Suggestion - Task hours limit

Suggestion - allow project managers to set an hours limit on the Task Information screen (or to check a box to make the "Estimated Hours" a not to exceed limit). That way if a user tries to enter hours on their timesheet that exceed the limit, the entry will be rejected. This feature would prevent employees from over-charging hours budgets without gaining authorization. Even though the hours spent progress bar is visable on the time entry sheet, it is often overlooked. Allowing managers to set a hard limit that employees can't exceed would solve this problem. This is particularly important for services companies that often work on hourly Not-To Exceed budgets from their clients.

With regards to the above could you confirm what is being planned and what the time frame would be.  This is something we would like to incorporate into our projects/tasks.

Great idea. Is adding a timer lock in Replicon normal site and app a possibility?  I suggested this feature in the post below regarding task management.  I think I would be really helpful for companies like ours that have not to exceed contracts and help keep the employee to the hours allotted to complete work,

Zoe - please take a look at my feature request below... if it seems like it would also benefit your company please give it a like! Thanks!

Hi All,

Limiting the time entry after the Estimated hours are reached is now possible on our custom timesheet format through adding a validation rule. Please do let us know in case you need further details and we will have a call arranged by our support team

Thanks,
