TTM Configuration Overview TTM Control Panel

TTM Time Tracking and Management (TTM) provides a tool to clean up the Timesheets list by archiving stale items to another SharePoint list.

  • There are two archive options available:

    • Archive Now – creates an immediate one-time archive of identified timesheet data
    • Save Schedule – uses a timer job to archive timesheet data on a specified schedule
  • The archive process is managed by the Bamboo TTM Timer Job Manager which is responsible for:

    • creating the destination list
    • copying the timesheets that meet the archive criteria from the Timesheets list to the destination list
    • deleting the previously copied items from the TTM Timesheets list

Icon-Warning Important: Once data is deleted from the Timesheets list it will no longer be accessible from Time Tracking and Management (TTM):

  • Users will not be able to view archived records in the Timesheet Entry or Submitted Timesheet displays
  • TTM reports will not include information about archived timesheets
  • A project’s cost and work variance calculations may impacted
