Track Overtime Hours and Cost

Some of our customers have been looking for a way to track overtime hours and overtime project cost. This version will enable project team members to enter overtime against project tasks. Project managers can review these timesheet entries (overtime and regular, both) and approve or reject those.

Enter Overtime Hours Project Timesheet in ZilicusPM

Hourly overtime cost rate for users can be set at global level and project manager can set project specific overtime cost rate for each team member.

The project cost will consider overtime cost rate and approved overtime hours of project team members. We have provided reports to track overtime hours for each project, as well as to identify cost implication of overtime as a whole and overtime cost per individual team member.
