IMPORTANT:

Runn handles timesheets slightly different to what you may be used to.

You must enter time in every field, including 0 if no work has been completed.

In Runn, people can enter their own timesheets from their My Timesheets page. 

In addition, a  person with admin or editor permissions can view, enter, and update actual data and timesheets for any other person or project in their Runn account. 

You can view actuals data from a number of different pages in Runn:

  1. My Timesheets, to view and enter your own timesheets.

  2. Project page, to view and enter project timesheets for each person working on a project.

  3. Person page, to view and enter timesheets for an individual person.

FAQs

What if I can't see my timesheets?

This means your email address hasn't been associated with your person page in Runn. If you have administrator or editor access, you can do this yourself. Just follow the instructions here: How to set up Runn so people can enter their timesheets

If you don't have editing rights, contact the project manager of the project you are working on. They'll most likely have editor permissions and can set you up correctly. 

What if I see a red box around a time entry? 

This means you have missing time entries. Make sure to fill in 0 if you haven’t completed any work instead of leaving the field blank. 

What if the project I worked on isn’t showing on the list?

First of all, make sure you're looking at the right week. You can navigate to the right week using the <- and -> arrows. If you still can't find the project, click the "Add project" button in the bottom left-hand corner and select the project you worked on from the list. 

Can I enter notes about what I did when I enter my timesheets? 

Yes. Hover over the box and click on the notes icon.

Why do I have to enter time even when I didn't do any work?

Runn calculates if your project is on track by looking at what work has been completed.

Because timesheets may be delayed or missing, Runn will automatically assume that the scheduled hours occurred until the actual value is entered.


If you are using Runn for timesheeting, you should always enter the amount of actual time spent each day, including 0 if no work was done.

If you or your business always logs exactly what was scheduled, such as being an onsite contractor, or doesn't do timesheets, you can leave actuals blank, or only enter if there are differences (such as someone being sick).

If you are using different software for timesheets, you can either use our API to sync the timesheets, or you can enter the amount of time spent that week without worrying about how the time was spent each day.

My total hours and timesheets don't appear to match. What's happening?

Runn assumes that all scheduled work occurred until you enter a different value.

This means that if someone was scheduled to work for 8 hours but didn't do any work that day, they must enter 0 into their timesheets for that day. They can not leave it blank.

If you have checked that the person has entered their time each day, but still have issues, please contact support using our chat in the bottom right.

I can't view my old timesheets because they are locked. Why's that?

Your account admin may have set up auto-locking timesheets. This means that after a selected number of weeks, you will not be able to view and change your timesheet entries.

Locking timesheets

If you select timesheets to auto-lock after 2 weeks, users will be able to view timesheets from the start of the current week, plus 2 full weeks further in the past.
