Objective

To create a new daily timesheet by copying an existing timesheet in the project's Timesheets tool. 

Background

When creating a new daily timesheet, you have the option to copy a previous timesheet. Copying a previous timesheet can save time on data entry, especially if your daily timesheet contains repetitive data entry for the same crew members.

  • Required User Permissions:
    • 'Standard' level permissions or higher on the project's Timesheets tool.
  • Additional Information:
    • You can still Add Employees to the new timesheet. See Add Employees to a Timesheet.
    • You can still Bulk Time Entry information for multiple employees on the timesheet. See Bulk Enter Time Entry.
    • You can choose to copy either the previous timesheet that you created or any previous timesheets that you have access to view.
