  1. Copying/Pasting from cell to cell

    It would be fantastic if we could right click a cell and select a copy/cut option, then right click a different cell to paste. It would be useful for cloning repetitive tasks or cutting and pasting when entering time into wrong cells. The parameters entered (Start, End, Time Entry Description) would then move from the Cut cell to the Pasted cell.

    Thank you for your consideration.

    • Expense Favorites

      Can we set up Expense Category Favorites, similar to timesheet favorites? This would make expense reports less time consuming and less prone to errors.

      • Allow Manager to impersonate an employee so they can submit timesheet

        Managers need the ability to access their employees account so they can submit an unfinished timesheet. If the employee gets sick or goes on vacation without submitting their timesheet the only thing we can do now is reset the employees password.

        The java app you have released is not a fix for this, especially since it only works for the hosted option.

        • General User Forum

          I'd like to see a general user forum that would allow us to exchange ideas, tips, tricks, techniques, etc. with each other.

          I've considered creating one independently of Dovico but haven't yet taken the time to do so.

            This is an excellent suggestion and has been discussed internally at various levels. Our biggest concern would be if there is enough of a client user base to support this aspect. So we are watching the voting and commenting carefully on this item. This status will be updated as we move forward.

          • Budgeting by Month

            It would be nice if you could enter a budget by person by month. Currently when we enter budgeted hours it spreads it based on the start and end date, but realistically this isn't very accurate. Often times one project can be dependant on another; for example, a project needs 100 hours per month in Jan and Feb and then none again till 100 more in November and December. As is, it will spread the 200 hours, but we need to enter the budget by month instead.

            • Default Yes or No for expense reimbursement

              When submitting an Expense Sheet, is there a way to have the "Reimbursable" flag not default to "No" but require the user to select "Yes" or "No"? The problem is that it defaults to "No" and employees often miss changing it to "Yes", which is the normal setting, so they end up not getting paid. I would like for the user to have to enter "Yes" or "No", making a conscious decision.

              • Tasks not updated with new team members

                At the moment, if you have an existing team assigned to a number of tasks/projects, you have to manually update the assignments individually at the task level one by one if you add a new member to the team.

                In other words, if you add a new member to a team, that new member is not automatically assigned to the tasks of which that team is currently assigned to.

                Can we please enable the task assignment to also be automatically updated whenever a team update is performed?

                • Ability to add Project Management hours across the length of the entire project instead of currently dumped at the beginning or linked tasks

                  Project Planning - Ability to assign Project Management Hours that encompass the length of the entire project after balancing by week of the project. Currently the hours either are dumped at the beginning of the project, or when linked to tasks do not provide time slots for each week a project is worked on.

                      • Graphical interface for timesheets

                        Instead of entering time in a sheet, which involves cumbersome operation of mouse, context menus and keyboard, one could imagine an interface similar to that of MS Outlook Calendar or Google Calendar to enter time.

                        Basically, select the time range to create a new entry and then populate the required fields: Project and description of the transaction (duration and start will be given by the graphical interface)

                          • Static "Total" row across top of Time Entry page showing total hours entered per day

                            As I have a lot of project rows to enter data against, this would allow me to easily spot any days that I have missed or if I have mis-typed hours, without having to scoll down to the bottom all the time.

                              Administrator Features:
                              Due to our structure, we had to set up a lot of Expense Categories. I would like to have a feature like assigning them to certain Regions, Clients or Project. This would give the End User a better overview.
                              Or at least, if not used, if the expense category could be hidden.

                                  • Option to attach all project related information of each project

                                    Being a designing firm, everyday about 10 -15 projects get closed at our end. It’s really difficult to remember names of all projects. As a solution, if we can have an option to attach job's information (can be word, jpeg, excel, pdf etc) to each job, will be great help.

                                    • Undo an Approved timesheet

                                      Is there a way for either a manager or system administrator to "undo" a managers approval of an employees timesheet? We are currently testing version 10 and this would come in very handy. Additionally when I mentioned this to one of the managers she advised she had already experienced a need for an "undo" of one of her approvals. She had to run to the next level approver and ask that he reject the timesheet.

                                      • All Time Appearing in Time Calendar

                                        I think it would be helfpul if all time showed in the Time Calendar, broken down by type (entered, submitted, rejected, approved) and with a Grand Total. When I am looking at when people missed time it is hard to tell if they didn't enter the time or simply didn't submit it. Being able to see all these in the Tiem Calendar would address this.

                                        • Resource utilization consider actual time submitted

                                          It would be useful that the "resource utilization" tab could consider the "actual" time submitted under the tasks for the previous periods and adjust the remaining allocation accordingly. One now has to adjust the task "start" date in order to adjust the allocation for the remaining periods.
