Time Entry Import
|Top Previous Next|
The Time Entry Import window allows a user to import a file from another program or the Design Manager Mobile App (from the Whiteboard). The import will accept the following file types: xlsx, csv, txt, or ics. Design Manager provides a template Excel sheet for Time Entries.
To learn how to export your Google, Outlook and Apple Calendars to an ics file, go to a link below:
Import Time Entries for a FIle: Select whether to import all of the entries in your file, or for the import to only include time entries for a specific date range.
NOTE: When you export your ics file, the entire calendar selected may export. To import specific dates into Design Manager, we suggest that you use the Date Range function on the Time Import window.
Select the Import button to browse your computer and select the file you wish to import into Design Manager. You will need to link the fields from your file that match the fields in Design Manager. See Import Data (Time) for help linking your files.
Fix Entries: Once a file is imported, the entries that are tagged for Fix can be updated using the following options.
Select the Add button to add a new Time Entry manually (without importing a file). A new window will appear for you to create a new Time Entry. This window is similar to the Time Entry window from the Employee Time section of Design Manager, however, this entry will not create a Time Entry until the Record to Projects button is selected.
To make a change to any of the entries on the main Time Entry Import window, select Edit. The window above will appear and you can change any fields of the entry as needed.
Selecting the Delete button will completely remove the highlighted entry from the Time Entry Import window.
Once you have entered all of the Time Entries and made any changes needed, you can now Record the entries marked for "Import" to their respect Projects. Any entries marked for "Fix" or "Hold" will not be recorded. You must first make the necessary changes to the entries so they may be marked as "Import" before they can be recorded.
