Each Abtrac user can choose how their timesheet looks.
Linear Timesheets are line by line, with dates on the left.
Tabular Timesheets group similar entries together, and have dates in a table on the right.
Both types of views you have the choice of entry through either the form view or grid view, and with all views, you can show, hide and change how you see the columns in the user control settings.
This screen is useful when you need to update timesheet details in bulk, it eliminates the need to open and edit individual users timesheets .
This timesheets maintenance screen is most typically used in the following situations:
- Updating Employee rates
- Editing Stage/Task or Activities that have been incorrectly assigned
- Changing the job code an employee is assigning time to
- To check if/when timesheets have been billed and
- To check which invoice the WIP has been assigned
- To obtain data not available in performance reports for specific employees, in particular to view timesheet data for employees who are no longer current.

Take time to adjust your Timesheet Control Settings in Abtrac and make your daily data entry just that little bit simpler. Continue reading
The Timesheet Entries report shows : timesheet comments, timesheet units and the total charge/cost extension for each timesheet line. It also provides detailed entries for employee and company disbursements.
There are quite a few variations on the ‘basic’ timesheet entries report with options for lots of different filters, groups and sub-groupings.
By ticking “Ready to Commit” a timesheet user is indicating that they have completed their required hours (and any overtime). It’s also a simple way to confirm that a user has finished entering any comments or disbursements associated with that timesheet period.
