​​There needs to be consistency between all of your developers' timesheets, so you should get them all to adhere to the following:

  • Be accurate​
    Figure: Good example - Inform accurately how much time you spent for​ each client
  • Follow Do you know how to describe the work you have done?​
  • Record all the work you do for a client, even if it is to be written off
  • If you are working with another employee, ensure your times are consistent, in both time and category
  • If you are providing telephone support, count your time in 15 minute blocks
  • If you work for a client 4 times in a day for 15 minutes each, feel free to enter one timesheet for 1 hour, listing the 4 things you did. The extra information adds no value and only serves to clutter up invoices
