Under Settings -> General -> "Rules", you can choose how many days beyond the present day your users can track time, you can set tracking details, make adding a work item or comment mandatory when your team members add time, select the mode available on your "Add/Edit Time Record" dialog box when adding time, choose how many months of data load on the Times Explorer page, set what role can edit time entries other than the actual user, and you can make any tracked time billable by default.
Prevent time tracking in the future
"Tracking Control Settings"
"Prevent Time Tracking Beyond Present Day" lets you enable or disable time tracking for days in the future.
Clicking on this checkbox enables the "User cannot track time beyond present day, plus:" text field. Here, you can manually type in the day(s) in future that you want to allow users of 7pace Timetracker to be able to track time. If you set the interval to 0 days, users cannot track time beyond the present day. The default interval of 1 day indicates that you can track time today and tomorrow only.
Make a work item or comment mandatory
"Always require a work item"
With this option enabled, users can only start tracking or add/edit time if a work item is provided for the worklog.
"Always ask for tracking details"
With this selection enabled, the system will ask users to enter a comment before tracking will commence.
Change the mode on the "Add time" dialog
"Management of time records and worklogs"
The following describes each mode and how the "Add/Edit Time Record" dialog box displays, depending on how you configure it.
To configure the "Add Time" dialog box to display in the visual mode of your choice, you can choose from Timeframe mode, Duration mode or a combination of the two.
When you select/configure "Timeframe Mode", the "Add Time" dialog box opens with options to enter time with "From" and "To" fields, as well as Duration. *Note that on the "Times Explorer" page, the name field can be a dropdown containing other team member's names, depending on your user role and configured settings.
When you select/configure "Duration Mode", the "Add Time" dialog box opens with just the Duration field to specify the length of time you work.
In this mode, the "From" and "To" fields are not available. This mode is useful when the length of time worked is more important than the timeframe in which you work.
Allow both modes
When you select/configure "Allow Both Modes", the "Add Time" dialog box opens displaying a "Timeframe" toggle switch.Enabling the toggle switch option displays both "From" and "To" fields on the "Add Time" popup dialog box (see screenshots, below), in addition to the "Duration" field. Disabling the toggle switch only displays the "Duration" field.
Select number of months that load on Times Explorer page
"Times Explorer Pre-loaded Timeframe"
On the "Times Explorer" page, data is pre-loaded into the memory of the browser. Here, you can select how many months, by default, should preload into memory, from 1 - 12 months.
Select role that can edit/delete others' time
"Allow time to be edited by role other than user" - this option allows you to give permissions to specific roles, and therefore, user(s), to edit other users' time records.
Select the checkbox and from the dropdown list, select the role to whom you want to give permissions for this.
Set time tracker to billable by default
With the “Billable as Default” checkbox enabled, every new worklog or track of time will be logged as billable (billable time = period length).
