A fixed date range can be set on a new budget or applied to an existing budget. Setting a fixed date range will always keep the budget on the specified range, regardless of if you navigate away from the page or log off Clocktimizer. This is different than viewing the budget on a date range, which will only be applied until you leave the page. 


For a new budget

Step 1: Upon creation of a new budget (by clicking the "Create new budget" button) click the checkbox at the bottom of the screen that says "Set a fixed date range". 



Step 2: This will open a calendar in which you can choose a predetermined time frame (such as this year, this quarter or this month) or select a custom time frame by choosing a start (marked blue below) and end (marked red below) date in the calendar boxes. 



For an existing budget or a budget created through the Fee Comparison

A fixed date range can also be applied to an existing budget, or a budget created through the Fee Comparison. 


Step 1: First, navigate to an existing budget. To add a fixed date range, click the wrench/spanner icon on the right side of the page (marked yellow below). 



Step 2: Next, click the box for "Set a fixed date range" and a set the date range using the calendar boxes or one of the existing options. Click "Save" and your budget will update to only reflect the recorded value for the specified date range.
