2631280 - Timesheet Input Screen


When selecting extra hours for time sheet entry, the bar view is limited to 2 hours extra only. This is available with blue color for all the attendance types. Can this change to 8 hours and represent different colors for different time types?

Reproducing the Issue

Step 1: Go to time sheet.

Step 2: Book extra hours.

Step 3: The view will only show 2 extra hours. (total 10 hours).

This is an expected UI behavior. In a screen it's feasible to display only couple of hours for example 8 hours, however, you can always input your extra hours manually in the time sheet hours entry points.

The bar is limited to show 10 hours for click and add time purpose. Workshedule in the below case is adding 8 hours, after extra 3 hours are entered, after 10th hour all are shown as thin grey line.

However, this is not limiting us to enter manually the start-time and end-time to the timesheet entries.

For a clock-in based Time Recording Variant, you can enter in the Allocated Hours section.

For a duration based Time Recording Variant, you can enter in the input area below the day of the week too.

The time sheet entry shows the bar in blue color only as of now, there is no separate colour coding for different time types( attendance types).

Please create enhancement request in case this is not meeting your business requirement.
