Adding Line Items to a Time Sheet
If the time entries end-users want to add to a time sheet already exist in their time diary, they can use the Add To Time Sheet command to move them to the appropriate time sheet. For more information about this command, see Moving Time Entries from Unassociated Time Sheet Items to Time Sheets Manually.
If the time entries end users want to add do not yet exist in their time diary, they can enter them (or inspect existing time entries) by using either of the following views:
- Time Sheet Item Summary view. Use this view to add or inspect project-level time entries.
- Time Sheet Item Detail view. Use this view to add or inspect task-level or activity-level time entries.
When end users use the Time Sheet Item Summary view to specify an amount of time worked on a particular day, a corresponding record is automatically created in the Time Sheet Item Detail view. Similarly, items that are added directly to the Time Sheet Item Detail view are reflected in the hours shown in the Time Sheet Item Summary view.
The following sections describe how to add time entries to a time sheet using each of these views.
NOTE: If end users create multiple time entries with the same values for Project, Project Role, and Billable, the application automatically consolidates the entries in the Time Sheet Item Summary view. If the entries are for dates within the same week, the view shows a single record with automatically calculated hours totals for each day. In this situation, any field that includes a calculated total becomes read-only. If the value in one of these calculated fields needs to be changed, the change must be made in the Time Sheet Item Details view.
