Showing Links to the Task
As you know, tasks may have links to other section items such as contacts, accounts, projects, cases and many others. Timesheet can also show this relation just below the task name. You can set this up from Settings – Project Management Settings – Timesheet Settings and tick the option called Show Timesheet Relation.
Auto Approved Time Entries
If you want time entries to get automatically approved without manager’s review, you can set it up from Settings – Project Management Settings – Timesheet Settings and check the Automatically checkbox for the Approve Timesheet option.
All further time entries registered will become green which means approved in the Timesheet.
You can set limits to the Timesheet by validating against:
Maximum Hours – employees will not be able to enter more time than that is shown in their timeslot or planned estimated time. If you check the “Set Hours” you can set maximum hours that employee can set per day regardless of their timeslot hours
Task Start Date – employees will not be able to enter time before the task start date.
Task End Date – employee will not be able to enter time after the task end date.
Holidays – employees will not be able to enter time in Holidays.
Leave Request – employees will not be able to enter time for approved leave periods.
Set Timesheet Start Day

Show Completed Tasks until the Task Completion Week
By default, completed tasks are not reflected in the Timesheet. However, you can set the task to show up in the Timesheet just for one week which is the last week of the task.
Show Tasks from To-Do List
To do list is a quick panel to enter tasks and assign them to employees. This panel is located in the Workspace page (if enabled to your account).
If you tick the Show Tasks Added from To Do List option, the timesheet will reflect those tasks and you will be able to enter time for those tasks directly from the timesheet.
Show Hour Type dropdown
Some employees want to show where they worked when they enter hours into timesheet such as in the office, or while traveling or on-site. This option enables users to show the type of hour in the timesheet. The values in the dropdown can be changed to your own customized Hour Types from the Settings.
Multiple Timer Instances
Some users want to run timer for several tasks at a time. This option enables them to do so.
Save Timer Value to Timesheet Automatically

Send Timesheet Notification
