The post SharePoint Task Plan – Tracking Time presents a SharePoint List based timesheet for charging time against a project task plan. Adopting this type of list based timesheet raises the question: How does a project or job manager view all the time tracked to project? The screen shot below presents a view of the timesheet list displaying time charges by year/month and then task and employee. Summary totals are also presented. This view provides an easy way of seeing all time charged to the project. Alternative views would be by task, year/month, and employee or by employee, task, year/month etc. Because it is easy for users to develop their own personal views in SharePoint, a project or job manager can develop a view to meet their particular needs.
The number in parenthesis at the end of the task, indicates the number of entries for that task. Heading columns, e.g. Task Title, Timesheet Date, Hours, Comments, Staff Member, etc. are not depicted in the screen shot. They appear at the top of the view.
