When invoicing a project, it can be difficult to determine where labor costs are coming from in order to bill phases properly. While purchase orders indicate the job or phase they are on, labor costs do not. This can result in the need to manually download and sort an Excel sheet, which is time-consuming and frustrating.


To resolve this issue, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Project you want to invoice.

  2. Click on the Financials tab.

  3. Under Budget vs Actual, click an Actual amount that has the Labor tag. 

  4. Click the Timesheet link to see where the labor cost came from.

  5. Review the timesheet to determine which job or phase the labor cost is associated with.

  6. Go back to the invoice and adjust the phase or job information as necessary based on the information from the timesheet.

Note: It is not possible to have a distinct view of job costing under project costing. Therefore, the only way to see where labor costs come from is to view labor Actuals and review the timesheet.

By following these steps, you can track job costs and project phases more accurately and ensure that invoices are properly billed.
