About

WorkFerret is an application for tracking billable work done for different clients, generating invoices, and recording payments. It is essentially a special-purpose accounts receivable.

Status: Working version originally written in MS Access 97 has been ported to web as a MediaWiki extension and used by the developer for several years. Code needs to be made available on GitHub.

Features

  • Ways of entering work done:
    • Stopwatch for timing a work session
    • Manually correct start/stop times
    • Manually enter adjustments to work session total (add or subtract)
      • e.g. to allow for distractions (minus), or forgetting to start the clock at first (plus)
    • Manually enter start or stop times
    • Manually enter total time in session
    • Manually enter flat amount to charge
  • Allows different hourly rates
    • Keeps track of which rates are used for which clients (with client-specific description)
    • Global rates also listed for all clients
  • Generates invoices (TO DO)
    • keeps track of which sessions have been invoiced to prevent double-billing for a session
    • automatically totals session costs, doing whatever math is needed
    • formats as HTML table (copy/paste into word processor document with letterhead) or as PDF ready to send

Future

  • Should be able to sync with payments in FinanceFerret (using a pre-designated category or equity account)
