Issues when creating estimates

Hi there,

I have noticed a few problems when attempting to create estimates, please
see points below.

  • There is no way to specify whether to display the associated project
    name but it defaults to not showing it

  • When specifying estimate items, I cannot seem to get this working. My
    JSON is similar to the following { “estimate_items” : { “estimate_item” : {
    “quantity” : 1,… } } }. Any ideas why this would not be working?

  • For the unit type, I can only specify a measure of time, what if I
    want to specify -no-unit- for example?

I look forward to hearing from you.

Chris.

Any thoughts on this one??On Wednesday, 10 April 2013 11:36:44 UTC+1, Chris wrote:

Hi Chris,

Sorry for the late response.

You can add a “show_project_name”: “true” attribute on the estimate to
show the project name in the Other Information section.

The expenses documentation needs some love as it’s not as accurate as it
could be. “estimate_items” should be an array, similar to the following:

{

… some other attributes …

“estimate_items”: [ { … estimate item attributes … }, { … estimate

item attributes … } ]

}

  • For the unit type, I can only specify a measure of time, what if I

The “item_type” can actually be any value you can specify in the app,
including “-no unit-”.

Best regards,
