Projects in Time Tracker

Projects are available in Time Tracker when you use either projects or projects and tasks tracking mode. You can set the tracking mode on the Group settings page.

To manage projects use the Projects tab. Users in roles having the manage_projects access right (default co-manager, manager, and Top manager roles) can create new projects with the Add button. They can also edit or delete projects using the Edit and Delete icons in the project table.

When you use projects, user pay rates are assigned individually per project. However, on the above screen we don't see any rate-related controls. What happens is that user's default hourly rate is assigned to a new project for each assigned user. You can edit it, as well as new assigned project rate, on the user edit page accessible from the Users page. See also User Profile, which explains user pay rates with more details.

Project Files

If you have the Attachments plugin enabled you can attach files to projects. In this situation a Browse button becomes available as on the screenshot above. It allows to add a file upon project creation. For example, you can add a readme file, a detailed project specification, or a picture. More files can be added from the project list (Projects menu) utilizing the File icon. This is also how you access project files. The File icon is green for projects having attachments, yellow otherwise. More information about file attachments is available here.

"Projects and Tasks" Tracking Mode

If you use projects and tasks tracking mode you can also assign tasks to projects. Assigning only specific tasks to projects helps to reduce clutter for users when they enter their work time.
