Documentation

Budget management

Budget management is based on the sub-task time tracking, the user timetable and the user hourly rate.

This section is available from project settings page: Project > Budget. There is also a shortcut from the drop-down menu on the board.

Budget Lines

Cost Lines

Budget lines are used to define a budget for the project. This budget can be adjusted by adding a new entry with an effective date.

Cost Breakdown

Cost Breakdown

Based on the subtask time tracking table and user information you can see the cost of each subtask.

The time spent is rounded to the nearest quarter.

Budget Chart

Budget Graph

Finally, by combining all information we can generate a graph:

  • Expenses represent user costs
  • Budget lines are the provisioned budget
  • Remaining is the budget left at the given time

Hourly Rate

Each user can have a pre-defined hourly rate. This feature is used for budget calculation.

To define a new price, go to User profile > Hourly rates.

Hourly Rate

Each hourly rate can have an effective date and different currencies.
