Mantis Time Tracking and Billing Plugin

Are you looking to add more flexible time tracking and billing to your Mantis Bug Tracker installation? MantisBT Time Tracking and Billing Plugin provides advanced time tracking, billing and reporting features that can easily integrate with your bug tracker.

 

 

Overview

Mantis Time Tracking and Billing Plugin is an easy to install plugin for your bug tracking system. Here are some of the benefits you get right out of the box:

  • Just drop files into the MantisBT plugins folder and activate plugin – no hacking required!
  • Extends the built-in time tracking provided by MantisBT, and thus you will not be losing any previous time tracking data.
  • Increase/decrease tracked time without affecting the original time that was tracked. This allows you to easily track the actual time, but then adjust it to a higher or lower time depending on your billing needs.
  • Mark a bug note as reviewed.
  • Mark tracked time as billable and/or billed.
  • Finely tune permissions for each time tracking and billable field. (time, time adjustment, reviewed, billable, billed, etc.)
  • Generate custom HTML and Excel reports using a wide array of filters. (e.g. report only billable times in the last month)

 

Demo

A live demo website has been setup to allow for quick and easy evaluation of the plugin.

Two user accounts have been made available: developer and manager. In this demo, the developer can track regular time data when creating bug notes, while the manager can adjust the original times and also track which times are billable, reviewed, etc.

In order to get a good feel for how the plugin works, we would suggest that you create a few new issues in any of the projects and attach a few bug notes with corresponding times. You can then run the reports under “Pokret Billing” tab as a developer or as the manager to get a feel for how the reports look like and how different permissions allow developers to see the basic hours, while the manager can view the adjusted hours.
