Bill by Colleague Rate

This feature is out of beta and live for all Karbon Customers. Admins with permission to view Dollar Amounts, can add a colleague’s billable rate in Settings > Colleagues by clicking on the colleague name. On the profile page, you can then specify a dollar amount under Billing Rates. To learn more, read the step-by-step guide.

Control Budget by Amount

This feature is out of beta and live for all Karbon Customers. You can decide whether to manage your budget by time or amount. Admins can select this option in Settings > Time & Budgets > Budgets > Budget Estimates

When you choose to control the budget by amount, even if the billable rate changes on a task, the total budget for the project will remain the same because the budgeted time will automatically adjust. 

To learn more, read the step-by-step guide.

Triage icons 

The Assignments and Cleared icons have been redesigned—they’re now more intuitive.

When you see the Assignment icon with an arrow, it's guiding you to a specific action. The Cleared icon has a box with a check mark, making it clear that a task is completed or achieved.

Utilization report

The Utilization report now calculates capacity based on a standard five-day workweek, with zero capacity allocated for weekends. Learn more about tracking colleagues’ utilization in this guide.

My Week: Work card task automator assignment

If you currently have no assigned tasks, but there are future task assignments through automators, the card for the work item in My Week will display a Task Awaiting Automator Assignment message. If you move the card to Done, the task will return to This Week when the automator activates.
