Timesheet User Guide

Here are some guides to get you started.

When you download the Timesheet App, we create access to two portals for you to manage the timesheet.

  1. The Apple App that you download to one or more device so your staff can Scan their attendance. Another words, the apple device is used as a scanner of the QR barcode that each staff scans.
  2. The Web App is also provided (use an internet browser like Microsoft  Internet Explorer or Google Chrome) to access the administration of the Timesheet, such as adding new staff or printing staff IDs, Reporting and integration to accounting payroll systems etc.

Both of the apps use the same login details, so please follow the instructions on the email sent to you when you registered.

As they start each project, they will scan in, system will list all projects and user selects the project, when employee is ready for the next project, they will scan out from current project, then scan back in again, selecting the new project. This section will be covered in the Apple App below.
