Easy Books will keep track of time you've worked for your customers. And you can add any number of people as staff (or "workers"). For each, you can set the billable rates that you work at, for example "Normal" and "On-Call". As you enter time, you simply pick the rate and the app keeps track of the hours worked in each rate.
This is an add-on module for Easy Books, and not all businesses make money by charging out time by the hour. For those that don't, we wanted to make sure the user interface stays nice and simple. So you can turn the feature off completely in the add-ons screen. This removes the icon from the main screen, removes the report and all hides the settings specific to the Time Tracker.
The Workers drop-down shows the people in your business that work for your customers. Each of these uses a different rate card for each customer, so you can charge out people's time at different rates.
To add a new worker, click the drop-down list and choose Add Worker. To edit the name of an existing worker, click on the settings icon to the right of the drop-down.
If a member of staff leaves your business, you can hide them from normal view, or you can delete the old data. Hiding them from view will keep all the time entered available. Deleting is possible, but only if the worker is first marked as inactive. This is a safeguard against deleting the worker accidentally. If you delete the worker, all the time entries for them are deleted, but no financial entries are affected.
After choosing a particular worker, the list of customers that you have rate cards defined for is displayed in the customer drop-down list. Rate cards are used to tell the app about each billable rate for each customer.
To add a rate card to the list (for the selected worker), click the drop-down list and choose New Rate Card... followed by the customer. To edit an existing rate card, select the customer first, then click the settings icon to the right of the customer name.
To view the list of time entries, select a worker followed by a customer.
