Entering time consists of the following topics:
Add Timesheet Entries
Individual timesheets capture the time you spend on projects,
stories, defects, or tasks. They provide a convenient place for you to specify time spent on all the tasks you own that are scheduled for the week.
Because the data you enter on your timesheets may affect reports created for accounting purposes, you should fill out your timesheet according to the guidelines provided by your company. If you are unsure about the guidelines to follow, contact your CA Agile Central administrator before entering hours in your timesheet.
CA Agile Central supports these types of timesheet entries: user stories, tasks, defects and projects. This allows for adding existing items to your timesheet, as well as tracking project time, such as meetings. Your CA Agile Central administrator may also set up CA Agile Central to track non-project time, such as vacation and sick days.
