How I can give hours costs timesheets and pass them to cost accounting?

I'm using version 7 on Windows for Open ERP application I'm doing my business, and I wonder if there is any way to give a cost related to payroll wage or the hours charged in timesheets and relate this cost with the cost accounting system. I do not want the customer bill this time, what I want is to know my costs. Is it possible with this version of Open and in this environment?

Thanks in advance and sorry for my English

Go to

Human Resources -> Employees -> Select Employee -> Go To HR Settings -> Product

Define a product as service where unit of measure is hour. Define a cost price and a sale price.

After a user is adding a Timesheet Activity you will see the cost on

Reports -> Human Resources -> Timesheet Analysis

Good afternoon:

I tried your solution and it has worked. Thank you very much! Now I'll try what I suggest here to be an internal cost than public

Thank you all!

Does this work in case you enter the time from Human Resources -> My Current Timesheet choosing an analytic account? It doesn't seem to work in my v7 environment. It does work when you key in the time through Projects -> Timesheets. Looking at the analytic journal items generated from these inputs, the only difference is whether the cost amount is captured or not ("Human Resources -> My Current Timesheet" does not capture the cost) and everything else seems to be the same. I wonder why the behaviors are different.

If you want to keep the employee cost confidential (out of the product list) you can install the module hr_contract. This allows you to add a contract to an employee in which their wage can be specified.

Thank you very much!! I have to try
