Outlook timesheet that works offline?
Timewatch is currently testing a new version OutlookTime®, our Outlook Timesheet that now supports offline posting of timesheets.
We think this is really cool – most timesheet systems have to be online for users to successfully enter their details and link to a central server that will record their information.
The new version of OutlookTime plans to use pre-allocated assignments and categories to allow it to post time when offline. The posted items are then automatically synced when the user next goes on line.
Offline posting is particularly useful for people with metered, slow or intermittent connections and also for the many users who travel and like to make the most of their time even when they are offline.
Every day users waste valuable time entering similar data into both Outlook and their timesheet! OutlookTime® adds functionality to Outlook to allow users to allocate customer / project details to Outlook appointments. This then allows appointments to be posted to their timesheet. By removing duplication, OutlookTime® typically saves employees three to four HOURS each week.
Improved Reporting & Management
With OutlookTime®, Outlook is transformed into a full-blown timesheet reporting system. Administrators can review time by employee, by customer, by project, by date, or any combination of these. Additionally, budgets allow analysis of time versus budget, estimate to complete by project.
In addition to the three to four hours each week that OutlookTime® saves employees entering timesheets, it also saves project managers four to five HOURS each week as all project information is instantly accessible to them. Additionally, administrators save two to three DAYS each month as timesheet consolidation is fully automated and reporting is available in real-time.
It’s no secret that employees do not like filling out timesheets. OutlookTime® saves them time as it uses data already in Outlook. Put simply, users love using OutlookTime® as it makes their life easier, saves them time, and this in turn means timesheets are entered more frequently and more accurately.
If your organization tracks employee timesheets and uses Outlook, you owe it to everyone who works with you to take a look at OutlookTime® and learn how using Outlook to track timesheets will benefit everyone.
