Timesheet Portal Standard Edition Features

Standard edition applies to businesses that don't operate like a recruitment agency. Standard edition gives you the ability to track time for tasks and sub-tasks (or projects and project activities), and provides, advanced rates management as well as human resource management capabilities. If you are an agency but manage your own projects and need the ability to break down a project into sub-tasks and want access to project management features such as budgeting, then you should be looking at standard edition.
