Best practice: Time tracking billable time vs overheads

Hi Forum Members,


This is strictly speaking not a FM-specific technical question. I’m looking for some best practice guidance…hope it’s ok to ask that kind of question here. If not, please let me know.


Currently we track time for work done on a job. Jobs are categorized as billable (work we do for clients) and non-billable (in-house projects).


Going forward we would like to also capture (and report on) our odd bits of non-billable time — the bits and pieces that seem to chew up so much of one’s day.


One way to do that would be to have a (or a few) ‘fake’ jobs to serve as anchors/baskets for those time slips. But that seems quite clumsy.


Can you suggest a more elegant approach?
