Once the Timesheet plugin has been configured to be available on the required Request Action options, it will be visible on the request view, and will offer the ability to both manually record time, and or start an automated timer.

  • The ability to record time against Request Actions will only be available to those users who have been assigned the TimeSheet Manager User Role.
  • The ability to record time against one or all Request Action options will have been enabled or disabled on a per Request Action, Per Request Type, and Per Service basis, so to amend this please review the configuration options for enabling the Timesheet Manager plugin.
  • Service Manager specific Categories, and Sub-Categories that have been configured as default category mappings in Timesheet Manager will automatically appear in the corresponding request actions.

  • Set a Specific time taken by clicking on the middle of the control and adding time in hours, minutes and or seconds.
  • If a Default Category / Sub Category for the Request Action has been set, there is no need to add one manually, however if you wanted to view what this is set as, or to change this to another Category / Sub Category.

On completing the Request Action, any specified time will automatically be passed to the TimeSheet Manager app, using the appropriate Category / Sub Category associated to the Request Action, and passing any supporting comments, who performed the action and when the action was performed.
