Timesheet

Day timesheet

This is the default timesheet which basically looks like a simple table. Each row represents a specific time entry created with the timer or entered manually.

 

To create a new time entry use the top bar. Select the task you’d like to add time to. Next, enter duration (or ‘from’ – ‘to’ time values) and click on the green button. That’s it!

 

 

Instead of entering row numbers, you can change the view to the timer. To do this, simply click the “Start timer” link next to the green button. Start and stop measuring time with a single click.

 

 

Once you’ve tracked some time, you’ll see your timesheet being automatically filled up. Note that you can edit each entry by hovering your mouse over it and selecting one of the available icons. You can also add notes or add time directly to this entry with the start button on the right side of each entry.

 

Symbol Description
Shows report to this task.
Changes the date of the entry.
Opens time entry history.
Deletes selected time entry.
Makes the entry billable/non-billable. Handy if you want to invoice tracked time later.

 

You can also easily merge entries with the drag-and-drop method. Simply “catch” desired entry and move it into a different task. Remember to turn off the option “Synchronise timeframe with duration when editing time entry” before. Look at this short video!

 

You have even more options if you’re using our desktop application to measure time spent in front of the computer. In this case, you’ll automatically have one “unassigned computer time” entry, which you can expand. Then, you can move preferred time entries (either with drag&drop or by selecting checkboxes). If you want more detailed information on assigning unassigned activities, please take a look at this article. 🙂

Note the filter above the list. You can hide short activities to make your timesheet more readable. While activities are grouped by default, you can also switch to chronological view and look at your time in detail, moving only desired timeframe.

Editing existing time entries

We’ve built a textual timesheet so that the edition of all 3 (duration/from/to) fields would be possible. The order in which you’re focusing on those fields does matter – the lock informs you, which value will stay the same.

If you wish to edit time entry and keep a specific value, you’d need to click on this value first.

For example: if you wish to keep the duration and change the start time, click on duration (leave it unchanged), then click on the start time and change it. End time would adjust automatically.

Another example: if you’d wish to adjust duration but leave start time:
– click on the start-time first, leave it untouched,
– click on the end time – edit it.
Start time would remain untouched and duration will adjust automatically.

 

Have we made a good job with this post?
