Add Time From The Task List

While the timesheet is the quickest way for an individual to enter the time he/she has worked, time can also be added from the Task List view. This is helpful if one user needs to add time worked by another user.

To add time to a task, click in the cell to the left of that task in the time column, represented by a clock symbol in the column header, and enter the time and comments on the ensuing screen. Alternatively, you can chose the Start Timer link above the time and comment entry area, and Workzone will keep a timer running at the bottom of the page until the Stop link in the timer has been clicked. The timer will continue counting even if you navigate to away from the current page. (Here, Manager and Administrator users will also have the option to assign the time to another user)

When typing in a time entry, you can type a number followed by the word (spacing optional) hour, hours, or the letter h, or leave the number as is to record hours.

Days and minutes can be specified by entering day, days, or the letter d, and minutes by entering minute, minutes, or the letter m, after the number (spacing optional).

Once time has been assigned to a task, a clock icon will appear next to the task in the Task List. By putting your cursor over the clock icon, you can see how many hours have been accumulated to date for that task. Click on the clock icon, and you will be taken to a detailed page with the individual time entries for that item. The existing entries can be adjusted.

Contributors, Reviewers and Partner users (when given permission) can add or adjust time to any tasks in projects they can access, but only for themselves; only Administrators and Managers can add or edit time for another user, as mentioned above.
