FAQs and Troubleshooting

I get a message that you couldn't find a person associated with my email address? What should I do?

This means your email address hasn't been associated with your person 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 or a Runn administrator 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?

If you still can't find the project, click the "+New" button in the bottom left-hand corner and select the project you worked on from the list. If you still can't find the project, contact your project manager or Runn administrator for help.

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 time tracking, you should always enter the amount of actual time spent each day, including 0 if no work was done.

I can't update 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.
