Creating and working with timesheets

raiseR Timesheets feature is one of the key features of the Work module. It consists of the following sections: 

  • Timesheets to Approve: Manage and approve employee timesheets for accurate project tracking and billing;
  • My Timesheets: Easily submit your timesheets and maintain transparency on your work time;
  • All Timesheets: Gain a comprehensive overview of all project timesheets for informed decision-making.

To access the Timesheets navigate to the Work module.

Important: Your assigned role determines which sections and actions you can access within Timesheets. Review your permissions in Settings → Roles & Permissions → User Roles → Work → Timesheets (see Roles and Permissions).

My Timesheets

The My Timesheets section acts as a central hub for managing all your past and present timesheets. 

Here's what you can do:

  • View a list of all your created timesheets, including drafts, approved, in-process, and closed ones;
  • Track the progress of timesheets based on their status:
    • Drafts: timesheets that are awaiting for final touches before submission;
    • In-Process: timesheets that are under review waiting for approval;
    • Approved and Closed: timesheets that are finalized;
    • Rejected: timesheets that are not approved due to some issue the approver found.

    1. Navigate to Work → My Timesheets;
    2. Look for timesheets with a Draft status;
    3. Click the Send for Approval button on the chosen timesheet;
    4. Give your timesheet a unique name;
    5. Leave a comment if needed;
    6. And voila! Your timesheet is on its way.

    Adding a New Timesheet

    To add a new timesheet, click the + Add button to create a new timesheet. The Worklog page will guide you through the process.

    Timesheets to Approve

    The Timesheets to Approve section shows newly submitted, unreviewed timesheets by default (check the red number). Use filters to view all statuses except drafts.

    Here's what you can do:

    • See everything at a glance;
    • Track the progress;
    • Access Timesheet Information;
    • View Timesheets;
    • Take control of timesheets: Approve, reject, or close them for reference - all within Timesheets to Approve.

    Who sees what:

    • Approvers: You'll see all New timesheets for projects you approve. Once you respond, the timesheet moves to Approved in Timesheets to Approve, My Timesheets, and All Timesheets.
    • Creators (non-approvers): Your submitted timesheets (not New) are in My Timesheets and All Timesheets with the status In Process until approved. Once approved, they move to Approved in all sections.

    For each project, specific approvers review time entries. Managers and other authorized personnel typically take on this role. You can set up these approvers directly within the Timesheets Approval settings.

    Remember: Timesheets update automatically, so no manual allocation is needed.
