Default Sales Category for Time Entries: Enter a Sales Category to which you would like to assign Time Entries.  The default Sales Category set by Design Manager is "TIME", but you may use any Sales Category to classify your Time Entries.  This Sales Category controls which General Ledger Account is used for record revenue from invoicing employee time.  To search for a Sales Category, click on the Search Button in the lower left corner.


Only Allow Entries to be Joined to Items with Default Sales Category: This option will only allow Time Entries to be joined to existing Items that have the same Sales Category as indicated in the option above.

Create Item Options

User Can Choose - Allows the user to select if they wish to add a New Time Item or Join the Item to an Existing Item.
New Item (each time entry item is a separate line item) - This option will create a new Specification/Reference number Item for all Time Entries.
Join to Time Item - Selecting this option will automatically set a new Time Item to be joined to an Existing Item.
Only to Un-invoiced Dated Item: When selected, new Time entries will not be allowed to be added to an Item that that is not Dated within the Dates entered into the Time Item Specification.
Automatically Create Monthly Item: If no Month Time Items exist in the Project for the month you are entering new time entries for, the system will create one for you.  Each Month a new Time Item will be added automatically and all new Time Entries added within that month will join to that Item.


Allow Import to Override Design Manager Rates: When using the Time Import feature, Design Manager will automatically use the time rates from its defaults that are set within the Project, Employee & Activity. Selecting this option will allow you to override the Design Manager default rates when importing your time entry file.  The rate entered into the file imported will be used for all Time Imports. Note: If your file does not include a rate for an entry the system will record it using the Design Manager default rate, if available.
