The Time Tracking add-on for InvoicePlane lets you easily build projects, add tasks, track your time and most importantly - bill for that time!
Installing the Time Tracking Add-on
See the add-on installation documentation.
Creating a Project
Time tracking starts with creating a project, so let's do that now. Click the Time Tracking link from the left-hand navigation menu.
Press the Create Project button.
Provide a name for the project, start typing the client name and select the name from the dropdown, and set the hourly rate for the project. Press the Save button when done.
Now that we have a project created, let's start adding tasks. Press the Add Task button.
Provide the task name and press the Submit and Add Another Task button to continue adding tasks or press the Submit and Close button once you're finished adding tasks.
Now that we have some tasks added, we can start timers on one or more tasks by pressing the green Start Timer button for the appropriate task(s).
* Note: Running tasks will continue to run even if you log out of InvoicePlane or close your browser.
Timers can be manually added or deleted to a task by clicking the Show Timers icon.
Any timers currently associated with the task will be listed here.
To manually add a timer, click the calendar icon, choose the start date and end date along with the start time and end time and press the Apply button.
When you're ready to bill for the time tracked on a task, press the Bill Task icon. Alternatively, multiple tasks may be billed at once by selecting each of the tasks to be billed and pressing the Bulk Actions button and selecting Bill Tasks.
Tasks can be billed to a new invoice or to an existing invoice. Selecting the appropriate options and pressing the Submit button will add the tasks as line items to an invoice.
Once tasks have been billed, they will appear under the Billed Tasks area.
