Macrotone Timesheet is a component which allows employees to enter timesheet information that may later be printed and/or distributed to the company accounts for processing. The idea is that employees have a central mechanism for time entries against specific project (or account) codes.
At initial release it runs upon Joomla 3.4 the current Joomla release.
Update to use latest free-jqgrid version, additional timecode display fields.
Change table character set and test against latest Joomla 3.5 release.
Fixes to pass JED certification tests and minor improvements.
The is the initial release of the component.
The documentation in PDF format and also as web pages is available upon the site. [Please see links under 'Joomla Extensions' on the site.] This document only presents a brief overview of the functionality.
Within the back end of the site one can add existing Joomla users to the timesheet tables, thus enabling them to create/edit their own timesheets. One also defines the users who can 'approve' and already completed timesheet, either at this stage or later.
The back is is also where the account/project codes are created and maintained. In the initial release the time codes are visible via a front end display, but are not editable or created on the front end.
The front end is where users will create their timesheet, and where they are generally approved. The timesheet' grid' is where the hours assigned against each project (or account) code is performed. All grid editing occurs solely in the users browser. The grid data is not saved to the database until the user presses the 'Save' button.
Note that time sheet grid editing is not implemented in the back end by design.
The component has an option to ensure that each user can only submit one timesheet for each defined weekly period.
We trust this brief overview is sufficient to cover the main features of the component and you are requested to look at the full PDF documentation for more information.
If you find this component useful, you are requested to raise a review on the Joomla Extensions Directory, and possibly consider making a donation to assist in providing support and future enhancements.
We would like to thank all the people who have donated their time and effort in providing translations for our extensions, either individually or as part of a translation team, so that they may be used by the wider community.
