Managing Time Entries in Timesheets


All users, except for collaborators, can manage time entries on their own timesheets. Users with the right to edit other users' time entries can manage the timesheets of other users.

You can add new time entries and edit existing ones in Timesheets.

  1. Double-click the cell that aligns with the relevant date, task, and category for which you want to add a timelog entry.

  2. Enter the number of hours or minutes you worked on the task, e.g., 1h 30m.

  3. Press Enter on your keyboard.

Option 2

  1. Hover over the cell with the relevant date, task, and category.

  2. Click the + that appears.

Change a Time Tracking category

You can mass change a Time Tracking category for all timelog entries in a specific row. To do so:
