Time tracking software allows users to record and managers to analyze the amount of time spent on projects and tasks. MyWebTimesheets - makes it easy for managers and payroll administrators view and approve timesheets, invoice clients, run detailed reports. Our reports helps consultants and managers to track and analyze how employee time is spent on various projects (jobs), tasks, activities and for which customers.
Clicking on the notes icon in your timesheet makes it easy for users to give more info to timesheet approvers on what was done during the time. MyWebTimesheets has both row level notes as well as cell notes fields. These can be customized and set to be required or optional for the timesheet model.
Where is this
It is found next to the timesheet cell and at the beginning of the time entry row.
How can I use it
You can add notes about the time entry and any specific information that will help justify the time spent on the task for the approvers. Useful for managers and admin to see where project bottlenecks are happening so that they can free up resources. Once a note is added just mouse over the cell to see the entered note.
Here's how you add a note
Another use for the note is for the approver to ask questions or add comments to the timesheet while approving.
Why should I use it
Rather than just seeing a time entry it will help if there is a short note attached - makes things clearer for the approving manager. While approving also a manager can add a note.
Makes things clearer for managers
Timesheets notes field can be set as an optional or required field in the timesheet field settings for the customer/project/task. This feature is very helpful in giving a compact view of the timesheet as well as more information on the time logged in by users.
Employees can explain why something took less time than anticipated or more time. In case a different billing rate needs to be used for the task it can be mentioned in the note cell. If more time is anticipated for an unfinished task you can add a note to the timesheet approver about the same.
It will also help in raising client invoices by giving more information on billable tasks.
