Timewatch’s new calendar timesheet is a game changer.

This latest timesheet streamlines the way people track time

Timewatch is revolutionizing timesheets with a new calendar timesheet.

Up until now, timesheets have been a chore for employees, but now Timewatch help users turn data already in Outlook, Google or their schedule into timesheets. The new calendar timesheet system saves employees potentially days each month, time they can spend working on more productive tasks, which in turn saves businesses time and money.

The Calendar Timesheet

Calendar timesheet is a game changer

Timesheets commonly look like a spreadsheet, which requires users to manually enter the data such as: what they worked on (customer/project), the date they did the work, any associated sub codes and notes, how long it took, in some cases when they started and any other data the organization needs. It is laborious, and it’s definitely not everyone’s favorite thing to do with their time.

Although our calendar timesheet looks completely different to a spreadsheet timesheet, it contains all the same data, but looks like an Outlook calendar. Although our timesheet supports both styles of timesheet, many people find our weekly calendar timesheet easier and faster to use, and takes the chore out of timesheet entry, guaranteed.

Timewatch supports both spreadsheet AND calendar style timesheet entry. Outlook users love the calendar timesheet.
This is the calendar timesheet. It looks and feels like Outlook, which makes users instantly familiar with the system – and it shows the Outlook appointments that are available to post to your timesheet!
Blue entries are ones that are already in the timesheet. Notice there are 2 items on Monday, which add up to 5 hours for Monday.
Transparent Green and Red items are Outlook appointments that are available to post to your timesheet. The Green ones already have a Customer / Project allocated and are ready to post to your timesheet.
Transparent Red and Green items are Outlook appointments that are available to post to your timesheet. The Red ones already need a Customer / Project to be allocated to post to your timesheet.

In the mobile app, time already in your timesheet is blue, like it is in the PC/Mac calendar timesheet.
Green bars in the mobile timesheet shows the total time in Outlook appointments that are ready to post to your timesheet on each day.

Why a calendar timesheet?

Previously when customers wanted Outlook time tracking and Outlook timesheet functionality, their users had to download a plug-in that ran inside Outlook. As plug-ins run code and store data inside Outlook, they slow Outlook down, cause instability in Outlook[1], create IT support overheads and security risks [2], which are best avoided.

Our approach is simple but revolutionary, we leave Outlook and Office 365 alone![3]. With our Outlook calendar timesheet, there are no plug-ins and no code running inside Outlook. Users carry on using Outlook as they normally do.

Instead of trying to turn Outlook into a timesheet with a plug-in, we’ve re-imagined the timesheet as a calendar so customers can take advantage of the data they already have in Oultook to create an Office 365 timesheet.

Perfect Integration: No Timesheet Plug-ins to slow you down

“This new approach leaves Outlook to do its job perfectly, with no plug-ins, no-popups, nothing to slow Outlook down,” says Timewatch CEO Graeme Wright.

“Our new calendar timesheet looks like Outlook and lets users turn appointments into timesheets in seconds. We show you what you have posted to your timesheet, what appointments are available to post to your timesheet, and what appointments are waiting to have a project assigned.”

Wright said customer feedback has indicated that the new Outlook Time is a gamechanger.

“Everyone who has seen this so far has said ‘Wow, I don’t need a plug-in, it feels like Outlook, and looks like Outlook,” Wright explained.

“Years ago we started with Outlook plug-ins, but our new approach of bringing Outlook into our timesheets is much better. It is faster, infinitely more reliable, more secure, as it uses the same technology Microsoft uses. Instead of trying to shoehorn timesheet functionality inside Outlook, we’ve left Outlook to do its job, Instead we make people’s Outlook data work for them by making it available inside their timesheet. Once users see our calendar timesheet, there is no looking back. We are incredibly proud of what we’ve created as we know it will improve people’s lives. We welcome everyone that is interested in seeing the system in action to ask for a personal demo. ”
