To save you or your employees time when entering timesheet hours you can enable timesheets to already be pre-filled, meaning it isn't required to have manually enter the times and hours worked.
You can have timesheets be pre-filled based on working patterns, or if you use the Shift Scheduling module, pre-fill based on an employee's shift schedule.
To enable this option follow these steps as administrator or timesheet administrator:
Click on your name in the top right, then click Settings.
On the settings menu click Timesheets, then click General.
Scroll down to Timesheet pre-filling.
You have three options for pre-filling your timesheets
Don’t pre-fill – If you choose this option, hours will have to be manually entered into the timesheets
Pre-fill from working pattern – If you have created working patterns as part of your Timesheets set up, hours specified in them will show pre-filled on timesheets. Employees can be assigned to different working patterns.
Pre-fill from scheduling – This only shows if you have the Shift Scheduling module. If you have added shifts in the schedule, you can link your timesheets to shift scheduling so that it pre-fills timesheets with the hours set in scheduled shifts.
Once selected, scroll to the bottom and click Save.
If you have selected to have timesheets pre-fill, if an employee has ended up working different hours to what is pre-filled, for example if they were late, or worked an extra hour overtime, an admin or employee can simply amend the times before submitting their timesheets.
