offer an option to automatically reset the budget job hours on the first day of each new month. We need to track our client hours monthly.
Offer an option to have budgeted job hours reset automatically on the first day of each month. This allows a company to easily track the budgeted number of monthly hours based on annual retainer contracts set up based on number of hours per month and charge a premium fee for overages.
Hey everyone, just wanted to do a quick update on this idea. It really sounds like separate functionality from what our current labor budget does. Definitely something we can build, just makes more sense to be a separate function.
Our current one is built for the life of the job, not intervals within it. And even if we did reset it you’d have to change it say from 50 hours one month, to 100 hours next, to 150 hours. On top of that it isn’t time based at all.
This might get a little easier with our new Customers feature coming out soon. With this, you can just have a different job for each recurring job you have for a customer. So one for January with budgeted hours, one for February, and so on.
Please let me know of any other ideas and keep voting!

To Cliff's point below, you definitely can make labor budgets with custom decimals places and it will work fine!
I want to be able to say a job should take an hour and a half instead of being forced to round to a whole number.

this would be helpful for those of who bill hourly or monthly based on set number of hours.

Hope all is well. One of my employees has a replacement phone, we are having trouble getting him back on the system. It says, that the password or user name is incorrect. Any ideas?
Kind Regards, Ahmet
