Non billable Logging in Tempo

Hi there!

There are a lot of instructions across the help pages how to distinguish billable and non billable efforts in Tempo. 

But: some seem to be outdated, some not completely valid, considering the current administrations....


There is something said about the account dropdown which I cannot find at all.

Basically, we're searching for a clear way to define whole projects as non billable and make Tempo to persist for resp. logs no billable hours.

Hi @Stefan Müller , you can link/limit Accounts to Projects.

So, for example, create a non-billable Account and link it to a specific Project so that Log Time can only be done for this non-billable account.

If there's only 1 Account linked to a certain project, then you won't have a dropdown list.

Hi @Dave Mathijs thank you for your answer. Actually, this helps to resolve the UI issue, but there is still the problem (more important): I have no chance to prevent Tempo from putting the billable hours to the amount of logged. This means, I still have to do this manually to have a clean statistic.
