Accountants Office with Practice Manager only

You can only change a saved timesheet or disbursement if:

  • the time processing period isn't closed

  • the timesheet date is later than a timesheet lock date (if set)
  • you've permissions to change timesheets for another employee

  • the time hasn't been fully or partially billed to the client.

You can't delete entries in a saved timesheet. You can only adjust the C/R, Units and Comment columns of a saved timesheet. You can't change any items in red as they're either partially or fully billed.

If you normally enter timesheets using Background mode, you may need to select Normal mode from the Tasks bar before making your changes.

Use the methods below only if you need to change a timesheet due to a mistake.

If you need to clear wip from lost clients, see Entering write-ons/write-offs during billing.
