  • If you had already created the timesheet, Navigate to Server Settings >> Manage Timesheets , delete the timesheet and recreate again.

  • Please confirm

    1) If you are actually looking at the same view as you added the field to . Timesheet has two views by default (MY Timesheet and My Work). Click Options and confirm the view

    2) Confirm that the field you added is set to "roll down to assignments".

  • Thanks for replying. I confirmed that the view is correct. However, how to set the field " roll down to assignment", I did not find this setting.

    • Navigate to Server Settings >> Enterprise Custom Fields and Lookup Tables
    • Click on your field name (Task Category)
    • Scroll down the page to find the setting I mentioned, and make the change
    • Click Save.

  • Thank you very much! It works!

    One more question, may I create a  " Marketing Time" which is similar to "Administrative Time", then I can create category (Sales, Advertise, etc.) under the "Marketing Time"? I know I could create "Holiday, Vacation, Sick,etc) under the "Administrative Time".

    Thanks again!

  • No.. you only get  Project and Non-project (administrative). You cannot create another "Administrative" like section.

    You could achieve your requirement in two ways:

    1) Create a project dedicated for capturing Marketing time and assign tasks that relate to your categories.

    2) Create an Administrative Category called Marketing, then let users change the task name when adding that to their timesheet.
