Add a time entry

There are two types of time entry:

  • Activity - These are hours that you spent working on an activity.

  • Time off/non-billable - These are for all other times that are not related to the project, and are therefore not billable to the customer.

Timesheets are pre-filled with the hours that you set up in your resource planning.

In order to invoice the customer for the time, it must be entered in VOGSY and submitted to the project’s account manager for approval.

Submitting time entries also impacts the project budget.

To add a time entry, do the following:

  1. Click timer orange Timesheets on the VOGSY side panel. The Timesheets feed will display with a list of your timesheet cards, sorted with the most recent timesheet at the top.

  2. Find the week that contains the day for which you want to add a time entry and click it. If time entries already exist for this day, they will display.

  3. Click plus circle Add Time Entry and fill out the form. See Field descriptions for more information.

  4. Click Save.
