One of the features I like to show during a demo is Project Alerts. I always seem to get a positive response when I show this feature.
The project alerts permit you to track time and cost against predefined targets. Example: Alert me when my project’s costs reach $50,000. When your project reaches that amount, the alert is triggered and you are notified via the software’s user interface and optional e-mail. You can create alerts for total number of hours, company or client costs, when hours or costs reach a certain % of budgets, or for billable and non-billable time.
- When a project has reached 90% of budgeted hours
- When a project’s total time reaches 1000 hours
- When the total company costs for a project reaches USD $25,000.
- When the client costs for a project reaches 80% of the budgeted client cost.
- When non-billable time for a project reaches 25% of the total time spent on the project.
Using Project alerts can give the user peace of mind knowing that there are alert in place to let them know when they reached a target without having to figure it out for themselves.
