Threshold Warnings

In Abtrac, you can enable timesheet threshold warnings at the job and/or task levels.

If you have assigned a fee estimate to your job or task, then you can enable Timesheet Threshold Warnings.

Timesheet threshold warnings are budget notifications that pop up within the timesheet entries screen when the threshold value specified is reached or exceeded.

These warnings can be applied to the entire fee budget for the job, or at the task level.

Default threshold warnings can be set up from system settings.

At any stage, a user can still enter time against the task and job.

Because of this, when you enable timesheet warnings, it is a good idea to let the staff know about them, and ask them to contact you if they receive a warning when entering time.

There are quite a few variations on the ‘basic’ timesheet entries report with options for lots of different filters, groups and sub-groupings.

It is often used in conjunction with the Manage WIP Screen, or the Unbilled Work Quick Summary to determine what can be billed each month.
