TotalProjectActualHours need to have separated for Billable and Non-Billable hours

TotalProjectActualHours combines both billable and non-billable hours. When identifying remaining hours in project against an estimate which is only for billable hours there is no way to calculate this without going to a spreadsheet. Two project summary totals are needed for this product to be more effective when reporting: TotalProjectActualBillableHours and TotalProjectActualNon-BillableHours. Since Replicon is able to sum all hours, it would seem to be a simple addition to separate the sums for billable and non-billable when developing that total.

Hi Suzanne,

Thank you for posting your suggestion.
This is a great idea. I agree with your use case and see the value in adding these additional columns to Reports.
I've added this item to my tracker and we will review this in future product planning sessions.

In the interim, if I may suggest a workaround, calculating Remaining Hours should still be doable using a custom column in a report based on the 'Project' template.

The Actual Billable Hours (Selected Dates) will return the total billable hours on the project when the report is run with Date Range set to 'Entire Project'. You could then create a custom column in this report with a formula: ProjectEstimatedHours - ActualBillableHours
This should show the actual remaining hours when the report is run with the date range filter set to Entire Project.

Hope this helps.
