Primary Grouping

Many of our reports allow you to group data. The Project Dashboard report allows you to choose one primary grouping.

This includes the following options:

  • Customer
  • Project Status
  • Project Category

We subtotal the duration, cost and billing amounts when data is grouped. The only exception to this is when a chosen grouping has projects in multiple currencies. In that case amount fields display N/A as amounts from different currencies can’t be added up.

Archive Status: Choose whether you wish to run the report for just Active or Archived projects, or both.

Project Status: You can choose to filter the project list by project status; i.e, Complete, Not Started or In Progress.

Time Format: Choose whether the report output should show hours in hh:mm or

Billable to Customer: The Spent Amount and Time Amount is calculated based on Billable Hourly Rate rather than the Hourly Cost Rate. (By default, this is unchecked)

Apply Rounding: This checkbox applies rounding to the report based on your account settings. This shows you what the durations will look like when added to an invoice. The Actual Hours, Time Amount and Spent Hours / Amount are calculated after applying rounding to the timesheet entries.

Apply Expense Markup: Check this option to include markup amount for Expense Amount and Spent Amount columns.

Exclude Fixed Amount from Spent: Switched on by default. Switching this setting off will Include the Fixed Amounts in your Spent total.

Project Tags: Filter the projects based on project tags.

Project Categories: Filter projects based on project categories.

Project with Remaining Budget: View only projects where the budget has been defined and their hours or amount remaining.

Project Budget based on Linked Invoices: Use the total value of linked invoice line items as the budget.

Timesheet Approval Status: Filter timesheets to include in report output based on status.

Expense Approval Status: Filter expenses to include in report output based on status.
