Timesheet entry

To enter a timesheet choose Timesheet -> Create Timesheet from the homepage Ribbon (you can also access this from the Timesheets tab of an employee record). Choose your processing period (week or day) and you will then enter a blank timesheet.

The following view is using the Periodic entry method:


In the blank top row, enter the client name/code or the assignment name/code (minimum 3 characters) and then hit return to activate the search. Continue entering the remaining required information before entering the amount of time on the relevant day.

You can also enter text in the Comment field for (max 1000 characters).

The available Time Unit and fields required to be entered may differ to the screenshot above and will depend on the configuration options chosen by your system administrator.

If no options appear when searching for a client/assignment, ensure that the tick box labeled 'Search any part of the name/code' in the lower left corner of the screen is ticked

If users receive a warning message while entering time, this could be due to the client account status being set to an on hold type. For more informtion on this, please refer to this article.
