How do I add the 'Timesheet Hours' column to a budget view?


If your company is using Procore's Field Productivity tools, a user with 'Admin' level permission on the Company level Timesheets tool can assign a default cost type to automatically apply to all of your project's timecard entries. This action allows the timecard entry hours submitted by project team members (using  the Timecard, Timesheets, My Time (Android) and My Time (iOS) tools) to be immediately reflected in the Budget tool whenever a budget view includes the 'Timesheet Hours' column. 

How do I configure the default cost type for timecard entries?

If you have 'Admin' level permissions to the Company level Timesheets tool, you must assign a 'Default Cost Type' for your timecard entries. For step-by-step instructions, see Configure Advanced Settings: Company Level Timesheets.

What if my company doesn't use Procore's Field Productivity tools?

If you collect timecard entries using third-party software, instead of Procore's Field Productivity tools, you can develop a custom integration that allows you to add the 'Timesheet Hours' column to a budget view.
