The Timesheet Time Entry window records information about the time you spend on tasks. There are separate windows for Daily Time and Calendar Time. There is no Timesheet Time Entry window for Periodic Time.

The window shows whether your timesheet is collecting Calendar or Daily Time and matches the view you chose to display your timesheet. If the window is for daily entry, only one date is shown and the words Daily Time replace the word Calendar.
