Create a Timesheet

Also available on    


To create a new daily timesheet with timecard entries using the project's Timesheets tool.


In Procore, timecards and timecard entries are used to log the number of hours employees and workers spend doing work on a construction project. Each day, you will create a new daily timesheet. A daily timesheet contains the individual timecard entries submitted by your employees and workers for a specific date. By default, Procore's timecard entries track the work's cost code, work location, number of hours worked, time type (for example regular or overtime), and mark whether or not the entry's hours are billable. A tool administrator also has the option to configure your project's timesheets to capture timekeeping data such as classifications and sub-jobs.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • To create a timesheet in the 'Pending' status, 'Standard' level permissions on the project's Timesheets tool.
    • To create a timesheet and place it in the 'Reviewed' status, 'Read Only' or Standard' level permissions with the Review & Edit Timesheets granular permission on the project's Timesheets tool.
    • To create a timesheet and place it in the Reviewed' or 'Approved' status, 'Admin' level permissions on the project's Timesheets tool. 
  • Additional Information:
    • You can create a daily timesheet for any past, current, or future date. By default, the 'Select Date' field on the 'Create Daily Timesheet page is set to the current date. 
    • Your daily timesheet must include at least one (1) timecard entry for any worker or employee for whom you want to log time on a given date. 
    • Each employee or worker can have multiple timecard entries on a daily timesheet. 
    • Zero (0) hour timecard entries are supported. This provides your team with the flexibility it needs to enter time off and per diem. 
    • You can click the 'Bulk Time Entry' button to apply changes to any selected timecard entries on a timesheet. See Bulk Enter Timecard Entries on a Timesheet.
    • You can create Project and Company level custom reports and use the Timesheets tool for source data. See Create a Custom Project Report.
