*If you use SSO (Single Sign-On)
You may be asked to log into an internal web portal or intranet site provided by your IT department. In that case, you should follow the instructions provided by your IT/Help Desk staff for accessing your internal portals. Upon successful authentication, that portal should bypass our standard login screen and automatically open your Time Study dashboard.
Along the left-hand side of the website, you'll see your Quick Navigation Menu. The icons will direct you to:
- Time Studies (past / present / future)
- System Settings
On the left side of your Dashboard, you'll find a pie chart showing the overall Submission Rate, which you can filter by year.
On the right side, you can see the total number of active users.
Below that is a Summary of System Activity, which is a table displaying the number of logins, unique logins, time studies entered, time studies approved, and time studies pending approval. You can view these by these time periods: Daily, Weekly, or Monthly.
Below that is a list of Upcoming Time Periods when users will again be expected to complete time studies.
In the top right corner is your Control Center where you can see your Notifications and Manage your account.
Under the Time Studies menu item, there are three options:
- My Outstanding Records
- Upcoming Periods
- Missing Records
The My Outstanding Records page lets you see any time studies that you yourself are assigned to. It is rare for an Admin to be required to complete their own time studies.
The Upcoming Periods page is simply a list of the Time Periods that have been created for when Reporters will need to submit time studies again. You can edit or create new Time Periods under the Forms section of the web platform (see below.)
The Missing Records page lets you filter by Business Unit, Department, Quarter, Fiscal Year, and/or Name in order to see all time studies that have NOT been completed. You'll see records that have not been started, as well as those that have been started and are On Hold. If the record is past the deadline date, then the status will also say "expired" and you'll have an action option to edit the Time Period and extend the deadline date. You also have an option to export the list.
Editing User Profiles:
- Click People in the left navigation panel
- Use the search box at the top of the form. You may search by username, first name, or last name (but not more than one at a time.) Substring searches are allowed (ie: searching for 'Jo' will also include users named John or Joseph)
- Open the user profile by clicking the purple 'edit' icon located in the far-right column
- Make your changes
- For more detail about each profile field, click Sign In at the top right of this screen, log in with your work email (create a Help Center account if you haven't yet), and click here.
- Click Save at the bottom to save your changes
- More information about adding and deactivating users can be found here:
- Read about the different role types here: What is the difference between the Reporter, Supporter, and Administrator roles?
Click Forms on the navigation to the left of your dashboard. There are four options:
- Activities: used to capture the specific functions being carried out and reported on
- Categories: used to group specific activities
- Time Forms: used to define and configure your time studies
- Time Periods: used to define the timeframes of the year when you are capturing data
Each section has a search box and buttons to Add a new item or Export the existing list. There is a column of Actions on the far right, where you can perform actions such as:
- Toggle active/inactive
- Set/Reset Default (Time Forms only)
- If a time form is set as default, then whenever you add a new user, this time form will be automatically assigned to them
- This icon will be disabled in some cases to prevent you from deleting an item that is linked in such a way that it would disturb your data
