Recording daily time

Product Help Banner.png


You can create a Timesheet from your Home Page or from the Employee Details page. If you have the authority, you can also create an Timesheet on behalf of another employee. You do this by opening their Employee Details page. You should enter the amount of time spent daily as you complete each task. Additionally, you can choose to display a Timesheet in a Periodic or Calendar entry view so that you can record your time in that view — refer to Changing a Timesheet view. If there is no more time to record, you advance the Timesheet in the process using the Entry Status Buttons so that the time is reviewed and subsequently authorised.
