As a freelancer counting hours, this type of feature is important to me too. Due to time constraints with kids and such, I'm rarely able to sit at the client's office 7.5 hours every day, or even on average over a full week. My client doesn't necessarily mind so much unless on occasions where deadlines are involved, but I do as this has a direct effect on my paycheck. I'm allowed to work from home or come back in evenings, but this isn't something I'm too happy about doing, and so I'd like beeminder to help me.
I typically want to set my self a goal of ca 38 hours per week (or really 7.5 hours * available days per week, such that occasional holidays are accounted for, and an easy way to "disable" sick days). I'm usually not interested in +time for a week to rollover to the next, since that is bonus/overtime paid, although I guess I could retrachet in those cases since it normally isn't predictable.
