  2. 'Timesheets' should be changed to 'Projects'

    The main area navigation selectors within Zoho Books include an option called "Timesheets" below "Accountant" and above "Reports". This option should be renamed to "Projects" as it is more than just timesheets. Hierarchically (within Books), it is Projects first, then it is timesheets, expenses, etc. Having to click on "Timesheets" to get to the "Projects" area is weird and confusing. Small change, but would make the UI make a lot more sense.

  3. Fixed Fee Project Profitability Summary

    Most of our projects are fixed fee. Unfortunately, the Profitability Summary in Books does not calculate fixed fee projects profits correctly.

    It is a simple equation: PROJECT PROFIT = INVOICED AMOUNT PAID - (minus) (PROJECT EXPENSES + LABOR COST).

    For Example we invoice a customer $3,000; expenses total $800; labor costs total $700; total cost is $1,500; gross project profits are $1,500 or 50% margin.

    Currently Profitability Summary only accounts for expenses.

  5. Project sorting option by date

    It would be nice if we have an option to sort the project both on the Dashboard and on the Project section too to sort by date so we can easily recognize which project came first.

  6. Add ordering feature.

    Allow a customer to log on and choose what item they want to order. This would start a work order automatically.

  7. 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.

  8. Project with itemised fixed budget

    I want to be able to create a project that has itemized fixed budget. For example lie this:
    - development : 5000.-
    - design : 3000.-
    - hosting: 1000.-

    When I issue an invoice for the project, I can show the items.

    Right now I can only have one total fixed budget, which I need to edit every time something is added and when I issue an invoice, only one line for the total budget is indicated.

  9. Timesheet Filter

  10. Create a ZenDesk App specifically for logging time against projects

    I would really like a ZenDesk app that would have two functions.

    1. It would lookup the customer by matching the ZenDesk "organization" name to the customer company name.

    2. It would then filter to show projects associated with that customer. From there someone could easily select the correct project and task and then if it filled in the ticket ID and subject from the ZenDesk ticket into the notes field for the time entry on the project that would make logging time through ZenDesk super easy.

  12. Add the ability to print a project as a "Job Ticket".

    A "Job Ticket" with Project Name and Description, including Task List and Task-Descriptions would be very useful to help visualize a work flow.
    In addition, an option to label it as either "Job Ticket" or "Assignment Confirmation" would be beneficial for CRM.

  13. Allow fractional hours in project budgets

    Currently, when editing a project with a budget of the "Hours per Task" type, Zoho rejects any number of hours that is not a whole number. For some small projects, it would be great to budget, for example, 1.5 hours for a task, instead of having to round to 1 or 2.

  14. Add the Timesheet link to the Weekly Time Log so that I can jump to the entry and add my Notes

    It's nice to quickly add a time entry to the Weekly Time Log, but I can't add Notes there - I have to click out and around to get back to that entry to add my Notes. If you were to have either 1) a Note entry block, or 2) a link to the Time Entry so that I can quickly jump there and add the Note, that would be awesome!

  16. Add a way to template invoice preferences for projects

    The majority of our projects are invoiced with the same fields.
    We have a project template that we clone.
    The cloned projects inherit the invoice preferences of the original.
    But - if you edit or rename the project after the initial clone, the invoice preferences re-set.
    It is annoying to have to constantly re-set the invoice preferences.
    If we could set our default preferences we would only need to deal with them occasionally

  18. Project Statement

    We will like to generate statement of accounts for Projects rather than Clients . We have clients who we run mulitple projects with and they sometime want to see statements related to that project rather than all payments. It helps with clarity

  19. It would be nice to be able to create PO, add expenses and invoice by additing item for construction and maintenance projects

    As a construction and maintenance company we need to track our expenses, create purchase orders and invoices(by adding items) under a project. Any transaction that is created under the project should automatically reference the project.

  20. add a little more project tracking into zoho books.

    I love zoho books for my small professional services business. I just need to be able to organize a project with tasks and subtask (or phases and tasks). If you did this, you would be the only simplified project accounting software on the market right now. Integrating project management with accounting would be so awesome!
