Tempo - Overtime Management


We are looking into using Tempo to track employee time worked on issues, and are struggling to find a suitable way to track overtime. We have the following requirements :

Users should be able to log overtime worked and overtime recovered in their timesheet
Timesheet Approver should be able to report on users' overtime balance
Users should be able to specify if overtime is to be billed or not

We have tried playing with Worklog Attributes ("overtime" checkbox - doesn't seem great in terms of being able to report and calculate number of hours) and creating a separate "Overtime" project with "Overtime work" and "Overtime Recovered" issues (messy - have to log work twice - once to denote the issue and again to denote that it is overtime)

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

It seems this is currently not possible, but an open feature request:

did you find something ?

Anyone knows how to do this?

Please, reopen this problem.  

Should be possible and not difficult:

1. Sum all logged work time recorded on a given Issue / Project

2. Sum up "Original Estimate" on the Project (or take from the Issue)

3. Subtract "Original Estimate" from logged time - this is the time your employee Saved (if negative)  or Lost (if positive)

4. Display a simple table: The Issue / The project, Logged work, Saved/Lost

Please, we (and many may follow) will be leaving Tempo, because it does not show Profit and Losses on a set of issues.
