Number Series - Time Sheets

This page describes the Number Series - Time Sheets setting in the Job Costing module.


Each new Time Sheet that you enter will be given a unique identifying number, based on a sequential series.

You can have more than one sequential number series running at the same time, or at different times. For example, you may want to use different sequences to represent different departments or branches, or you may want to use different sequences to represent different fiscal or calendar years.

The Number Series - Time Sheets setting allows you to take advantage of this feature. Here you can define the number sequences that you would like to use with Time Sheets.

To open the Number Series - Time Sheets setting, ensure you are in the Job Costing module and double-click (Windows/macOS) or tap (iOS/Android) 'Number Series - Time Sheets' in the 'Settings' list. The following window will appear:

Enter each new Number Series on the first blank line. The sequences that you enter should not overlap. The Comment will be shown in the 'Paste Special' list, so enter some text that will help you choose a number from the correct sequence. The N/L field common to all Number Series settings is not used with Time Sheets.

When the setting is complete, click the [Save] button (Windows/macOS) or tap √ (iOS/Android) in the Button Bar to save the changes. To close the window without saving changes, click the close box (Windows/macOS) or tap < (iOS/Android).

When you enter a new Time Sheet, the next number in the first valid Number Series entered to this setting will be used as a default. If necessary, you can change to the next number in any other Number Series using 'Paste Special'.

If you leave the setting empty, Time Sheet Numbers will start at 1 and continue consecutively. If you want to start from another number, simply specify it in a new Time Sheet before saving.
