Time Billable, Non-Billable would be nice to have the possibility to set Billable or non Billable on a Work Item

    Hello Andreas,

    The billable feature is really simple now - it's just assigned to time tracks. This improvement would create some contradictory cases. Could you provide some details to understand how to make this feature more convenient for you?

    For example, you set PBI as billable and it's parent Feature as non-billable. Should time tracks assigned to the PBI be billable or non-billable?

    Andreas, did you try Budgets feature? It has pretty much the same logic. You can include there work items with all their hierarchy, Iterations and time tracks. And it's also possible to exclude some things from the Budget.

    You could take some budgets (or just one) as non-billable and others as billable. 

    Does this solution fit your needs?

     

    Kind regards,

    Roman

    Hi Roman

    1. The overall setting should only apply to single projects and not to the whole organization. (This would already help a lot).
    2. Regarding the contradictory part. It should be top down overridden. That means if you e.g. have: Themes / Features / Epics / Stories / Tasks backlog hierarchy it should take first the default setting from the project, then from top to down override the setting and mark the timetracks that are in the hierarchy with that Billable or Non-Billable setting.

    The thing with the budget is that include and exclude really means e.g. exclude, but we want to report the non-billable hours as well. So that is not the right approach for that.

    Thank you for taking this into your roadmap. :-)

    Hi Andreas,

    I've added 2 items to our backlog for your feature request.

    The first one is for making Billable by Default setting specific for projects and not to the whole organization (internal id #33471). This feature is not that big and it might be implemented later.

    The second one is for making possible to set Billable/Non-billable to work items (internal id #33471). This feature is pretty big. I see it might be useful, but honestly, its complexity is similar to Budgets feature, so it's not in our roadmap so far.

    We will gather feedback on that. Thank you for your feedback.

    Best regards,

    Roman

    Hi Roman

    Ok, thank you very much for your feedback. Would be nice if you could implement billable, non-billable on work items too, but I see that it might be pretty big.

    Hi Roman,

    if it makes implementation easier:

    We are registering time to tasks exclusively. So instead of having to consider all types of work items, one field on task level, which decides how to popupate billable on task record and being able to change it on time registration dialogue would already help.

    best regards,

    Dieter
