Deltek Vision FAQs

Q: How can I integrate Deltek Vision phases into Mosaic?

Deltek Vision supports up to 2 levels of phases for a project.

Legacy Deltek Vision Integrations

  • Legacy Deltek Vision integrations (connected prior to December 2023) on Mosaic only supports 2 levels of Deltek Vision phases, following this project structure:
    • Project (Deltek Vision Project)
      • Phase (Deltek Vision Phase)
        • Work Category (Deltek Vision Task)
  • If you are interested in turning on Subphases to integrate the lowest level of phases from Deltek Vision, please reach out to your Customer Success Manager.
  • If you use 2 levels of phases (Deltek Vision Phases and Tasks) for project planning, you should consider using subphases.

New Deltek Vision Integrations

  • New Deltek Vision integrations on Mosaic (connected after December 2023) are designed to automatically support up to 2 levels of Deltek Vision phases, following this project structure:
    • Project (Deltek Vision Project)
      • Phase (Deltek Vision Phase)
        • Subphase (Deltek Vision Task)

Q: How does Mosaic determine if a project or time entry is billable or non-billable?

Mosaic fetches projects and time entries data from Deltek Vision.

In Deltek Vision, Charge Type values are defined at the project level and inherited by all time entries associated with it. Mosaic maps Deltek Vision Charge Type values to its own Billable field as follows:

Deltek Vision Project Charge TypeMosaic Project/Time Entries Billable Field
RegularBillable
OverheadNon-Billable
PromotionalNon-Billable

To mark a project and its time entries as billable, change the Project Charge Type to Regular. To mark them as non-billable, change the Project Charge Type to either Overhead or Promotional.

Please note that only Posted time entries have a Billable status, while all Unposted time entries are considered Non-Billable.

If you are using Deltek Vision Cloud, you need to upload the latest version of the Stored Procedure for Timesheets to enable access to the Billable status field. Please reach out to your Customer Success Manager for the Stored Procedure and more information.
