Work isn’t always billable

By - 28 Feb 2017


Now you can see when your time is money. Need to schedule some time for work on your company website? Oh, but hang on, internal jobs mess with your reports. Not any more! You can now specify whether bookings you add to Resource Guru are billable or not and get a breakdown in reports.

billable default

All you need to do is set the “billable default” at the project level. After that, all new bookings for that project will use the default setting which you can override for individual bookings if necessary.

If you have an existing Resource Guru account, you will be able to categorize your existing bookings when you next log in. Simply follow the instructions at the top of the page.

Getting insights into how non-billable time is being spent is vital to the health of many businesses so you can now get a breakdown of utilization by billable/non-billable time in the reports.

As part of this work, we gave the reports more than just a bit of a facelift. In fact, we completely reworked the back end so you should notice some serious performance improvements. And, while we were in there, we added the ability to toggle between hour and day units plus a new time off summary in the headline numbers.

    Cool feature! It would be also great if I could switch the status of the booking the similar way. For example to decide if it’s initial plan or already confirmed booking. I’d really appreciate it!

    • Glad to hear you like it Piotr :) Thanks for the feedback – that’s something that’s on our list for the future. Cheers!

    is it possible to set a value to the billable hours?
    for example if I have an ADR of 500 USD I would like to set it in resource guru,
    thank you

      Hi Jb,

      I’m afraid it’s not currently possible to set billable rates but this is firmly on our roadmap for the future. I don’t have an accurate release date at the moment, so can I suggest that you sign up for our newsletter in the footer of our homepage – That way we can keep you in the loop about release dates, new features and other news.
