This user guide will discuss how to review and post time sheets entered by employees using Team Xpress.

Note: Time Sheets should only be used when not using check-in/out methods, not in addition to. It is best to pick one option to keep data consistent and avoid complications for administrators. To discuss which option works best for you, please speak with your Implementation Specialist or Contact Support now.
