Timesheet & Project Management Blog

The goal of this blog is to provide tips and ideas for improving time tracking and project managment for our customers and other interested people.

Whiteboard: Timesheet Approvals

 

Here’s something consulting firms will love:

A way to ensure client billable hours are entered for each week. And hours are logged to the correct projects and tasks. And the correct number of hours are entered.

In Standard Time® it’s called Timesheet Approvals.

Here’s how timesheet approvals work:

  1. Employees certify their timesheets by clicking the ‘Submit for Approval’ button
  2. Emails go to the manager
  3. Managers check employee hours, projects, and tasks
  4. Timesheets are approved, and optionally locked against possible changes

Consultants can even get email notifications when they forget to submit timesheets, or if their timesheet contains too few hours.

Submit and approve timesheets: That’s how to make sure client hours are done right.

Timesheet Approvals are waiting for you.

Whiteboard: Mileage Tracking

 

Hello consultants and road warriors!

You’re probably already tracking mileage for tax purposes. Everyone on the road does it. It’s a huge tax deduction.

But hopefully not on:

  • scraps of paper
  • text documents
  • or spreadsheets

Have you seen the clever new timesheet named Standard Time®?

Not only can you track deductible items like mileage, you also get:

  • Expenses
  • Billable hours
  • And vacation tracking

You could run your whole operation on Standard Time!

Here’s how to track mileage:

Start by tapping on your vehicle name. Up comes the last odometer reading. Enter the ending odometer reading, and Standard Time computes the distance and tax deductible amount.

Choose a client and project, and enter notes. Mileage records are synchronized for safekeeping and reporting.
