You can prevent users from adding incomplete time entries with required fields. This will ensure that all time entries have a mandatory minimum amount of information assigned to them, so your reports are organized and accurate at all times.

You can make these fields mandatory:

  • Project
  • Task
  • Tag
  • Description

Required fields is an extra feature, which you can enable by upgrading your workspace to Plus plan.

You can try out the feature for free by activating the free 7-day trial (no credit card required).

How to enable required fields #

On the Workspace Settings page, administrators can define which fields on a time entry are mandatory before the time entry can be created.

Note: when the task is a required field, projects that don’t have tasks don’t show up in the project picker.

How it works #

For example, if you check project and tags as required:

  • No one can add a time entry without a project and tag (not even admins)
  • The timer can be started but can’t be stopped until you add a project and tag
  • Past entries can’t be edited unless they have a project and tag
  • Timesheet won’t let you add time without selecting a tag
