Info

If you are new to Projector, then you probably have an implementation consultant. Your implementation consultant can help you with data loading. If you are already an established Projector client, this page will teach you about what kinds of data can be bulk loaded. Perhaps you have been acquired, grown quickly, or rolled another part of your organization into Projector. This help page will help you get your data loaded quickly and correctly.

Some of these choices are free and you can do yourself. Others are paid and require that you send us a spreadsheet of data to be added to the system. Labor is charged on a T&M basis.

Time Cards

You can upload a csv file of time card data on a resource-by-resource basis through Time Card Import. That is to say, first you will load Jim's time cards. Then you will load Sally's time cards. These time cards then go through the normal approval and invoicing process and are treated like any other time card in Projector.

If you have many time cards for many resources you can load them as For Reporting Only (FRO) cards or as regular time cards. FRO time cards cannot be edited and are only used for reporting purposes. 

Cost Cards

Similar to time cards, you can upload a csv file of cost card data on an expense document by expense document basis through Expense Import. That is to say, first you will add cost cards to expense report ER011111. Then for vendor invoice VI033333. 

If you have many cost cards for many resources you can load them as For Reporting Only (FRO) cards or as regular cost cards. FRO time cost cards cannot be edited and are only used for reporting purposes. 

Users

Users are allowed to log into Projector and interact with the system. They often require a resource too.

Resources

Resources are allowed to submit time, submit expense, and be scheduled on projects.

Clients

Clients are associated with projects and eventually invoiced for work performed.

Engagements

Engagements represent a high level deliverable. You cannot create engagements until you have clients in place.

Contract Line Items

Contract line items describe the terms required to deliver an engagement. For example, a Fixed Price contract for the first 100 hours of work and a T&M contract for all hours over 100.  CLIs require an engagement before they can be created.

Projects

Projects are used to deliver a contract line item. Projects require a CLI before they can be created.

PTO Balances

Time off balances are managed on a resource-by-resource through the Time Off Reason Editor

Holiday Schedules

If you have many locations, creating a holiday schedule can be pretty tedious.
