You can track the time that you have spent working on tasks, projects, and non-project activities by using timesheets in Microsoft Project Web App.


Before you can create a timesheet, the site administrator needs to set up time reporting periods for your organization. If you follow the steps in this article and do not see any links to create a new timesheet, perhaps your site administrator has not set up reporting periods yet.

To create a new timesheet

  1. On the Quick Launch, under My Work, click Timesheet.

  2. To create a timesheet for a reporting period other than the current one, on the Timesheet tab of the ribbon, click Select Period.

  3. Choose a date within the reporting period for that timesheet, and then click OK.

The timesheet automatically contains all the project tasks, with work planned for the period, plus any standard non-project activities.

To have more control over what data is pre-populated in a new timesheet

  1. On the Quick Launch, in the Settings section, click Manage Timesheets.

  2. Place the mouse pointer over the Click to Create link in the Timesheet Name column for the timesheet in the period that you want to create, and then click the arrow that appears.

  3. Choose a method for pre-populating your timesheet: Create with Default Setting, Create with Tasks, Create with Projects, or Do not Autopopulate.

From here, you can decide to add lines to your timesheet, enter actual work, or, if you have completed your timesheet, save it or submit it for approval.


If your organization uses single entry mode to capture timesheet data and task status information by using a single view, your timesheet also shows overdue tasks.
