Work time tracking in BaccS has two main goals:
- To actually count your work time for further invoicing;
- To manually enter actual work time after finishing a project for statistical purposes (count and build charts for average income per hour, average speed, etc.).
To solve these tasks, you can use the following fields in the job editing form: Work time, Fix work time, and Work time column in the Job tasks table.
Each of these fields contains Start timer and Stop timer buttons. Also, you can simply enter values manually. When you make edits in the Job tasks table (change quantities and units), the application tries to estimate work time based on previous jobs. This may lead to overwriting data you manually entered in the Work time field. To prevent this, tick Fix work time checkbox.
When you edit value in the Work time column of Job tasks table, the system will calculate total work time and write it to the job's Work time field.
To copy job's Work time value o the current task, click Apply time tracking to the current row button on the table's toolbar:
The system will insert work time as hours and pick-up correct price for the task based on existing price-lists.
The simplest statistical information associated with work time values is available right in the job list. The following columns are available (they are hidden by default, use the Column chooser
to show them):
- Amount per hour
- Volume per hour
- Work time (minutes)
Additionally, same columns are available in the Translation projects list. Their values are calculated based on similar values from all jobs included in each project. Also, these values are displayed right in the project editing window:
These columns allow to view and analyze your performance right from within job list. Additionally, there are a number of built-in QuickReports
using this data and representing it in a visual format:
- Profitability by time (pivot & chart)
- Profitability by time (tabular)
- Productivity Dashboard
Here is an example of one of such reports:
