Currently in projects we do not support Service expense products, neither under work tab nor under expense tab.

Not as a work, because time confirmations are not allowed for expense products and not as an expense, because only expense accounts can be entered on tab “Expenses”currently.


This was never developed in standard ByDesign system so we considered it as new requirement so submit all new requirements on Customer Influence Forum at
