Calculating Hourly Costs in DayBack Calendar

When you’re tracking project deadlines in DayBack, you can have the calendar forecast project costs as well.

DayBack user Gerhard Huber did that and customized his solution to estimate the cost of a project based on the time required for the task and the resource he’d assigned (each resource has their own per-hour billing charge.) Check out this video he made showing it in action:

Not only is Gerhard updating the project’s estimated cost, he’s automatically updating the event in the calendar and his summary portal in the custom sidebar he built.

That black sidebar in Gerhard’s video is a FileMaker layout object he added to DayBack. Custom sidebars like this are a great way to customize the calendar. You can see more examples of custom sidebars and filters here: custom sidebars for DayBack Calendar.

Very nice work, Gerhard! And thanks for providing the video. (Gerhard is scheduling the design and production of custom interiors and you can see his beautiful work here: Gerhard Huber : werkstätte für einrichtungen.)


If you’d like help implementing modifications similar to this in your DayBack solution, or any other mods, please get in touch and we’ll get you on the schedule.
