Changing your Module Titles

Accelo recommends choosing the option to create a Detailed Timesheet Entry (Optional) in order to provide the option to add more details to the work entries logged in your Timesheet. This is useful if you bill for your time, as it will allow you to account for all your team’s time. This option can be changed to a Quick Timesheet Entry, which will not show any details, or a Required Detailed Timesheet Entry, which will require your team to enter details for every Timesheet entry they create.
