Configure vacation percentages

To be able to calculate the vacation, Collabox needs you to tell it the amount of vacation to which the employee is entitled. In Quebec, the Commission des normes, de l’énergie, de la santé et de la sécurité du travail has established very specific rules regarding vacations based on the number of years worked by the employee. You can refer to their guide by clicking here. Once you have the right percentage, navigate to your employee’s file by clicking on “Configuration” in the top navigation bar.

Then click on “Employees” in the left bar.

Choose the employee to edit. Once in its file, click on the “Rate” tab.


Finally, add the percentage and the effective date. If the employee already had accumulated vacation before the chosen date, you can also add them.


If you want your employees to enter their vacation time in Collabox, see the article Fill out your vacation timesheet in order to know the procedure.

This report shows the projects each employee worked on, the amount of time they spent on them individually and the proportion (in%) of their time that the projects occupied.

The sum of services ratio

As the name suggests, this report is structured around the departments of your business. It lists the departments each employee worked for, the number of hours spent on each, and the billable amounts worked per department.

Note: The above examples were created from the basic settings and the selection of all employees. Depending on the options you choose to create your report, it may contain more or less items.

Progress report

By Progression, Reports, Timesheet report

Do you know the progress report?

It allows you to see at a glance which of your projects are going well and which are in cost overrun. It saves you time because you directly see the progress of the project, the amount sold to the client and the total fees of your employees to date. The report is practical and accessible, it only takes a few clicks and you’re done. Your projects are often in several phases as is the case in architecture or construction. We’ve thought of everything! The progress report becomes a valuable tool since it allows you to follow up by phase!

The progress report is soon at your fingertips, you must first check if an hourly rate has been assigned to your employees and meet certain conditions. If it is already done, continue a little lower.

Configuring the hourly rate per employee

To do this, go to the configuration menu located at the top of the page.

Then you have to go and look for the “employees” section in the left sidebar.

You will then have a list of all the employees in your company. By clicking on a name, you will display the employee’s file. To consult its hourly rate, click on the “Hourly rate” tab.

This page shows you the hourly cost and selling rate for this employee. If no hourly rate is displayed, you must add it by clicking on “Add an hourly selling rate”. The amount of the selling fee is necessary in the calculation of the progress report. Without it, the report will not display. It is also possible to modify an hourly rate for an employee in the project page to indicate a special hourly rate only for this project.

Now that your employees have an assigned hourly rate, you are ready for the progress report. The instructions below tell you which sections to complete to display your progress report.

What to fill in to display a progress report?

Before you can view your progress reports, your projects must contain certain information.

  1. The amount sold: This is the amount you sold to your client for the entire project.
  2. Fees: Your employees should make timesheet entries AND record that they are working on the project. Otherwise, their time will not be counted on the project and the progress report will not be up to date. The hourly cost rate must be configured (see above).
  3. Progress status: When you are in the project file, you must indicate the level of progress of the latter in percentage.

Once the projects are completed with the necessary information, the next step is to display the report itself. You will see, it only takes five mouse clicks.

How do I view the progress report?

To display the progress report, you must first click on the “Reports” icon located in the top bar.

Once in the reports menu, you can find the “Progress report” option in the left navigation bar.

You can then choose the time period you want for the report to be displayed. Collabox will present you with the information of all the projects fulfilling the necessary conditions for the display report. It is also possible to choose the detail of a particular project by indicating it in the drop-down menu.

We also take the opportunity to explain a very practical feature for certain trades such as architects, construction contractors or engineers. This is the progress report by phase.

This type of report allows you to see the progress of a project and the costs incurred in fees vs. the amount sold to the client. It also offers you the detail by phase of the project. Thus, it is possible to see which phases are in cost overrun.

For example: the salaries of employees who worked on plans and specifications and on contract administration and site supervision which may be the cause of the cost overrun on a project.

By Assignment charge, Management, Management reports, Reports

The procedure for accessing the assignment load report is simple. The first step is to go to the menus of the “Management” module by clicking on the icon at the top.

In the left sidebar, you must then click on “Assignment load” to go to the report options page.

It is IMPORTANT to select a future date for the interval. Otherwise, the report will not show you projects with a later delivery date. A good way to do this is to use a period of one week. In other words, take the current date and add a week to it. So you will have an overview of the work to be done in the coming week. This will allow you to better distribute the assignments of your employees.

Here is your report!
