Weekly utilization reports with data for month to data, year to date and comparisons for both to last years data. No reports after project completion necessarily but the data is available in report form you’d just have to look at it before you close the code.

Manager, but the utilization reports are sent to everyone in my group from intern to partner.

This is actually a big gap. No one has any idea who’s charging time to what!

Guarantee that someone knows and they just aren’t sharing it.

Report is sent each week to everyone SM - Staff showing charge hours for the year broken out by week for everyone SM-Staff. At a prior firm, this was only sent to Manager and above.

My team gets a utilization report for all members of the team after every time period. We have an app that allows us to access our own time details (time charged by month and category, utilization, hours over standard, total hours, vacation balance).

Stupid question- how long would this job take ?

Hi guys I recently set up my own thing. And had a small & slightly strange request from a client.

They want a playbook/ manual designing up. They have the copy (2000words) and existing design guidelines. So basically its just putting these elements together.

I was thinking two check ins/ rounds of amends.

As a designer how long do you reckon is fair to scope this for? What would you say in terms of timelines.?
