Default values

Hala analyzes the preferences/configurations of the next objects: employees, and preferences of the company.

  • Preferences. For example, if you have activated classes and departments in your QBO, Hala will ask questions about those values before adding new time activities. If not, then Hala will not ask them.

  • Employees. Hala will check the rate and if the value billable by default is activated. By default, Hala will use the values from the employee configuration, but you can change them before creating the time activity.

  • Time activity. Hala is checking historical data to make the pre-filling of the values. This is also can have a big benefit for users while they are creating time activity.

Action options

Before creating the time activity, Hala will propose you to validate the data.
