In this section we will cover activities in Moment. Activities are a very important component of the workflow in Moment that allows you to have control and overview of a project.

You can add as many activities as you like to a project. As soon as you have more than one activity, you must choose between the different activities when registering hours in the timesheet. To add a new activity, go to Projects > name > Activities and click + Add activity.

As you can see in the picture, the activities overview shows the title, duration, estimated, used hours and hours invoiced of the activities. Activities, in order to be invoiced, need to have a price model defined.

After clicking on + add activity a creation window will open, in that window you fill in all of the information you see suitable for the desired activity.

You are able to configure the activity after you've created it, this can be done by pressing the pen symbol as showcased in the picture below. When you click on the pen (edit), a similar window to the task creation window will appear.

Activities settings

Here you can choose a title for the activity.

Price models and activities

In order to invoice activities in Moment, they need to be have a price model defined. However, one must be aware of the interaction between price models and activities. For instance, you can invoice separately both activities and price models, but these are mutually exclusive, meaning you can only choose to either invoice an activity separately or a price model separately, but not both, if they are linked together.

As you can see from the picture below, invoices containing activities that have "invoiced separately" active will appear with a green and black paper icon next to it.

The conclusion that can be drawn from this is that it could be a good idea to have activities marked for the option to be invoiced separately. At least for reporting purposes.

Activities can also be invoiced to separate customers. For instance, if a certain project involves the rental of equipment, or renting of rooms, you can set up one activity for every customer. This way, these activities and customers within a project can share a common price plan, but be invoiced separately.
