If the timesheets (also if you use “flat amount”) and/or the expenses and/or the private mileages are assigned to the project then the project margin is calculated as predicted amount. As here shown in the project summary report:
BUT we do only show the margin until the projects data aren’t assigned to the invoice! Because if you attach the project timesheets, the assigned expenses, the assigned business mileages (the assigned private mileages aren’t allowed to be attached to the invoice) and the items to the invoice – then the project margin is calculated as real amount according to the real sales amount and we will show it in the dashboard widget:
Until the project data aren’t attached to the invoice – it is a predicted project margin and soonest the projects data will be attached to the invoice – it wil be a real project margin.
We will referesh the data of the “Project Margin” widget on the dashboard every day at 12:00 o’clock and at 00:00 o’clock by your current account time zone.
