Before you start logging time, you need to set up a Contract and an account for the issue you are planning to utilize. After creating the issue, you should edit it and select the "ContractsPro" option to display the widget on the screen, as shown below.:

  • Date: the date when the activity is being logged.
  • Worked Hours: the number of hours you are logging at that time.

The system also shows a progress bar that allows users to check how is the progress of that particular account. It is calculated using the hours defined on the Contract for that particular account minus the logged hours entered by the team members. The progress bar can be displayed in 4 colors:

Grey
  • Light Blue: No hours were logged for that account in this issue.
  • Dark Blue:
Indicates
  •  This indicates there are hours logged and the progress is less than 100%.
  • Green:
Indicates the
  •  This indicates the progress is 100%. It means all planned hours were consumed for that account.
  • Red: Progress exceeded 100%. It means that hours were logged after the planned hours are completely consumed.

Tip

This feature is particularly important to avoid exceeding the limits of contract accounts. When the users can see how many hours are remaining to complete the planned time, they can alert other users or team leaders and avoid situations like invoicing customers with unexpected extra hours.
