Invoicing tracked time & expenses

Invoice tracked time and associated expenses to your clients, allowing them to compensate you for the rendered services. The invoicing process involves handling both tracked time and project-related expenses. 

Importing time & expenses #

  1. Open the invoice in your workspace
  2. Click on Import time and expenses
  3. Choose client projects you intend to invoice
  4. Specify date range and projects for which you want to import time and expenses
  5. For expenses, activate the Include billable expenses option
  6. Choose the grouping preference for items on the invoice:
    • Single Item: Merge all hours into one line item
    • Detailed: List each time entry as an individual line item
    • Grouped: Group hours by project, user, or date with further subgrouping options

Specify if you want to round imported time and click Import to finalize the process.

As a result, all time entries/expenses matching the selected date range and project will be imported.

Configuring imported time & expenses #

Setting time rounding #

You can configure the time rounding option in the Workspace settings. Note that when rounding time, each individual time entry is rounded, not just the final total.

Line items #

Editing line items from the imported items (e.g. changing description, amount, or cost) won’t affect the actual time entries. If you delete a line item, all time entries from that item will lose their invoiced status.

Configure invoices manually #

If you’d like to manually configure invoices, you can mark an expense as invoiced or uninvoiced in the Detailed expense report by selecting them through bulk edit.

Important considerations #

  • Only uninvoiced and billable time entries and expenses can be imported
  • You can import time and expense into an invoice multiple times, provided it is for the same client
  • If entry is approved, after import:
    • Invoice items are automatically populated
    • Relevant entries are automatically marked as invoiced
    • Deleting the entire invoice marks all entries as uninvoiced
  • Expenses with a unit:
    • The unit column in the invoice takes the unit information from the expense
    • The price column in the invoice takes the price information from the category
  • Expenses without a unit are displayed as a single unit in the invoice
  • Item type in invoice:
    • Imported time categorized as Service
    • Imported expense categorized as Product

You can customize the names of Service and Product item types in the invoice settings. Additionally, you have the option to hide the item type column from the PDF.
