Tip 50: Customizing fields and layouts for time logs in Zoho Projects


Dear users, 
We received many feature requests regarding customized timesheet fields from you. A few of them are highlighted below: 
  • "We would like to add a dropdown in a time-log with some custom values in it, preferably connected to a field in a task/issue that sets a default value but can be overwritten."

  • "We have a few projects wherein we want resources to clock hours against specific items. We have multiple sub-projects under a specific client project and would like to capture hours for sub-projects however time sheets only provide the option of selecting Project and Task." 

  • "Is it possible to add a custom field to our Timesheet records? We have our time in the Timesheet and we filter for a time period and approve the time. Then I’d like to be able to mass update those records with an Invoice Number." 

  • "I want to add "Location" with a dropdown of values that we can control when a user submits a time log entry." 
We heard all of you! :) Yes, you can now create customized layouts and fields for your time logs based on your project's requirement. Refer to the following demonstration to learn how a construction company uses customized fields for their timesheet module.
