Repository Versions:



Hibou Corp.




 The purpose of this documentation it to outline the utilization of the Timesheet Description module. 

The Timesheet Description module enables the ability for timesheet entries to be made in a form view, allowing the user to enter more descriptive timesheet entries. Additionally, there is an option to display your timesheet entries in Markdown on the front end of your website.

Getting Started

To get started, navigate to the Apps application.

Once there, remove the 'Apps' filter and search for 'Timesheet Description'. When ready, click install.

Good to Know!

This module requires both the Timesheets and Project apps; however, if you do not already have these installed, Odoo will install them for you during this module's installation.


Once the module is installed, navigate to the Project app.

The New Form View for Timesheet Entries

Once in the Project app, select a project, then select a task from within that project.

Click edit, then under the  Timesheets tab click Add a line.

Instead of entering information inline, a new Create Timesheets modal window will pop up with extra space for more in-depth description. Complete the fields on this form.

Date: This will auto-populate with today's date. You can adjust it to reflect the actual date the work was completed, as needed.

Employee: This will auto-populate with your username. You can change it, but be careful about entering timesheets for other employees.

Description: This is the new field that has been added. Here you can enter a description for the work done on this task.You may use standard markup language.

Duration: Enter the duration of the work  that was done. You may enter this in hours:minute (02:30) or as an integer (2.5).

Click SAVE & CLOSE, or click SAVE & NEW to add another entry for this task. When you're done entering your timesheets, they'll now show on the Timesheets tab of the task.

Click Save on the task.
