Time Tracking

Many of our users love being able to export their timesheet data to Excel for further reporting, pivoting and data analysis, billing, and even payroll purposes. Did you know that with our recent 7.11. release, you can easily export data from your timesheet views in Tempo Timesheets? This particular exporting features was one of the most highly requested from our users, so we are excited to now offer this possibility.

Lets go through the few simple ways that you can export your timesheet data to Excel:

Exporting to Excel from Timesheet/Report/List view

In versions prior to Tempo Timesheets 7.11, users were only able export to Excel by opening up the Tempo Report or List view in Tempo and then selecting Export to Excel from there. What a hassle!

Now you can export to Excel directly from your timesheets.

Simply open up the one of the timesheet views and click on the Timesheet button in the top-right corner, as displayed below.


Then, click on the Export button in the top right corner and select Export to Excel. The Exporting feature is available from three different views in the timesheet, including the Timesheet, List, and Report view. Note that you can also view a printable version of the timesheet if you prefer.
