You have now made your time entry, and you’ll see it displayed on the “my time” page.  It will look like this:

You’ll now have the ability to view your team’s work logs over the full weekly period under a single report, and add time to each day as necessary.  To get started, you’ll just need to click on the Timesheets section of the left sidebar, and select the Weekly option from the list that appear beneath it. On the following page, you’ll be able to filter to the specific user, and then click the “Add Time” button to manually input the time and date, or click on the box under the specific day to add time directly to that date.

You’ll receive a window to enter your timelog details identical to the one you’d receive when entering a timelog from the Daily Timesheets section.

Deleting and Editing time manually for Weekly Timesheets

Editing or deleting time via the Weekly Timesheets page is very simple!  To do so, you’ll just need to click on the time under the specific day that you’d like to modify.  A small window will expand from the time field which will list each individual sequence of time tracked that day. You can click the “Edit” or “Delete” icon directly next to the corresponding time span to make the change.


Adding time manually in the Calendar

With our new Calendar timesheet, you’ll be able to scroll through and view your daily work over a week period, broken down into hourly increments.  As with our other timesheet pages, you’ll also be able to Add or Modify time from here!

To do that, you’ll just need to click on the Timesheets section of the left sidebar, and select the Calendar option from the list that appear beneath it.  Then, you can either click the “Add time button towards the top-right, or click the specific time frame you’d like to add your time to.



You’ll then receive a window to enter your time log details identical to the one you’d receive when entering a timelog from the previous Timesheet sections.

Deleting and Editing time manually in the Calendar

Similarly to the Weekly timesheet page, in order to delete or modify time entries on the Calendar timesheet, you’ll just need to click on that specific entry.  A module will appear with the “Delete” and “Modify” buttons, which you can click as needed.



Manual time entry settings

You can edit which team members can add, edit and delete time entries manually.  To do this, just filter to the specific organization, and click on “Settings” in the left sidebar.  You’ll be brought directly to the Modify Time settings page, where you can change the organization default (effecting all users), or apply individual settings to specific users by clicking the option next to their name.
