KCS - What does a Historical Report mean?

Objective:

  • To explain what it means to have "historical representation" of data

Environment:

  • Clio Web App
  • Reports

Additional Information:

Revenue Report, Productivity by User Report, Productivity by Client Report, Matter Balance Summary Report

Answer:

Restricting your report to a specific date range will give you a historical representation of the data. This means it will show what status the information was in at the time of the date range specified. 

For example, if your January invoices were in draft until February, running the report for January and February together will reflect the amounts billed on those invoices. However, if you select to generate your report just on the month of January, it will not represent the dollar amounts billed to your client due to the time not yet being on an approved invoices within the month of January. This is a historical representation of your data.
