Submit a Timesheet

Timesheets in CMap have been designed with a lot of care and attention to make it a slick, quick and easy user experience. Recording time in CMap is really important and can have significant benefits as it can help you to manage your time, stay in budget, and spend more time working on the job in hand.

In this article, you'll learn how to:

  • Add a Timesheet Row
  • Book Your Time
  • Save and Submit your Timesheet

 Add a Timesheet Row

1. From your Dashboard, select the Time + Expenses tab and press Timesheets.

2. When using the Timesheets function for the first time, it will be blank. The first thing you need to do is Add a Timesheet Row. To do this, select .

3. A pop-up box will now appear in the middle of your screen. 

You have two options:

  • Add an Internal Code by pressing Please Select to expand the Dropdown List of Internal Codes.

  • Add a Project by typing a Project, Code or the Company Name into the search field.

Remove a row from your Timesheet

If there are any rows which no longer apply to your Timesheet, press the  icon, which you will find on the right-hand side of each row.

Book Your Time

Now that you have added the Internal Code(s) and/or Project(s) to your Timesheet, you are now ready to book the time you’ve worked. The steps are slightly different for booking time to a Project and an Internal Code.

Book Time to a Project

For each Project that you have worked on, type the number of hours that you’ve worked.

If you are recording time to a Live project, you will also need to select the Task you were performing on the Project from the drop-down list. The drop-down list will include the Tasks from the Project’s Fee Estimator

Notes can also be added to a timesheet entry to provide more information on the work that has been performed.

Book Time to an Internal Code

To book time to an internal Code- such as a Public Holiday or an Internal Meeting- enter the numbers of hours against the relevant day(s) and record any optional Notes if needed.

Select Add Another to book time on the same day to a different Task for that Project.

Save & Submit your Timesheet

You must Save or Submit your timesheet before closing or reloading the page. Saving a Timesheet will mean that you can return and add more timesheet entries or make any updates before submitting.

Once submitted, the Timesheet will move to the following week. Timesheet weeks can be re-opened by a User with access to the Reopen Timesheet Week Admin Tool in CMap.

Update your preferences

You can keep the internal Codes and Projects that you book time against so that you don’t need to add them to your Timesheet again.

Hopefully, this article has shown you that filling out your Timesheet really doesn’t need to be a time-consuming admin chore, but instead is a useful tool to help you manage your time effectively, stay in budget and keep on track with your targets.
