A plugin which forces to recalculate the hourly/fixed rate on every timesheet update
Last update: 16 Jun 2019

A Kimai plugin, which forces a recalculation of the hourly and fixed rates for timesheet records on every update.

By default, Kimai will use the hourly/fixed rate which was initially found.

How it works

The good part is: you can change customer/project and activity and be sure, that the correct rate will be used.

The bad part: a manually entered hourly/fixed rate will be overwritten. You HAVE to work with the pre-configured rates on your activities/projects/customers always.

Installation

Compatibility

Plugins should always be compatible with higher Kimai versions, the following list contains the plugin version and the required minimum Kimai version.

Bundle version Minimum Kimai version
0.2 1.9
0.1 0.9

Copy files

Extract the ZIP file and upload the included directory and all files to your Kimai installation to the new directory:

var/plugins/RecalculateRatesBundle/

Or you can clone it directly to the var/plugins/ directory of your Kimai installation:

cd kimai/var/plugins/
git clone https://github.com/Keleo/RecalculateRatesBundle.git

The file structure needs to like like this afterwards:

var/plugins/
├── RecalculateRatesBundle
│   ├── RecalculateRatesBundle.php
|   └ ... more files and directories follow here ...

Clear cache

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

bin/console kimai:reload --env=prod

It is not advised, but in case the above command fails you could try:

rm -r var/cache/prod/*

You might have to set file permissions afterwards:

Fix Kimai 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):

chown -R :www-data .
chmod -R g+r .
chmod -R g+rw var/
chmod -R g+rw public/avatars/

Test Kimai before executing these commands (they are likely not required in a shared-hosting environment). You probably need to prefix them with sudo and the group might be called different than www-data.

Updates

Updating the plugin works exactly like the installation:

  • Delete the directory var/plugins/RecalculateRatesBundle/
  • Execute all installation steps again:
    • Copy files
    • Clear cache
