  2. Allow decimal time entry in Android app

    In the web based interface, I am able to enter for example 1.25 hours of time on the timesheet. However, in the android app, I must enter this as 1:15. It's not a huge deal, but accepting 1.25 would make this more consistent and is a fair bit easier to type on phone keyboard as well.

  4. Log time for another users and sub contractors

    As an admin you should be able to add time to a project for another users. I would also like the ability to create subcontractors without having to create a user account for them. Thanks.

  5. Add billable/non-billable hours indicator to timesheet calendar view.

    We can see the total number of hours recorded for a given month on the calendar view of the timesheet. It would be very helpful to see a split between billable and non-billable hours on both the overall monthly total as well as the weekly totals. As it stands, we need to run reports any time we want an accurate total of billables for the month. This is cumbersome.

  6. Implement the creation of a common task list for all projects

    The user should be able to implement and utilize a common task list for all projects to simplify time entry on a project. This would be useful for users who regularly utilize the same tasks over and over. This would enable the user to avoid having to re-create the same tasks for every new project.

  7. Cost Plus on Expenses

    Projects needs the ability to have a cost plus on expenses for billing purposes. When setting up the project simply put a percentage to add on all expenses and when billing expenses are marked up by that amount. Most of. our jobs are by Task Rate and Cost Plus on Expenses

  8. Project or Timesheet Fixed Fee option

    We only have Fixed Fee Projects.

    Need a way to create a projects with tasks that can be set to completed with the option to put the date started and ended.

    Then have proper reporting to view the completion of or the timeline completion.

    Seems this option has been ignored in the past posts and never looked into in either Timesheets or Projects.

  10. Make Projects Able to Be Bulk Edited

    At the very least I'd like to be able to mark them Active / Inactive in bulk. But there are a lot of other options that could be added to a bulk update feature.

  11. Project invoicing workbench - ability to adjust project hours and expenses to invoice to customer

    Creation of a "Project Invoicing workbench". This feature is like a dashboard where all the projected related logged time, expenses etc.. is visible in one place. A filter can be placed on projects for a particular customer where we would select multiple projects done for a customer.

    Then there would be a ability to adjust the logged time and expenses for the selected project. This is needed because i may want to only invoice time that may be admissible for that project and expenses that the client will accept. Some expenses may not be in my contract that my employees…

  13. Project entries from Sales Invoice and Purchase Bills, very essential..

    Allow project entries to be made from Sales Invoice and Purchase bills, right now Zoho only allows to enter from "Expenses". We want to enter it on accrual basis and not on cash basis.

  17. Have the budget minus the expenses in the project snap shot and list the actual status of the budget.

    Have the budget minus the expenses in the project snap shot and list the actual status of the budget. It looks like the project section was designed around labor and hours, and it is lacking when items are purchased for the project or expenses to the project. Why list the project budget if I still need a caluculator to figure out how much $ is left in the budget.

  18. Projects by man-days

    Not every one bills in hours. Many of us bills in man-days. The app should have ability to create projects and raise invoices by man-days. I should be able to log in hours but the invoice has to be in man-days.

  19. Project Completed / Finished

    It would be great if we have an option to mark the project as completed or finished. So we don't need to keep all the projects in same list or at least we will know what are the on going projects and what are the finished projects.

  20. invoice both bills and time from projects

    While creating an invoice from a Project's Overview page I'd like to be able to add both the unbilled vendor Bill and the Unbilled Hours at the same time. I'm currently only able to add both of those items to an invoice while being in the Contacts page. So, I have to have two browser windows open to get this accomplished or create two seperate invoices from the Project Overview.
