Non-billable activities are tasks or work that are not invoiced to clients. These activities are usually internal or administrative, like team meetings, research, or training. Keeping track of non-billable time helps businesses manage their resources and project costs, even if those activities are not directly charged to clients.
Key concepts to remember for navigating finance dashboards
Cost is calculated based on the hourly cost rate of your team members.
Hours tracked * Cost rates of respective team members/roles
Budgeted hours: When you create a project, you typically estimate or set a total number of hours that you expect it will take to complete the project as budgeted hours.
Allocated hours: The total number of hours allocated for the project via resource management.
Tracked hours: refers to the total number of hours that your team has tracked for the project. It represents the actual time spent working on the project and is reported using timesheets.
You can track your finances after creating a project with an appropriate billing method and allocating project hours, budget, and resources.
