Purpose of this add-on
Outlook, in its original state, lacks a direct and an efficient solution to
track time and expense for payroll and billing
purposes. This is further aggravated with little
support for a centralized management and distribution of company's projects and other metadata. But many workers do
some form of timesheet tracking (and often crudely) by
capturing the time and other data from appointments and
tasks in Outlook and feeding to an external data source
With Team TimeSheet add-in, these processes are
automated by integration of the company's project
data source, and allowing workers access to administrator
defined projects, activities and other related metadata in
their Outlook. Individual worker can then prepare
timesheets, tag project metadata and enter other
deliverables from the familiar interface of Outlook
appointment or task items. Once a timesheet is finalized and
ready, it is published to the central database in just a single click. This
submission process is seamlessly integrated in your
Microsoft Outlook and the whole exercise is
transparent to the user. Managers can then use these
submitted timesheets for calculating expenses,
payroll or billing on projects, clients or resources
etc - to mention a few.
Leverage Outlook for team reporting
Team TimeSheet provides substantially
better range of functionality for time reporting than a
similar system based on Excel or the web. Leveraging the
familiar workflow of Outlook appointments and tasks, Team
TimeSheet simplifies timesheet creation, submission
and tracking, yet offers managers and
administrators greater control throughout the time reporting
process. With the assurance that team members are reporting
through a regulated system such as Outlook, that promotes accurate,
consistent time reporting, managers can leverage
precise, up-to-date budget and billing reports
for project estimation and budgeting.
Designed to provide a fast return on
investment, proven and scalable capabilities make
Team Timesheet, a must for organizations that
require an enterprise time and billing management
solution on Outlook.
