The General Company Information section provides you with general options to configure your ClickTime account. These options can be found in the first section of the Company --> Preferences page.
While these fields do not typically need to be changed after initial set-up, this article will help you understand the different options you have available.
The Company Name field displays your current organization's name, and also allows you to change your organization's name at any time.
The Date Setting option allows you to select how dates are displayed in ClickTime. You can select dates to be displayed either as month/day/year or day/month/year.
The Currency setting allows you to select the currency and symbol or abbreviation for that currency. There may be more than one symbol or abbreviation associated with a given currency. You can also find more options about currency exchange rates by clicking on the Currency link at the top of the page.
Enabling time billing features allows you to use ClickTime's billing rates features for time entries. Disabling this feature will cause all billing rate and billable/non-billable information not to be displayed. If your company creates estimates using amount billed, time billing features cannot be disabled. For more information on ClickTime's Billing Rates, please see the Billings Rate Overview.
Enabling Project Estimation allows you to use ClickTime's project estimation features. This will cause an estimation section to be added at the bottom of your Company Preferences page with additional configuration options. For more information on ClickTime's Estimation options, please see here.
