Meer informatie over Time.

If your organization uses the Time app to track time and expense entries, you review your organization's costs and billing in Cloud. Using the Time and Billing apps, you can view summary information about your organization's overall costs and invoices on Cloud.

You can also generate reports that give records of some of the costs of your engagement work using the Analysis app to provide short-term forecasts for your engagements or for your organization. When forecasting, you may consider both quantitative and qualitative analysis. For quantitative analysis, you will likely need to review historical data, and some of that data can be pulled directly from Cloud.

View cost and billing summaries

You can use some of the summary sections in the Time and Expense apps to review high-level information about your organization's profitability.

To view the time summary:

  1. Ensure that you have the Entity Access role (or the equivalent privileges) for the appropriate entities and the View all staff entries permission.

  2. From the Cloud menu, select Time.

  3. On the My Time page, select the Time menu, then choose Staff | All Staff.

    Choose All Staff to view the time entries for other staff members in your organization. Your own entries are also displayed.

  4. Select the time period menu, which displays Today by default. Choose one of the other options to include a larger range of time entries.

    Choose one of the predefined time periods, or choose Range to enter your own start and end dates.

  5. Select the Summary Totals () button.

    All the time entries for the chosen range are displayed. Click the Summary Totals icon to display widgets that summarize the time entry information.

Three panels are displayed at the bottom of the Time page. These panels include summary information about your billable and non-billable hours for the selected period, the active period, and the year to date.

You can narrow the scope of the summary information by choosing a client in the entity selector. You can also filter the results by work code, engagement, source, status, and whether the entries are billed or unbilled.

You can select a client entity in the entity selector at the top left side of the page in order to filter the content on the Billing page. You will see any invoices for this client for a predefined period, and you will also see WIP summaries for this client alone displayed in panels.

These widgets summarize the WIP at the start of the period, the WIP that were entered during this period, and the WIP at the end of the period.

Generate a Time and Expense report

When you are reviewing the summary information from Time, you may want more detailed information about the costs your organization incurred. You can generate summary reports for your time entries and your expenses to review these costs. For example, if you wanted to review all of the time entries for one of last year's engagements for a specific client or to track profitability of your firm.

You can generate a summary report with the following parameters:

  • SoortTime

  • Opmaak:Overzicht

  • Group by: Work Code

  • PersoneelAll

  • Entiteit:The Cloud entity for your client

  • Opdracht:Last year's engagement for your client

  • Work Code: All

  • From date: Start date for your organization's prior fiscal year

  • To date: End date for your organization's prior fiscal year

To generate a summary Time report:

  1. Ensure that you have the View all staff entries permission.

  2. Ga in het Cloudmenu naar de app Analyse.

  3. From the Type drop-down menu, choose Time.

  4. From the Format drop-down menu, choose Summary.

  5. Set the other parameters for your report.

  6. Klik op Aanmaken.

    Select the Generate button to run your report.

One of your staff members entered these non-billable hours over roughly one week. You can see how many non-billable hours were spent for each day on the report.

You can contact the staff member for more information about these entries, and based on that discussion you can determine whether you should expect to have more non-billable entries for this client in the future.

Generate an Invoice report

A simple way to measure your organization's profitability is to generate a list of invoices for a given period of time. For example, if you wanted to know how much your organization invoiced in the last month, you could generate a report to find out.

To generate an Invoice report for all clients:

  1. U heeft machtiging Bekijk OHW en Facturatie nodig.

  2. Ga in het Cloudmenu naar de app Analyse.

  3. From the Type drop-down menu, select Invoice.

  4. From the Format drop-down menu, select Detailed or Summary.

  5. From the Group by drop-down menu, select Clients.

  6. Select Date and Sort options as appropriate.

  7. Klik op Aanmaken.

    Select the Generate button to create an Invoice report

Generate a Billing report

The Billing report enables you to compare the amount billed to clients with the number of staff hours worked by calculating two rates: the billing rate and the effective rate.

  • Billing rate - The staff rate assigned to the person in Settings. This rate ignores any write up/down amounts.

  • Effective rate - The actual rate after all write up/down amounts are factored in to the staff rate.

This report can be filtered by staff or by client.

Let op: Expense entries and personal allocation are not included in the calculation of any rates.

In practice, the two rates should closely match one another. This indicates that the amount you expected to bill (the billing rate) matches the amount actually billed (the effective rate). An effective rate that consistently differs may indicate a problem. For example, a consistently low effective rate indicates that invoices are often being written down. This could mean clients are not being quoted the correct amount, or that staff are being prevented from working efficiently and spending more time than expected.

To generate a Billing report:

  1. U heeft machtiging Bekijk OHW en Facturatie nodig.

  2. Ga in het Cloudmenu naar de app Analyse.

  3. From the Type menu, select Billing.

  4. From the Format drop-down menu, select Detailed or Summary.
