Add items to TTM’s Timesheet Resources list

TTM Configuration Overview Time Tracking checklist

A Time Tracking and Management (TTM) site includes a Timesheet Resources list. This list is one of the resource data-source options available when configuring TTM, and is used to identify the users who will be able to submit time in TTM timesheets.

When using the Timesheet Resources list as the resource data-source keep in mind:

  • You must specify a Timesheet Manager for each resource. Users who do not have a Timesheet Manager will not be able to enter time.

  • You can quickly add users to the Timesheet Resources list using the User Profile Import tool.
    The User Profile Import tool was added in TTM 2.5

  • You can use the Timesheet Resources list as the resource data-source even if PM Central is the data-source for tasks.

    • The PM Central project tasks assigner to a user in the Timesheets Resources list will automatically be added to the user’s timesheet.
    • This configuration is useful is only specific users in your PM Central ERP need to enter time.
