Projects help you to bundle and structure your time entries.

Projects can always be assigned to one customer, whereby several projects can also be assigned to one customer.

How exactly to create a new project and what additional settings you can make for it, you will find out in this short tutorial.


Overview:


1. Add Project:


You can find an overview of all the projects in your workspace via the Projects navigation point:




To create a new project from here, click on Add project and assign a Name for the new project (e.g. Project 1):


 

  1. When you create a new project, it is assigned to a random project color, which you can use later at various points to locate it more quickly.

    You can also change this project color individually:


     

  • Initially, a new project is not assigned to a client. If you would like to store a client here, you simply select the Client field and select an already created client (e.g. Sample Client 3):

     

  • If you have not yet created a client or would like to create a new one for the new project as well, select Create Client, as shown in this example. 

    Here you enter the Name of the new client (e.g. Customer 1) and optionally add a description (e.g. 50 EMP) - then click Create Client:

     



2. Additional Settings:


  • You can use the Additional Settings to set your new project as generally Billable.

    If you decide to do this, you can still book individual times later as non-billable for this project - so you only make a default setting for the times that you book for this project in the future:


     

  • Furthermore, you have the choice between a Task-based time budget and a Manual time budget, whereby the first variant is already preselected for you.

    With this you can deposit tasks within your project with individually estimated time expenditure.

    Times that are then posted later to these stored tasks are compared with this estimated value and thus show the difference between target and actual.

    • The Manual time budget allows you to specify a Time budget in hours (e.g. 40) for the entire project, from which all time spent on this project will be automatically deducted in the future:

       

Finally, after you have named your project and, if necessary, made further settings, click the Create Project button below for the final creation:
