It can be difficult to know which hours have been invoiced and which ones haven't. Timely solves this by letting you mark hours as "billed" on your project's page.

Open a project and navigate to the "Hours" tab to see all your tasks in a timeline view, along with the total amount "billed" or "unbilled" time.

To mark hours as "billed", simply check the boxes next to the hours you'd like to mark as "billed", "unbilled", or bulk update. Select the tasks you want to mark as "billed" or "unbilled" and click "Update".

All hours marked as billed will get a separate look and a new icon to differentiate them from the rest. Notice that billed hours are highlighted in green and have a ✅ 

How can I ensure billed hours won't be subsequently adjusted?

Once you mark hours as billed, the hours become "locked" and can't be changed by Manager or Employee level users. Only Admins on the account are able to adjust hours already marked as "billed".

Can I report on hours Marked as Billed?

You can, directly from the any project’s page and in Reports! Navigate to the “Timesheets” tab of any project to get a list of all the hours, set any necessary filters to pull the right data sample, and then filter that by unbilled hours. From there, select the hours you want to update, click the “Billed” button in the filters, hit “Update and you’re done!

Can I bulk update several hours at once?

Absolutely! Bulk updating hours is great when you need to apply a particular tag to many hours for several different users. 

Use the checkboxes on the left-hand side, just like before. Select which tags you want to apply and hit "Update"Keep in mind that updated tags will override any previously added tags.

You can also bulk update hours across multiple projects using reports in Timely as well. 👍

Note: You can also bulk delete hours if you need to. We recommend that you use this feature carefully as once you delete hours, you can't get them back!
