Resourcing Admins can perform this task.

Time and fee categories are classifications of time entry hours. Using the itemized time tracking tool, team members can report actual incurred hours for each category of time. Time & fee categories can include things like travel, meetings, research, or production. Frequent, standard work activities make good categories and provide useful data in reports.

You can create additional, project specific categories in the budget settings for each project. Also in reports, you can group data so you can see how much time is spent on each category.

Standardized categories means everyone is using the same categories; this gives you more useful data.
