Time-tracking allows the users of AccountingSuite™ to log hours against a project. The tasks are items,  just items that aren’t tracked in inventory. They are known as service items.

In order to track time, the following tasks must be complete:

  9. Check the Billable checkbox if you wish to include this time on a future invoice and to appear in the costs on reports.
  10. Type a Description to appear on the invoice.

If there is an existing sales order for this work, you may click the Link Sales Order button. A list of open sales order will be listed in a popup. Choose the Sales Order and click Save.  You can also generate and/or link an invoice by clicking the link.
