Budget ⌥⌘4

Subprojects can have a budget. Edit them here. The Budget of a Project is the sum of all of its childs.
Budgets are shown as a circle that fills up the closer you come to the limit.


Contents Hourly rate
Client holds its Projects custom
inherited from "All Clients"
Project contains one or more Subprojects custom
inherited from it's Client
(if there is no Client the Rate is inherited from "All Clients")
Subproject contains the recording custom
inherited from the Project

A client collects all it's projects and sums up the time and cost. Each client can have a custom hourly rate.

If you have a narrow screen you can hide the Clients column from the interface by clicking the left faced arrow right beside it’s label. Clicking the right faced arrow in the projects column will show them again.


A project can be assigned to a client. When you have completed a project you may archive it. Archiving hides a project from the list. For better distinction a Color may be assigned.


Clients and Projects can be archived using right click or the Edit menu. Archived entries are hidden in the list.

Once an entry is archived it will freeze it’s hourly rates that were used at the time of archiving.

Archived entries can be shown using the Edit menu or the eye button right below the table.



Timed recordings have a duration. The duration is multiplied with the rate that is assigned to it's subproject. Timed entry can be created manually or by starting a timer.


Notes have no cost at all and can be used for work related comments.

To Do

Uncompleted To Dos float on the top of the list. Once completed they are assigned to the day they have been marked as completed.

Fixed Cost

These items are of use when you need to charge your client a fixed cost. There is no rate applied to them.


Labels can be defined in Window/Labels (⌘L) and assigned to any recording using the context menu. Multiple recordings can can be dragged on a label to assign it.
