Begin by selecting the timecards box to expand options and click "navigate to time entry" to access the time entry dashboard.
*Note* Save clicks by using the hot key combination of Alt+I to access the time entry dashboard.
Utilize tab stops to key in time efficiently and effectively. Tab stops are columns in your time entry dashboard that are selected with a check box (reminder: you can customize what columns display in your time entry dashboard by right-clicking the column header and selecting/de-selecting from the list of options). By default, all users have "RT Hrs" and "OT Hrs" marked as tab stops.
To key in time using tab stops, select your mouse into the first RT Hrs field you are ready to key in time for.
Following the example image below, I would begin by selecting into the RT Hrs field for Joe Alaska. Then, after keying in the number of regular hours worked, select tab on your key board to be automatically graduated to the OT Hrs field for Joe Alaska. Selecting tab again will move the active field to the RT Hours field for Judy Almonds, and so on and so forth until time entry for that customer/group of timecards is complete.
Tab stops are just one tool for keying in time efficiently in Enterprise.
