Administrative Time - Non Billable RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi folks,

    I am trying to understand, why MSPS 2010 will allow only Planned vs Actual for Adminsitratime. And when I pull the data from the RDB, the actual work is being displayed as Actual work Billable?

    What if I have a Non-Billable Adminsitrative Time? Anybody come across this scenario?

  • Have a look at this blog, it has explained concepts of timesheet as well as at the bottom of page under comments has RDB Query (Explained) on how to fetch the relevant data

    Let us know if this helps, and if anything is missing we would be happy to help

  • Sunil,

    I have already read this article, and looked at the RDB query previously.

    My issue is not about "how" to pull the data from RDB, but more of a design/functional one.

    Here is the summary of my question: How would you report "non-billable" administrative time on your timesheet?

  • I am not sure i am understanding correctly, but if you are just looking for the process on how you enter non - billable hours in timesheet, then follow this proces

    Server Settings >> Timesheets Settings & Defaults >> the check box for "The timesheet will use standard Overtime and Non-Billable time tracking" is checked, now navigate to Timesheet page, on the ribbon, under Show / Hide Tab - Check the Non - Billable check box, which in turn will add a row to the existing timesheet , where in you can record non billable  

    Let me know if i am missing something here :)

  • :) that's exactly my point. You can add "Non Billable/Overtime" for "Standard" , but not "Administrative", (with the confg you mentioned).

    Trying to undersdtand the logic behind this...

  • This is by design. Use a utility project to track billable and non billable administrative work.

  • Thanks Gary..I guess that brings us back to square one of using Admin Projects then :).

    Anyway, appreciate your insight on this.
