Configure Advanced Settings: Project Level Timesheets


To configure advanced settings for the project's Timesheets tool.


When you configure your timesheets settings, you can configure how time is tracked when employees enter time into their timecards. Additionally, you can track employee's field location when they clock in and out using a geofence. A geofence is a virtual boundary around a geographic area, typically a job site, that can track when an employee enters or exits the boundaries with a mobile device. Users can be prompted to clock in or clock out when entering or exiting a geofence.

  2. Click the Configure Settings icons-settings-gear.png icon.
