Add the ability to categorize/earmark effort.
Currently there is no way to easily identify billed effort or charge different rates without creating redundant tasks. The following are some features which would make the application much easier to use.
1) After exporting task efforts it would be beneficial to be able to mark those efforts as billed. I currently create a stop and start effort entry to show where I last exported and billed the efforts.
2) Mark an effort with no charge or enable the ability to change the billing rate at the effort level. I currently create a redundant task with a no charge category and create redundant efforts.
3) Earmark the effort as an effort performed by a specific resource such as an architect, engineer, etc. (currently have to perform the same workaround as in item 2)
All of the above could be accomplished by extending the schema to add a separate resource table with budget entries and a category or similar tables.

Clarification-- that is extend the schema to add the suggested tables at the effort level.
