Assign billable hours/money to tasks

Would be nice to be able to assign currency to specific tasks and/or projects. If I'm working on a project for a client, it's nice that I can track the time I spend on specific tasks, but why do I need to calculate the amount to charge to the customer by hand? Take the number of course worked, multiply by the amount I charge. Would be more convenient if I can assign my hourly charge to specific tasks (optional), and those tasks would also show/track the amount I've earned so far based on the time interval.

    I agree. I would love to assign a dollar amount per hour to each task and have it total up for me at the end of each project.

    I agree with what they say. Keep this in mind for a new update! It would be fabulous for people who are freelance.

    New to the Timelime team, and I agree.. being able to input hourly costs to tasks and subtasks would be huge. Even better to include them in the CSV export. Would be a great update, because at a glance I can see what I'm generating on a given project while I'm working on it.

    Hi Les, Robert, Byron, and Matthew,

    I agree these features would be good for a lot of users who have to send invoices.

    The good news is, I am currently working on billing features for Timelime. Those will be part of a huge update to the app next year.

    If you have any specific wishes regarding billing in Timelime, please let me know.

    Thank you,

    Are you still working on the billing feature, or did I miss it?

    I wanted to chime in to agree with the addition of this feature. I'm testing Timeline right now and this is one feature that I am already missing from my previous, no longer supported, time tracking app. If this feature makes it's debut soon, it would put Timeline at the top of my list. Can't wait...
