Project Profitability by Time Costs Report - Overview

Hi there Community,

I am trying to find an appropriate report that will show all of my 'Projects' with the time activities against them including the cost of the time activities, against the income of each project. I am looking to be able to run this report each month, for that month. 

 

We run approximately 60+ projects each month and I am trying to get an overview of the profitability of these projects without having to go project by project to get this information. 

 

Ideally the columns would be something like this:

Project/Customer | Employee | Duration/Time Spent | Time Cost | Income 

 

Can someone suggest a report or selection of reports that would offer this information?

Hi FairBrotherA, 

 

What an excellent question! Thank you for the detail. 

 

As the project function is relatively new to QuickBooks Online, there's room for improvement on project reporting.

 

At the moment, project report can only be access in the project tab and time cost column is not available. You can consider using Time Activities reports such as Time Activities by Customer Detail and Time Activities by Employee Detail in the report tab to access relevant data, however, project is not tracked on those reports unless you have Class or Location assigned to project as well. 

 

I would encourage you to submit an in-product feedback for this, so we can continue on improving our product and service for you. Here is how:

Thanks Zac,

 

Unfortunately these reports don't give me quite the information I'm looking for, I have logged a feedback request as suggested.

 

Is there a report that would show me even just my time costs in any format? Not just time activities?

Thank you for the feedback FairBrotherA, 

 

Please give this a try:

 

Projects tab

- Click on the name of the project 

- Under overview, 

- Look under "Costs"

- Click on " Hourly time cost"

 

Please let us know if this report gives you what you were looking for. 

 

Thank you.

Hi Zac,

 

Thank you again for your input, unfortunately this still requires us to go project by project to attain this information; with 60+ projects active at any time this just isn't a feasible solution.  We really need a report that will give us a complete overview of current active projects. 

 

I have provided feedback as suggested. Is there any way to track how this feedback is received and if it is actioned or in the pipeline for an action on a later release?

Hi FairbrotherA,

 

Sorry to hear that this was not a solution for you. Thank you for providing the feedback to our development team that is much appreciated.

At this stage, the in-product feedback request is just for our product development team to understand the common and recurring enhancement request.

In terms of ongoing communication, we do not currently have that option, love the idea though and will make a recommendation.

Thank you for your understanding.
