Multiple Timesheets in the same week
By default the Natural HR system will only allow you to submit a single timesheet for a specific week, for instance if you raise new entries into an already submitted timesheet, it will return to draft status. However, Natural HR can make it possible to allow the system to generate a separate timesheet entry for the previously submitted week.
To enable this you will first need to switch on the core setting found by going to
Administration -> Company -> Settings -> Timesheets -> Timesheets settings
In the 'General Settings' section, select 'Yes' from the 'Allow multiple timesheets for each week' option to enable this functionality:
Once enabled, when raising a timesheet for a specific week that already has a timesheet previously submitted, rather than re-opening the entry for editing it will instead create a new timesheet for the existing week.
This new time sheet will share the same week start date as the previously existing sheet but be given an new ID number and new created timestamp, both of which will be visible when viewing timesheets via the timesheets screen, or via self service as an employee.
When raising the new timesheet and selecting a 'Week beginning' date where a submitted timesheet already exists, you will see a section below the 'Date' selection option called 'Added days' shown below:
This 'Added days' section relate to any days that have been added to other timesheets that exist for the same week that you are raising the current timesheet for.
Select the day, or days you wish to add timesheet details for from the day/date options in the top 'Date' row.
After entering the details and clicking 'Add daily entry', the new details will also then appear in the 'Added days' row.
Once these timesheets have been added, they will function in the same way as any other timesheets for the purpose of reporting and you will see both the existing pre-submitted timesheet and the new timesheet you have just added for the same week beginning.
