It would be great to have the Sales Contracts back in the Community version, which we had in v8, but got yanked.

Hi Fabien, looks very good!! .

I suggest to include a label to define the reasons why the hours are not billable. This is in order to allow better analysis.

As you might know, one of our priorities for Odoo 11 is to make the user interface perfect for services companies.
When we have a big task, we used to invite the community for workshops in our offices to discuss the specifications
(as we did for inventory, manufacturing and accounting).

This task is a little bit small than the other ones, so we will just work by email.

Here is a draft specification of what we plan to do:
  • easier setup & initial discovery for services companies
  • easier control, dashboard and auto-reminder for timesheets (control of teams & billing rate is a challenge when you deploy timesheets in new companies)
  • project dashboard: billing rates, resource allocation, forecasts vs timesheets, ...
  • better KPIs
  • fix usability issues
Feel free to comment in the above Google doc:
  • Did we forget some critical features?
  • Can we improve some usability stuff?
  • Is it clear (the spec is still draft and was initially internal; probably not very clear)
