Timesheet Overview

Need an easier way to fill out timesheets?

View a report of all time logged by a particular user for different time periods, including this week, last week, this month, or a specific time range. Export this data to generate a report for your payroll records.

Using this guide, you can:


View the Timesheet Overview

View the Timesheet Report by clicking on the TIME icon on the Navigation bar at the top of Accelo.

By default, you will be able to see all the time you have logged throughout the current week, including the amount of non-billable and billable time, what it was logged against, and each individual activity you logged.

 You can filter Timesheet Overview in different ways: 

  • Users and Groups. To view a Timesheet Overview for a different user, choose or search for their name from the drop-down list. Note that you must be an Admin user or be the Manager of a user to see the user in the dropdown.
  • Companies. By default, you will see all companies. Select a Company from the list or type its title in the Search window to select the specific one. 
  • Projects. You will see all projects grouped by company. 
  • Tickets. By default, all tickets will be shown grouped by company.
  • Retainers. All Retainers are shown grouped by company they belong to.

Additionally, you can filter by Rate Type


By default, the overview shows time entries with All rates, but you can select any specific rate you'd like to see in this report. In this case, only time entries with the selected rate will be shown. 

Next filter toggles are disabled by default, and report includes logged time as well as emails, notes, calls, meeting reports, postals, billable and non-billable time. 



When Show only with logged time toggle is enabled, you will be presented with only time logged. Notes, emails, calls, meeting reports, and postals are excluded in this case. 

When Show only with billable time is enabled, only billable entries and activities will be included. 

To view the Timesheet Overview for a different period of time, select a time parameter from the drop-down list on the right. Select from Last 7 Days, Last 30 Days, Last 60 Days, Last 180 Days, Today, YesterdayThis Week (the default), Last WeekThis MonthLast Month, or select a defined Date Range on the calendar.
