Brunov99 created the topic: Category field signification and usage
I do not understand what the category field stand for.
Does it serve to divide the project into several stages ? In this case the category must be attached to the project and not the reverse.
Does it serve to define several typical steps that are used in several projects?
I thank you specify what you had in mind when you created it and how to use it.
May be it could be fine to add a field with the theorical end date (or amount of time) of the project. In that way i kwow if i'm late or not and if the charged costs
It might be interesting to add a field with the theoretical end date of the project to see if deadlines are met or not and if the cost charged is correct.
Also, in the case of a maintenance sum, it would be interesting to have a field value that changes dynamically based on time spent on the project.
Let me explain: the customer pays € 250 for maintenance costs. Every time I work on the project the amount of time worked is removed on the € 250 and when the field is 0 I know I need to start a new billing.

Category field is quite misleading, I know.
I was thinking about giving it another name, but i didn't find one, so any help is very appreciated
The idea behind it is to create a kind of "price categories".
For example, if I have to convert a template, usually I will charge 200$; so when i start a new project, Tracktime will suggest me the overall price for that kind of work.
In a far far away future, we should have a report, where we can see the average revenue for category.
Having a deadline field should be usefull, and the "customer credit" field, too.
Let's see if we can insert it into the next version.
