In Sage HR, if you use projects, you can set a limit of hours for them.
Cases when when you would want to set a limit of hours in a project could be:
You have a project which should not exceed a specific amount of hours based on budget or contract agreements
The project manager needs to control how many hours get invested in a specific project or during a specific time interval
Set up Limit Project Hours
📎NOTE: To be able to do this, you must be any Admin user, as only they can can set up Projects. Admin and Project Managers can edit projects, Project Managers only edit their projects.
On the settings menu click Projects
Click New Project
📎NOTE: To edit an existing project click the dots icon and click on Edit project.
Select Limit total hours for the project to. Note that this field only accepts numbers without decimals. The amount entered will be your project hourly limit.
📌TIP: You can also specify the limits for an existing project from the Edit view.
What do employees see?
Once configured, when an employee saves or submits a Project Timesheet, the time entry is validated in Sage HR against the total amount of hours logged into the project. If the limit has been reached, a message appears informing about this limit being reached and the user will not be able to log the time.
For Project Managers and Admin, in the project settings, the table with all the projects details has an addition in the Hours logged column that allows them to see the total amount of hours employees can log.
📎NOTE: The limit only applies to the employees assigned to the project.
