My Hours supports 4 distinct entities: Projects, Clients, Tasks and Team members. You can track time on each and every one of them.
But keep in mind that, you should treat Projects as a set of tasks executed over a fixed period and within certain costs or time contraints. While Tasks can be used in multiple projects and are not limited with duration.
Projects are the cornerstone in My Hours and all other entities are assigned to them. When you create a new project, you can add a client to it, assign tasks and team members, set up a budget and select appropriate billing method.
You can assign multiple tasks to your projects. In case you select a Task based billing method, time logs will be billed with task's hourly rate.

Similar to tasks, you can assign multiple team members to your projects.
