negative time entries

We do a monthly cutoff for financial reporting. When it is discovered that time has been entered to a project incorrectly after the month has been closed for our financial reporting we have no way to make that correction in the current month. We would like our timekeepers to be able to enter a negative time entry for the incorrect time and a positive entry to the right project or an administration code in the current month. Net time entry is 0 hours but on the revenue side the impact could be negative or positive and needs to be recognized in the current period.

HI Patricia,

Negative time entry on the timesheet is available as an option in Replicon. May we request you to help us with a screenshot of your timesheet so we can provide you with the exact steps on how to enable the same on timesheets.

Aashnee: If there is an option to allow this I would be very interested in understanding what we need to do to enable. I have attached a screenshot of a timesheet. Let me know if you need anything else.

Hi Patricia,

Thank you for providing the screenshot.

In order to allow negative time entry on your timesheet, you will need administrator access. As an Admin, please go to Administration - Timesheet Template and open the timesheet template assigned to you. Please check the option shown in the screenshot below:



Let us know in case of any concerns and we will be glad to look forward

I am trying to accomplish the same thing as Patricia, however, I do not see those options under the Time Distribution Grid that you have screenshotted above. I do have System Administrator access. Does it have to be a certain Timesheet Template?

Hi Nichole,

It should show up for time distribution grid under the custom timesheet template. Let me have our support team reach out to you and investigate further.

Aashnee: I added the option as advised above. When I tried to enter -2.00 hours on my timesheet it reverted to 0 hours. How is a time correction (negative hours) entered on the timesheet? Thank you
