This page shortly explains Weekaz concepts. For the detailed description please refer to the relevant sections of this User Guide.
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 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
You can create timesheets for different projects, customers, or departments – whatever
fits the way you do business, manage payroll, or bill your customers. You assign various timesheet roles to the users from your team.
The Home page lists all the timesheets you have access to (either as an owner, a supervisor or a contributor). Clicking on “Open Timesheet” button brings you to the detail page where you can see all your activities and the activities of your team members.
From this timesheet detail you control everything about the timesheet, generate reports, filter activities you want to display and so on.
The hard limit is 15 timesheets per Workspace.
You can be assigned three different roles within the Timesheet. Based on your role you have a different set of privileges, from being just a contributor all the way to the full access and management rights.
Activity is a basic Weekaz entity. You log the activity into one of your Timesheets. Activity’s structure (like the time unit or mandatory and optional fields) derives from the Timesheet. In this picture, for example, you are logging 2.5 hours into the Timesheets called “New Subscription Page“.
The owner of this Timesheet predefined it to log the activities in hours and to have two other fields: the description and the category. With the latter having four options available: Analysis, Development, Integration and Testing.
Every Timesheet – and therefore its activities too – has two mandatory fields: Date and Time Unit. Moreover, the owner can define up to ten more custom fields, which can be both mandatory and optional. This way the owner of the Timesheet enforces the users to log the activities in required format.
Stopwatch is a small feature that helps you track the time easily. You just start it whenever you start working and then later when logging the activity, Stopwatch automatically fills in the date and duration for you.
