Let the staff tag SharePoint calendar events with time reporting data and then report hours and expenses directly from their calendars. The tag values are selected from dropdowns in each event, which makes the tagging quick and minimizes the risk for errors.
Users never have to leave SharePoint, and there are no double entries!
Each user plan their time in the TimeCard SharePoint calendar and tag the events with values selected from dropdowns.
When it is time to report the user presses the Report button to open the Reporting dialog and review the time before it is reported. Any changes made in the Reporting dialog will be reflected back to the calendar. At reporting the data for the current reporting period may be exported to an Excel sheet.
The data in the reporting list is also used in Excel statistics reports.
TimeCard for SharePoint is a Sandboxed SharePoint Solution. It is uploaded to the root site of a SharePoint site collection and activated there and on each site in the collection where it should be used.
Normal SharePoint permissions may be applied to all TimeCard lists, pages and calendars.
TimeCard for SharePoint creates a new calendar for each user. In these calendars, the events have dropdowns for selection of tag values. Each of the calendars also has a Reporting button, that opens a Reporting dialog. The TimeCard calendars may also be used for events that should not be tagged with TimeCard values and used for reporting.
You can use several subsites for TimeCard, for example one for each department. Each of these sites have their own reporting, and they can have their own settings and tags.
Embed a summary
The TimeCard Summary gives managers an overview over reported and future events. The summary can be inserted into any page in the site collection.
