Get an overview of your projects

Uniconta’s project module allows users to manage costs, revenue, work in progress and hourly consumption on individual projects. Each time users create a new project, they can choose from a range of different templates to enter their customer data. This gives users a consistent view of customer data, all gathered in one place in the Project module, making it easy for them to manage their customer portfolios.


Work in progress

When a project journal is posted, Uniconta will post work-in-progress (expected revenue) based on hours, materials, and costs. Accounts and offset accounts for these entries are set up on the project groups. If these accounts are not set up, Uniconta will not post work-in-progress to the general ledger. Uniconta project can still run without integration to the general ledger, if preferred.

There is a check box on project transactions called "work-in-process”, showing whether or not the work-in-progress is posted to the general ledger. Upon invoicing, the work-in-progress is settled in the general ledger so that only the projects’ actual income is shown both in project and the general ledger.

Uniconta Time – Time registration

Uniconta Time is an addition to Uniconta’s project module and is designed to register employee time sheets, track work-in-progress and perform billing. The module allows users to set up standard calendars and price matrices for each employee and register employee hours as a service charge.

These standard calendars and prices can then be used in the “Time sheet” journal under Project/Journals or under each employee. Employees can close periods once their time sheet is complete and the periods can then be approved by a manager. Upon approval, the time sheets will automatically be posted to a standard Uniconta project journal. Employees are able to re-open periods that have not yet been approved.


Planning allows users to plan accross projects, types, pay types and employees. The module allows users to get an overview of the realised numbers vs. budget, normal times and deviations thereof. This is all built up around a pivot-table. Uniconta also includes work area, expanded task management, and assign possibility to activity management with the detailed degree that is worked on in the individual company and/or on the individual project. If users want to edit the budget or move from one employee to another they can do so by simply moving, adding or editing the transaction. The budget will then be updated with the change and the result thereby shown visually. Last years realised numbers can simply be copied over to a new budget so that users can the budget / planning can begin. If the hourly rate of an employee is edited during the planning phase, then the budget can easlily be updated with the new rates.

Root project

When working with projects with several sub-levels, users can get an overview of the projects under a ‘Root project’. Here users can see what is at the top of a project when the project is an underlying project. This means that when a user filters or ‘groups by’ a Root project, then all sub-projects under a Root project can quickly be viewed.

Create a 0-invoice (zero) in project

In order to close a month, projects need to be invoiced. We also have a function called ’Create 0-invoice’. This is a way to close the month without sending an invoice to the customer. Uniconta will still create invoice transactions in the invoice table with an invoice number of 0. This way users can see that Uniconta has created and posted a 0-invoice. In the project number series users can create an inventory item number that can be used to show the difference between ‘on account’ amount invoiced and the amount that should in fact be invoiced.

Project invoicing sub-projects

When creating a project users can create a ’master project’. If this is set up then new projects are a sub-project to the master project. Users can set up whether sub-projects should be invoiced on the main project or invoiced individually. Several of Uniconta screens also include a ’include sub-project’ menu item when they are opened from the local menu.


Invoicing is performed in the customer module, which functions in a similar way to simple word processing. Lines can be entered with or without item numbers. Text can be up to 1,200 characters. Users can select which hours should be billed and which should not.

It is always a good idea to keep track of the projects that a company is running. Uniconta’s Project module allows users to get an overview of costs, revenue and hourly consumption on each individual project. This results in a project management overview showing which projects are profitable and which projects are underperforming.

Overview and management

The different activities or product types included in a project can be split into any given number of categories. These categories can then be grouped into sub-categories if required.

These categories and sub categories then form the basis for statistical analysis on the project card, whereby users can follow the progress of a project. This information can also be viewed in Uniconta’s Dashboard.

The project list

Upon creating a project, users can create the customer’s master data, which will be included in the project list. All values can be edited on each project, such as payment and delivery terms, modes of delivery, other sellers etc.

The project can easily be inserted into a hierarchy of importance in the master project field. Projects can be created via templates, ensuring uniformity and inclusion of all required information.

Invoice in the project module

The Project module is fully integrated with the General Ledger, Customer, Vendor and Inventory modules. Invoicing is therefore performed from the Customer module. The Customer module features are similar to simple word processing so it is easy for users to determine which hours are billed and which are not.

“We minimize the risk of errors and save time. For example, the Uniconta project module makes it easy to compare budgets to the current status of a project. This means that we can intervene early if particular challenges occur during a project. It has also become far easier making a post-calculation on a completed project. In the past, it easily took 20-30 minutes. Today we just press a button and we have it in less than five seconds.”
