When creating a new project, you can enter the estimated income for the project. Think of this as the project’s budget, or how much you expect to make from the project. In the budget graph, Cushion will show the project’s remaining estimated income as a dashed bar.
Currently, the estimated income can be a flat fee or a retainer. If the project has a flat fee, you can keep it simple and enter a single amount.
If you’re working on a retainer, or using time-based pricing, you can select an interval. Cushion includes several intervals, like daily, weekly, and monthly, but it also has a custom interval.
In case you’re working on a custom pay schedule, like every two weeks, you can select every... and specify your custom interval.
After specifying the estimated income for a project, Cushion will add the estimate to your budget graph as a dashed bar. As you create invoices for the project, Cushion will replace the dashed bar with a solid bar.
