User Profile in Time Tracker
tab in Time Tracker is used to adjust user properties such as name, login, password, and email. The page itself is available to users with the manage_own_settings
access right (all default roles
), but the ability to change name, login, and email is restricted to users with the manage_own_account
right (default Co-manager, Manager, and Top manager roles). Users in other roles see these fields with read-only values.
User profile tab in Time Tracker
page is relatively simple. You may be wondering where other user attributes are set, such as user rates and project assignments. They are set elsewhere. The sections below provide more information about it.
If you use Time Tracker for cost calculations or for billing / invoicing, you may need to set user pay rate. A rate is a monetary value per hour of work. Rates are set on the Users
page by team manager or co-managers. Rates are set and used differently, depending on tracking mode
User Rate in "Time" Tracking Mode
tracking mode, the Default hourly rate
determines user pay rate per hour. Managers assign it on user edit page. To get there, go to the Users
tab in Time Tracker and then edit a particular user. Note that the currency is set on the Group settings
"Default hourly rate" is user pay rate in "Time" tracking mode
Rates in "Projects" and "Projects and Tasks" Tracking Modes
and Projects and tasks
tracking modes give you an additional flexibility to set project rates separately. In the example screenshot below, one project is set at 10 monetary units per hour, while another is at 20. Note that the Default hourly rate value in these tracking modes is not used for cost / pay calculations. Rates are set individually per project for each user.
Set up different project rates in "Projects" and "Projects and tasks" tracking modes
Managers can assign projects to users on user edit pages in Time Tracker by ticking relevant project checkboxes. A ticked
checkbox means assigned project
. Such project is visible to user and time can be logged against it.
