Automation of continuous projects

This section provides the settings for automatically generating cost estimates for continuous projects. A continuous project is a project where the source files are updated with newer versions, in order not to create multiple projects with the same, constantly evolving files.

Source files can be replaced multiple times in a single continuous project. Taking that into account, choose when the history of project metrics, statistics, tracked time and costs should be saved for continuous projects. Then, select the condition when cost estimates are generated for the project history.


The options to generate costs for project history

You can set whether you want to use zeros for missing rates or times when linguists do not have rate cards or time tracking is not set up. There is also an option to choose a “dummy linguist” whose rate card settings can be used for automatic cost estimation, either for the entire workflow or only where no linguist is currently assigned.
