  2. Add indication in the Zoho browser tab when timer is active

    It's easy to forget to stop the timer after you complete a task. This makes it difficult to accurately bill clients for time spent. Anything that can help prevent this would be useful. My idea is to have some kind of indicator in the browser tab that the timer is running (similar to the audio indicator when a website has audio). This would really help!

  3. Invoicing from Timesheets

    Every month I create invoices from timesheets, I waste a lot of time adding VAT to each line individually - this should be an auto function when setting up a project, it would save hours.

  6. Project Cost/Revenue Budget = Accepted Estimates/Sales Order Values

    Please enable a feature where the Project Cost and Revenue Budget is automatically calculated based on the value of accepted estimates or sales orders.

    Currently for each variation cost we receive, we have to manually update the Project Cost. Comparing the project cost, to the total billed amount is the only way of ensuring the project has been invoiced in full and this requires a lot of manual work for something that could be automated.

  7. Bills migration from one project to another

    Hi,

    I would like to add a new feature which is very basic and unfortunately its not there.

    I added huge number of bills in wrong project and now to make corrections I need to delete them all and then re bill in the correct project. While it can be easily done with a move option across multiple projects.

    I tried bulk update bills and changed the project name but in reporting it failed to make the move of bills properly.

  8. Project Profitability should be part of Standard version

    I feel Project Profitability module which is currently part of the Professional version should be part of the Standard version. For small companies like mine Standard is sufficient, just need the Project Profitability since we are a project based company & need to know costing & profits of a particular project. Gross Profit = Sales Invoice minus Purchase Bills. Dont want to spend on Professional only for this.

  9. Effective from Rate Per Hour in projects

    I have an ongoing project billed by the hour, everything is perfect.

    This month I negotiated new rates for a couple of assigned users to this project. So I edited the project, updated the Rate Per Hour and all the historical money calculation in the project was updated with the new rate which is wrong, so all numbers are wrong.

    Cost per hour have an Effective From option that avoids this scenario, I don't see why we don't have it in Rate Per Hour, unless there is another way to handle this that I couldn't find

  10. Allow a new billing method "Based on Task Cost", for when each task has a flat fee cost.

    Included a new Billing method for when each task has a flat fee cost associated to it: "Based on Task Cost".

    I have projects where each task has a fixed flat fee, so I can´t use Staff Hours or Tasks hour and is not a Project Flat Fee neither.

  11. Permit client based time entries

    Timesheet entries should be permitted according to clients and/or projects rather than according to projects only. Currently, time keepers are unable to select the relevant client and project of that client. They can only see the project name. Some clients have the same project names and it causes confusion for time keeping staff.

  12. Provide a field for POs in Project setup

    Add tracking info to the Projects setup.

    Provide a field to for a PO# when creating a new Project. The Invoice template should retrieve the field name and value when we're billing for the project. The Project list/report should also display the PO.
    A field for a Job Number or Docket would also help.

    Anyone working freelance as a copywriter, graphic designer, web developer, etc, would be accustomed to using these features for timesheets and for billing.

  13. tracking of items purchased for a particular project

    Ours is Contracting company where we purchase items for projects. Now we cannot get the list of materials purchased for a particular project. It would be great if we could track items purchased for a project.

  15. Time sheets to track employee hours

    I want to be able to track time that our employees are working for the entire day. Currently they would have to make a new time sheet after they come back form lunch. I would like to see being able to enter multiple times worked under the same project in the same day. Also if they could be organized into a week that would be helpful as well.

  16. Change colour of paused task to yellow or orange

    When a timed task is running, it is green. When you pause it, it remains green, so it's possible to miss this fact. Can we please change it to yellow or orange to indicate it's not running?

  18. Recurring Projects

    I have repeating monthly services, which are charged on fixed cost.
    Even though there are fixed I create a project to log actual work hours in order to track internally how we perform and if our pricing is correct.

    The problem is that I have to clone this project each month manualy in order for the budget vs actual and revenue reports would be correct each month. Else the comparison is for a project which is setup up for one month vs logged hours of several months.

    It would be useful if there would be an option for setting up…

  20. Copy weekly timesheet project and task categories to the following week

    When i set up my timesheet for the week I have multiple tasks from multiple projects. I'd like to be able to duplicate the projects and tasks to the following week's timesheet so I don't need to scroll through all the project / task drop down menus that are hard to read.
    also want to be able to add comments in weekly view.
