You can select multiple customers and projects. Consecutive lines can be selected by drag-selecting with mouse or with SHIFT key and individual lines with CTRL key.

Reports open automatically below selection menus, everyone to their own worksheet, if "Auto-refresh" Preview mode is selected. If "Refresh on-demand from show-button" is selected, remember to press "Show" after selecting the employees.

Examining reports

If none of the collate checkboxes are selected, tables show the work hours which one employee has registered for specific customer's specific project.

If overtime assignments have been set to apply also to the invoice report and program has been given overtime billing agreement to be used, overtime hours will be displayed on the reports.

Overtime assignments can be changed in Users and Projects tabs. Add an overtime assignment to a project and employee of your choice. The overtime work will be itemized automatically to a billing report when you choose the overtime assignment to apply for the billing report or the billing report and the paycheck. You also need to choose the calculation principle needed so that the program can itemize the hourly rates for overtime work.

When an employee is temporarily assigned to work overtime, he only needs to enter the working time once. Tuntinetti will itemize automatically the overtime work (as long as the overtime assignment is effective) on a billing report according to the given hourly rate calculation principle.

Demo video about adding overtime assignments can be found here: LINK TO VIDEO (Ylitöiden laskutuserittely)

You can view the summary of the billing report's time report by hovering your mouse cursor over the -icon.

When you click the -icon, the time report's full information will be opened in a new window.

Collating settings

Collating makes particularly the assembling of billing reports easier. By choosing both "Collate projects" and "Collate customers" at the same time, you get all work hours and projects employees have done to specific customer to one table.

Collating projects

By collating projects, you will get a table of all employees' working hours for a given project.

Collating customers

By collating a customer's projects, you can collect all the hours logged by employers for a single customer in a single project in one table. Projects are then shown in their own column.

Collating according to headquarters

Provided that both "Include branch companies" and "Collate customers" are selected, customers can be collated according to headquarters by selecting "Group customers according to their main place of business". This way you can create bill for the headquarters.

Employee names on report

Employee names can be displayed on the report, by selecting "Show employee names on report" checkbox, while "Collate projects" is selected.

After selection the system will remember these selections and will automatically restore these selections when customer is selected. Notice that these saved selections are activated even when there is other customers selected.

Selections can be changed and resaved.

Customer specific selections can be skipped by removing selection from [x] Remember customer selections

Editing the report

Managers can edit the data in the reports, if needed. Reports data can be modified by choosing individual row with pen-icon in "Work description and expenses" column.

Expenses can be set by clicking "Work description and expenses" field in the "Edit this time report" window. Expenses are displayed in the tablet and in the report itemization, after saving.

Profitability chart

If additional feature Profitability charts is enabled, profitability calculation and bar chart is displayed below the report. Profitability calculation is particularly useful, when company's profit comes from billable work. Profitability calculation is formed from employees' and projects billing and cost prices.

You can also select the "Show all time profit charts" checkbox in the "Additional options", to show profitability since the beginning.

Report color explanations

Explanations for colors found in the reports can be opened by bringing the mouse pointer above the "Reported employee hours for the selected time period:" text at the start of the reports.

Approve and Bill buttons

Finished report can be approved by pressing Approve button. Approving freezes hours, for example for salary calculations, so that the report can't be edited anymore. Hours and notes can be approved separately.

Clicking Approve button approves hours until that date. Approval can be cancelled simply by clicking Approved button.

Explanation for button colors:

  • Green = reported hours are not approved for any project on this day
  • Orange = reported hours are approved for some projects on this day
  • Gray = reported hours are approved for all projects on this day

Report can be marked as billed by pressing Bill button. Bill buttons are displayed only if billing price (hourly price or price list) has been set for the customer or the project. More information about the pricing settings can be found from Projects and Customers tabs' demo videos (LINK and LINK) and instructions (Projects and Customers).

Rounding of the euro amount on a billing report

It is possible to include the euro amount of the billing prices with the Billing prices additional option.

Tuntinetti calculates the report's euro amounts using exact values of work hours, even though the hours are presented with two decimal places on the report. An exact amount means the following: for example 8 hours and 35 minutes is 8,58 hours. But technically it is 8 and 35/60 hours which is 8,583333... hours. This principle must be taken into account when doing your own calculations.

A useful way to see work time on a report in hours and minutes is to activate the additional option Show work hours also as hours and minutes. This shows work hours also as hours and minutes on the report.

Example calculation

Employee's hourly billing price is 10,50 euros and he has been working for 8 hours and 35 minutes.

The right way to calculate the total amount: 10,50 x (8 + (35/60)) = 90,125. Which can be rounded to 90,13 euros.

Downloading reports
