The future of access to Microsoft Dynamics SL will be Microsoft Dynamics SL Web Apps. These apps are written in HTML5 and give your staff browser-based access to view and enter data into Microsoft Dynamics SL through a tablet, smartphone, or desktop machine. Users can record time and travel expenses, approve expenses and invoices, adjust budgets, request items, and more, and they can do so anytime, anywhere. Today we’re going to look at how weekly timecard entry works in Web Apps for Microsoft Dynamics SL.
To use the browser-based timecard entry feature, access rights must be granted to all users who will be entering, adjusting, or approving timecard data. Access rights must also be granted to the users for Timecard Web Services. Then setup is required in the Time and Expense Setup window. Under the Project Flex Time tab, the Web Enabled checkbox must be checked. Make other selections as appropriate to your business needs. Now you’re all set.
To use the feature, just click Timecard Entry in the Project menu in Web Apps. Select Open Timecards, then select the appropriate week (probably the first, most recent week). Click the Summary button, and a smaller window appears. You can optionally describe the work you’ve done for that week in the Description field. Otherwise, skip the Summary button and click on a project assigned to you in the list. There is another optional description field for the project here.
Below the Description field, you can fill in the hours you worked on this project for each day. To designate overtime hours, click on the icon next to the day those hours occurred, and you can enter the overtime hours in the OT1 Hours field. To add comments on the invoice, click the Invoice Comments button. Click Save and you’re done… that easy.
