            • Use Assignments?

              How do Assignments work?
              I'm wanting to get the estimated hours like the Budgeted Time & Cost screen.

              I can get the projects.
              Then the time entries for the project.
              Then the tasks for each time entry.
              But this only gives time actually entered.

              It looks like assignments are the thing that links project, tasks and employee together because the ItemId can be of many different types. But with only having:
              <GetAssignmentsURI>*</GetAssignmentsURI>
              <GetItemURI>*</GetItemURI>

              I can't see how we are supposed to use these to get the relationships.

              Can anyone help please?

              • Calculate actual Client Costs

                Client cost is the calculated amount used for billing clients (or charge back) for tasks or projects.

                For each approved time entry, the factors used in calculating client costs are:

                Billable Hours worked: The number of billable hours worked by an employee on the task.

                Task Prorating: A multiplier assigned to the task. Used when you charge clients more (or less) for time spent on specific tasks. This is initially set using the value in the task's prorating field.

                Rate charged: The hourly rate charged (billable rate) for the employee assigned to the task.

                Overtime (OT) charge prorating: An overtime…

                • Getting the Task Assignment ID

                  When I assign a task to a project I get back the assignment ID of the project. But the assignment ID of the project is already known (always P + Project ID?).

                  I'd like to be able to get back the assignment ID of the task so I can use it in subsequent updates (rather than make another service call).

                  Is this possible?

                  Thanks!

                  • Employee Assignment IDs

                    If I know the Project ID and Task ID, is there a single API call that I can use that will return all the employees assigned to the task/project?

                    It seems that I first have to find the Task Assignment ID and then use that to find the Employee Assignment ID's. Ideally I'd like to collapse this into a single call.

                    Thanks for your help.

                    • Assign an employee to a task via API?

                      I'mwriting an integration module that will assign employees to tasks in Dovico from on an external job management system.

                      The Dovico API only seems to allow insert (assignment) of a new task to project or task group, and the update only allows for update an existing (assigned) employee.

                      Can I insert/add (i.e. assign) an employee to an existing Project/Task assignment?

                          Is it possible to filter TimeEntries based on Task? I see there are Project and Employee filters, any plans to include a Task filter?

                              • Calculate estimated Company Costs

                                Estimated company cost is the calculated amount used to determine your company's estimated cost to accomplish a task or project.

                                For each task assignment, the factors used in calculating estimated company costs are:

                                Estimated hours: The estimated number of hours required by an employee to finish the task.

                                Rate of wages: The hourly wage rate (pay rate) for the employee assigned to the task.

                                Estimated company cost = estimate hours x rate of wages

                                  • Curl in Linux format as API Help docs show only Win32 examples.

                                    Within the API help documentation Curl syntax is based on the win32 version of curl. But the syntax is slightly different in Linux; escape characters for the double quotes in the header change to backslashes instead of double quotes.

                                    So try this command syntax,

                                    curl -H "Authorization: WRAP access_token=\"client=ConsumerSecret&user_token=UserToken\"" -k https://api.dovico.com/employees/?version=1

                                    • Token = Admin data access token or Employee App token?

                                      Their are two types of Data Access Tokens:

                                      1 - An admin data access token that provides access to all information in the database.
                                      or
                                      2 - An employee data access token for apps that provides access to only information that employee has access too.

                                      So how do you figure out which token is entered?

                                      >>>>>>>>>>>>>

                                      The following is some C# code for requesting the User's Employee ID and checking to see if it's the admin token or not.

                                      The code leverages the .NET common library found here (can just download the dll and reference that directly – don’t need…

                                      • Extract time entries within a daterange

                                        I am attempting to extract all time entries within a date range using the API. I am following the instructions on the page/location (http://apideveloper.dovico.com/TimeEntries#Date Range Filter (with Get Time Entries)) but it throws an error of version is not recognised. When I switch the params daterange and version I get daterange is not recognised.

                                        I have tried to use %20, + and a space to delimit the date but in all cases the Curl failes. Anyone got any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

                                        curl -H "Authorization: WRAP access_token=""client=xyz&user_token=xyz""" -k https://api.dovico.com/TimeEntries/?daterange=2013-01-01%202013-01-31&version=2

                                        • Project specific Time Entries not received via the API.

                                          We have an implementation of the API, using XML responses, that has been in service for a few weeks now. But today we have new behaviour.

                                          We can receive all the TE's using ...
                                          "https://api.dovico.com/TimeEntries/?version=5&quot;
                                          And we can see that project 1070 has TimeEntries.
                                          But if we use ...
                                          "https://api.dovico.com/TimeEntries/1070/?version=5&quot;
                                          we get no Time Entries back.
                                          Specifically the TimeEntries node has no child nodes.

                                          This is the same on all Projects.
