Manually adding time towards specific Tasks

If you forgot to start your timer to track time or want to track time manually instead of using the application, we’ve got you covered.
Sample manual time entry in WorkStatus.

The Modify Time setting should be enabled for this feature to work. When the setting is disabled, then Add time button should be hide from View Timesheet.

Below is our guide on how to add time manually:


Navigate to Timesheets -> View timesheet.


Next, click on Add Time located towards the right-hand side of the page.


After you click the Add time button, a modal box will appear. This is where you will add your time entries.

First, select the member, then select the project name, then the todo name. Next, choose the date, and then add the From time and then the To time.

(Optional: enable the billable field if required). Lastly, you can provide a reason (when required) and add a note then hit Save.

The time entry will be added for that day. Notice that under the Manual column, it shows 100% of this time log was manually added.
