Revamp Timesheet Section UI

Avatar

Level 5

Right now, if you click "Timesheet" in the navigation menu, you will enter your current timesheet by default, but it is not obvious where the rest of the previous timesheets live.

"Back to Timesheets" is not obvious, and the extra step doesn't make a lot of sense if you are a timesheet approver or plan on submitting last week's timesheet on Monday.

Please revamp the interface for the Timesheet area to be more navigable and user friendly.

Agreed. I'd love to see the following UI enhancements.

1. A similar tab structure to what's available on the rest of the pages. A tab for current week, a tab for timesheet list, a tab for timesheet approvals (for those who need to approve timesheets) and a tab for the All Timesheets administrative search.

2. Visual enhancement on the timesheet itself, subtly highlighting every 3rd row (or something similar) so that the user has a clear visual line to follow to make sure they're logging time to the correct item on their timesheet. We have a large list of general hours and some projects with multiple tasks that will be running concurrently and have some users assigned to multiples. This would help them track and get time added appropriately.

3. The ability to add custom "general hours" groupings. I'd like to be able to rename "general hours" to something else. I'd like to be able to add additional sections like that. We have a large general hours area currently that would be better served broken up.

This causes a lot of confusion for my users. Back To Timesheets is not the intuitive choice for finding past timesheets or searching on timesheets.

Users feel like they are already on their timesheets. Back To Timesheets implies it's going to take them back to where they already are.

My team has the same use case as David Gutzmann's bullet point #2.

As well, I'd like users to be able to navigate to the next or previous timesheet directly from their current timesheet. I recommend adding arrows in the highlighted boxes in the attached image.

Agreed. We also have executives who would like to audit timesheets but would never log their time in Workfront. I would like to set their Layout so that by default when they go to Timesheets they get the search, not their own sheet.

UI button placement, navigation without logic and designed-in blank screens are a few of the design features that make time sheets primitive at best.

Yes - need navigation!

Yes - need every other line to be shaded or something so you can clearly see what row you are in

The new Interface in BETA has even MORE space between the name of the task and the boxes where you put the time-- this needs to be adjustable so you can shrink it down & for god's sake, make it readable with shading, LOL.

Also, how about an automatically populating Overtime box? Anything above 40 automatically goes in there for easy tracking.

Timesheets only allow you to enter time at a daily level. Timesheets should support entering time at a weekly or monthly granularity.


Some teams time is tracked on a monthly basis and team members are asked to enter time weekly or monthly depending on their team within CorpNet.


It would be great for timesheets to allow the user to toggle between daily, weekly and monthly time entry options.

we really need shading on every-other row to make it easier to track from the label at the left to the cells on the right, especially in the "general" area at the bottom. We also would love to be able to configure the display to show Saturday as the first day of the timesheet week.

Hello, while this idea will remain in a "Not Planned" status we do have some valuable Timesheet improvements coming soon. We do have plans to revamp Timesheet entirely, but that won't happen now.

Logging into One.Workfront.com for ideas, it states on the screen "We're listening", but it certainly doesn't seem like it. Darren Harper is exactly correct in that a simple code change to have "Back to Timesheets" make more sense would aid our end users, but in reality it would immensely aid WF Admins. I get calls and tickets all the time of "how do I get to my old time sheet?" WF (Adobe) are you listening now? The changes that have been going on over the last six months to a year have increased workload on end users to a small degree, but greatly increased workload on admins. The simple solution to a problem that Darren has asked for should be put back into the planned status. This is stupid simple and a quick fix to an otherwise poorly thought navigation. We've had WF for going on two years now and I'm wondering if staying with Innotas would have been a better solution. And the latest change to Timesheet filtering now has me creating (and constantly editing) filters where before I just entered what I needed quickly in the left side menu. This may be fine for supervisors, but for admins it's a total time eater. However, on my previous sentence, I've had several employees ticket/call me asking how they get their previous timesheets, so it's not intuitive to a user that only goes into the "Back to Timesheets" once every few weeks or months. They have to learn the filtering all over again.
