We have a freelancer in and they add their time to a job in the normal way via web time sheets. When we come to add their purchase invoice onto the system at a later date their time is effectively on the job twice. Is there a better way to add freelance time to a job?
Solution 1: Set the resource level costing to zero for a resource that is subsequently going to provide you with a bill, then enter the bill as a purchase.
Solution 2: Just treat your freelancers as internal time staff in Synergist, and ignore Synergist when dealing with their invoices – that paperwork would bypass Synergist and just go straight to accounts. A monthly accounting report could match up freelancer invoices received to time posted.
