Setup projects for recurring budget
This plugin works on a per-project basis. Each Kimai project has to be configured individually if you want to set it up for recurring budgets.
To set up a project you do the following:
- Open the project edit window of a project.
- Either set a recurring time or money budget (field “Recurring time budget” / “Recurring money budget”).
- Set the interval for the recurring budget. This is set to 1 month by default.
- Set the start date of the next budget interval. This is usually the first day of a month.
- Save the project!
The project is now set up and is considered when the console command is executed.
The budget addition and calculation for all projects is done via the command:
- Please make sure that you set up a cronjob that executes this command on a regular basis.
- The cronjob interval depends on how your projects are set up; e.g. if all your projects get a budget on a monthly basis, then an execution interval of once per month is sufficient.
- With default settings the command considers all project budget intervals up to the execution date.
The budget calculation works in three steps:
- Fetch all projects that are due for a budget credit and credit the corresponding (time or money) budget
- Determine all completed budget intervals and calculate budget statistics
- Send out a budget overview email for every project with the current budget statistics
The command comes with a set of special parameters that let you restrict execution to a specific project or time period or lets you recalculate previous budget intervals (e.g. after you adjusted some timesheet entries for a project).
The full parameter list can be seen with:
bin/console recurring-budget:calculate --help
This plugin provides two new overview tables in the Kimai main menu.
Lists all projects with their currently available (time or money) budgets and total budgets. It also shows the budget credited for each budget interval.
In the “responsible” column you can see the name of the user who is the team lead of the team that is assigned to the project. Currently, it only reads the team lead of the first team in the list.
This view is ideal for companies with multiple projects and project leads. It easily shows where the budget is positive and additional work may need to be done.
Project budgets history
Lists all completed budget intervals and shows statistics for each of them. Here you can track the history of budget credits, how much of a project budget was used and how much was remaining for each interval.
Export recurring budget details
This plugin extends the Kimai export functionality with two views.
Export menu you have the new “Customer budget” dropdown. Here you have two options:
- PDF - Complete
- PDF - Without rates
Both options create an export view with three budget summary blocks for the selected export period:
- Budget summary - Shows all budget intervals as in the “Project budgets history” view (see above).
- Summery per project - Lists amount of time (and rates in “Complete” view) worked per project
- Summary per activity - Lists amount of time worked per activity
This is intended for your internal documents or as information for you customers.

Extract the ZIP file and upload the included directory and all files to your Kimai installation to the new directory:
The file structure needs to look like this afterwards:
After uploading the files, Kimai needs to know about the new plugin. It will be found once the cache was re-built. Call these commands from the Kimai directory:
How to reload Kimai cache
It is not advised, but in case the above command fails you could try:
You might have to set file permissions afterwards:
Adjust file permission
You have to allow PHP (your webserver process) to write to
var/ and it subdirectories.
Here is an example for Debian/Ubuntu (to be executed inside the Kimai directory):
Run the following command:
This will create the required database tables and update them to the latest version.
There are no commands defined in the "kimai:bundle:XYZ" namespace.,
then either the directory has a wrong name (must be var/plugins/RecurringBudgetBundle/) or you forgot to clear the cache (look above).
Updating the plugin works exactly like the installation:
- Delete the directory
Execute all installation steps again:
- Dateien kopieren
- Cache leeren
- Update database with
