We are looking to replace our many systems to intervals to serve as our PM, time tracking and issue tracking system. One request I have is related to how the billable flag is set. It appears that the flag is only set at the time entry level by the person submitting the time entry. In certain cases this doesn't feel right. Really the PM for a project should decide if the task is billable or not, in many cases the developer will have no idea if the task is billable or not. Therefore, it would be great if the PM (or person who creates the task) can set billable to true or false. Then any time that is entered against that task will have the billable flag set automatically set and not be changed by the person submitting the time.
Maybe this can be done by an extra property? BillableOverWritable ? Then the project manager can decide by itself if a tasks billable can be overwritten by the user or not.
We are really interested in having the billable/unbillable setting at task level predefined by the PM; our developers/designers do not know if a task should be set to billable or not.Are there any plans to add this feature in the near future?
Thank you for the additional input. We do not have any plans to add this feature in the near future. For now we will be keeping the billable designation at the project level and allowing the users to toggle it on or off when adding time. We recommend reviewing time entries on each project and task, via the timesheet, and correcting any time entries that people may have entered incorrectly.As long as the project level designation is used, the time will be entered as specified unless the person specifically changes it to be otherwise.
