An Activity is a log of work done by a role on a particular project or issue. See the log an activity procedure for help on how to use issues and activities.


  • Fields: date, start, end, activity, description, role

Events should also integrate with a schedule solution, but within the context of records they're used to log chargeable hours for the various roles and jobs.

In the case of logging time, a role can filter the event records down to those during a particular time period and for a particular job or client. The total can then be converted to a currency based on the rate the role charges and then a transaction record created to charge the hours to the client's account. An invoice may or may not be sent at that time.

RecordAdmin needs to have some additions for this:

  • Format money and time columns properly
  • Display totals for money and time columns
  • Simple means of multiplying times by charge-out rates
  • Add an action to send results to EmailPage
  • Add an action to generate an invoice
