With Productive you can work on internal projects and see a detailed view of the time spent on each one. Internal projects generate cost, but they do not generate profit (due to your employee’s salaries). The time tracked is automatically added to the overhead. An additional benefit is that you can collaborate with the team on various projects using tasks.
Creating an internal project
Open the Projects menu and click on the “+ Project” icon to add a new project.
You’ll get a choice of creating a client or an internal project. Select “Internal project” and create a new project or create a copy of an existing one.
You can also set up the project to be visible to everyone or only to project members.
Finally, give the project a name and select Create project.
How to use Internal projects
An internal project will behave like the one you’d usually do for a client. You can easily assign different teams to different projects and add tasks.
You can also track time spent working on internal projects - the cost of working on them will directly go to the overhead. Employees can track time on internal projects as they would on projects for clients. This is important to track the workload, efficiency, and time spent on internal affairs and gives you a more detailed cost report.
Convert an Internal project to a Client one
To convert an Internal project to a Client one, simply open up the sidebar, click on Edit project and select a client company from the available options.
You will notice the previously created budget also convert into a budget you see in Client projects.
💡 Clients cannot join internal projects.
