Week Beginning

Use this field to select the week in which you want to view, add or edit time cards. Use the adjacent buttons to jump to the previous, next or current week.


Time Card View

You can see all the time entries for the entire week by clicking the Totals column or only the time entries for a particular day by clicking on that day.


If you select a particular day in the week (highlighted in yellow), then the new time entry line (white time entry top row) will use the selected date. The fields are pre-populated with data, based on your user defaults and what project, phase and job code entered in the previous time entry.
