Introduction to Time Billing

When you’re out at a meeting and charging by the hour, you need to keep track of the time spent working to know how much to charge your clients. Time Billing can help keep track of how much time for what activity was spent on which client. In addition to tracking billable hours, non-billable time is also trackable (emails, online calls, preparing invoices, etc.).
