Required fields is an extra feature, which you can enable by upgrading your workspace to any of the paid plans.
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
