App Home

Slack’s App Home is a private, one-to-one space shared by the user and the app. The user can reach the App Home from the conversation list within Slack or by clicking on the app’s name in messages.

For Weekaz, the Home tab is crucial. You can think of Weekaz Home as an independent standalone application or a portal that lives inside the Slack ecosystem. All the functionality and management is there. You don’t need any external accounts or tools to manage timesheets, log activities, create exports, etc.

The Weekaz Home consists of two sections. The top one is a Header (1), the bottom one is a list of timesheets (2).

The first section (see (1) in fig. 1) provides you with the access to the global functionality:

Use this button (fig. 2) to create a new timesheet. Refer to Timesshet page in this guide for more details.

One of these two buttons (fig. 3) is displayed (based on the current status of the stopwatch). Use them to either start the Stopwatch, or stop (clear) it if you want to cancel the running stopwatch. See Stopwatch for more details on using this feature.

This button (fig. 4) is only visible until you set the favorite Timesheet. Once the favorite timesheet is selected the button is removed from the Home tab. See Favorite Timesheet for more details on this topic.

List of Timesheets

The second section of Weekaz home (see (2) in fig. 1) displays all the timesheets you have access to (i.e. you have at least one of the following roles: User, Manager, Owner).

For each timesheet within the list, Weekaz displays the following information:

  • Timesheet name
  • The total duration of the activities you have logged in the current week (with a week starting on Monday)
  • Timesheet description as defined by the owner
  • Timesheet Owner
  • Timesheet managers (if any)
  • Some of the timesheet users. Not all users are displayed here. To see the full list of the timesheet’s users you have to be either the owner or the manager of the timesheet. Please refer to Timesshet for the details on managing the timesheets
  • The set of timesheet buttons (see below)

There are four buttons that can be displayed for each timesheet in the list. The actual number of the buttons you will see for a given timesheet depends on the roles and privileges you have for that timesheet. Only two buttons are actually displayed at the time. Other can be hidden within the overflow menu to the right (see fig. 5).
