This week we’re releasing some new reporting features to Quick Timesheets, so we thought we’d share some of these new improvements on our blog. As always, we’d love to hear from you if you have any feature requests.
Budgeted Hours Report
You can now allocated an “Estimate Hours” to a task, and bring up a report to see the completion of hours logged vs the projects or tasks budget.
Example: You might allocate 100 hours to a particular project, and the report will highlight the number of hours completed against the budget. If a project is running over budget, the chart will display the task in Red ( > 100%).
How can I set up a Budgeted Hours Report?
To set up a budget of hours against a project or task, just edit a Task (Settings -> Client/Tasks) and enter the budgeted hours in the “Estimated Hours” field. You can edit this field at any time in case you want to allocate more hours to a task.
Download to Excel / CSV
This has been a frequently asked for feature so we’re very pleased to announce this! You can now download the tabular data for most reports into Excel or any software that accepts CSV (comma separated values) .
Report Hours By Category
You can now chart the number of hours logged by Category of time. You can set up your own Categories from the Settings page, and the report also breaks down the Rate Type for each Category.
As an example you can chart the breakdown of Billable and Unbillable time for Meetings, Research and Design.
