The Project Analysis page contains crucial information about a project. You can get to a project’s Analysis page by going to Projects, then clicking on the name of the project you need. Here’s a quick rundown of what the Project Analysis page does.
There are two types of project graphs. You can switch between the two by clicking these buttons in the top left of your graphs:
Project Progress Graph
The line graph shows you how hours for the project have accumulated over time. If you have a budget set up, the graph will show you the budget burned compared to the budget total, and will show that in hours or fees, depending how your project is budgeted.
You can see the velocity of how the project approaches budget, and visually see when and where the project goes over budget. Here’s an example with an hours based budget:
Hours Per Week Graph
The other graph is a discrete bar graph: it shows you each week’s hours. It’s a handy way for you to compare each week’s time put into the project.
The graph also shows billable hours versus non-billable hours. Non-billable hours appear in a lighter shade of gray.
Right below the graph is a series of important data for the project: billable vs non-billable hours, budget summary, costs, the billable amount, and the uninvoiced amount.
Project costs consist of labor costs (calculated from the time your team put into the project) and expenses. Next to the costs value, there’s an “i” icon. Click on it to see a breakdown of the costs:
If you budget by project fees, you’ll see an “i” icon in the Remaining Budget section. Click on it to see a breakdown of the budget:
Tasks, Team, and Invoices Tabs
The top portion of Project Analysis shows you the summary. In the bottom half, you can find a table with the summary data broken down by tasks or team members. You’ll also have a tab for all invoices linked to the project.
In the Tasks and Team tabs, you can click each row to get an hours breakdown. For example, clicking on a task name will show you who tracked time to that task, and how much. Clicking on the Spent hours (which are blue) will bring you to the Detailed Time Report, showing each individual entry that makes up that number. Additionally, you can click on the column header to sort by that column.
In the Invoices tab, you’ll find all invoices that have been linked to that project. In this tab, you’ll see only the amount of the invoice that applies to the project you’re viewing.
