billable field is used to determine if timesheet entries should be included in invoices,
budget calculations and certain statistics. The API supports filtering for the
billable field as well.
The following permissions define if a user is allowed to set the timesheet field:
edit_billable_own_timesheet- for own timesheet, by default assigned to: Teamlead, Administrator and System-Admin.
edit_billable_other_timesheet- for timesheet of other users. By default, assigned to: Teamlead, Administrator and System-Admin.
Users with the billable permissions will see a dropdown (select-box) with 3 entries:
Yes: timesheet is billable
No: timesheet is not billable
Automatic(default): will lead to a detection of the billable state (explained below)
Each of the 3 level entities
Customer have a billable flag, which defines whether a timesheet for it should be billable or not.
By default, each existing and new entity is billable. If you have certain entities that cannot be billed to customers (e.g. an Activity for internal work),
billable checkbox on that entity should be deactivated. All new timesheet using this internal activity will then not be billable, if they were
created with the
Automatic billable mode.
By default, every new timesheet uses the
Automatic billable detection mode.
That means: after saving the entry, the billable field will be detected by the settings in the timesheet linked
If any of those is not billable, the timesheet is not billable as well.
In other words: in order for a timesheet to be detected as billable, the
Customer needs to be billable as well.
Users owning the
edit_billable_own_timesheet permission can always manually override the
Automatic mode and choose directly whether the
billable form field with CSS is NOT recommended. To remove the field, you should instead remove the permission for the user group.
