Consultant time tracking entry

Consultants simply love entering time with Timewatch® time tracking solutions. Whatever you assign time to, jobs, projects, tasks, cases etc. you set the terminology to match your organization's terms so when your users first see their timesheet they are immediately familiar with the system. Your administrators can write custom help and provide instructions on how you enter timesheets in your organization; your rules, expected posting dates, whatever you need to streamline the process of timesheet entry.

When employees are entering timesheets, they only see the items they are assigned to, making their pick lists as short as possible and specific to them. This speeds up entry and ensures they cannot book time to projects they are not allocated to - dramatically reducing entry errors.

A favorite feature is our our "Instant Search" - here, simply by typing in a timesheet field the system displays matchin projects as well as their recently history. This feature saves over 70% of the time taken to enter timesheets.

Users have the freedom to track time as hours-minutes, decimals or as a %age of their day, they can roll projects forward from the previous week, import time from their Outlook calendars - yes that's right, if you have a booking in your calendar you just click a button to import that time and allocate it to a Job in your timesheet.
