The Profitability Summary report is similar to the Project Profitability graph in calculating the below:
  • Unbilled - All unbilled Income, time entries and expenses associated to the project
  • Billed - All billed income (draft, sent, viewed and paid invoices and flat rate projects)
  • Costs - Your team member’s costs (time tracked multiplied by cost rate) and expense costs (billed, unbilled and non-billable expenses, not including markup)
  • Profit - Calculated as (billed - cost)
  • Profit Margin - Calculated as ((income - cost) / income) * 100%), displayed if the Billed column is filled out

  • Client - Selecting the client takes you to their client profile
  • Project Name - Selecting the project takes you to a filtered Profitability Details report to review the breakdown of the costs by services and expenses
