You don’t charge the same hourly rate for the same service to all your customers?
You can modify it especially for a project.

Add a selling rate to a service

By Configuration, Rate

Here’s how to set up a selling rate to a service. This option therefore configures this default rate for all your projects. If you want to set a single rate for a project, you are in the wrong place. Instead, head to this page .

Three steps are necessary to configure this default rate for your services.

  1. We start by clicking on configuration in the top menu bar.
  2. To access the list of services, click on “Services” in the left sidebar.Screen Shot 2016-03-16 at 08.55.50
  3. You will then see your list of services. Just click on the one you want to add a default hourly rate to modify it. Once in the service update sheet, all you have to do is add the amount you want to charge for this service. In the case below, the “administration” service is billed to clients for $ 30 per hour. So every time an employee uses this service in the timesheet, Collabox will automatically calculate the associated amount. Your reports, but also your invoicing will be adjusted.

Once the hourly rate is adjusted, it will be accounted for correctly during your invoicing, but also in the display of reports. To do this, you must first click on “Reports” in the top menu bar.

Then you have to go and find the reports associated with the projects by clicking on “Projects” in the left sidebar.

Finally, you must select the options “Selling price” and “Calculate the amounts according to the service rate”. Collabox will then display the report summarizing your projects according to the new service rates that you have established.
