How do I display reports of time that have been edited?
The Manual time edit report provides a summary of which users had made changes to their timesheets. The report will include what actions were made: time addition, editing, or deletion. This lets organization owners keep track of what time had been modified throughout the organization in one central report.
To allow or disallow users from being able to modify (add/edit) time, visit your organization’s Modify time setting.
Table of contents
Generating the report
Navigate to Reports > General > Manual Time Edits.
You will notice that there is a Me and All tab. The Me tab is visible to everyone but the All tab is only available to owners and managers.
You can choose from a variety of custom filters like date ranges, projects, to-dos, actions, members and changed by. The report will display the information based on what filters you select.
Your report will generate after applying the date range and filters. The report will display the following columns:
- Member name
- Project name
- Action – describes what changes the user made
- Timespan – the start and stop time of the added/edited/removed time block.
- Time change – the difference between the original and the modified time. If a user added one hour, you will see 1:00:00.
- Reason – the reason provided by the user for the change.
- Changed by – the user who modified the time.
- Changed at – the date time was edited.
You can also add columns, here we have the About member column (and sub-columns) available:
