Using Staff and Contractors within FreshBooks allows you to collaborate with your team members and improve your productivity. You can set your team members up as either a Staff or a Contractor and each type of team member has their own benefits.
Staff share your FreshBooks account and can be permitted to:
- Track time
- Track expenses
- Create and send invoices
- Create and send estimates
- Manage clients and projects
- Run reports
Adding team members as Staff is ideal if you work closely together. Click here if you want to learn how add a Staff member.
Contractors receive their own FreshBooks account and can:
- Track time on shared Projects – these will appear in your Team Timesheets, logged under the Contractor’s name and Task assigned to them
- Invoice you
Contractors can bill you for their time, and you can access that invoice from your FreshBooks account. You can rebill the Contractor’s time onto your invoice to a Client as well. Adding team members as Contractors is ideal when you only need them to track their time. Click here if you want to learn how add a Contractor
