finder to make sure you bill for all potential billable time not captured manually.
Use Time Finder and Activity to Manually Track Time in Smokeball
From multiple places in Smokeball, select the Time Finder button from the Action bar to see any time tracked in Smokeball that is not converted into a Time/Fee Entry.
Note: Time Finder will not be available if you have AutoTime enabled.
Time Finder can be filtered by date/time range or staff member
