TeamTime FAQ

What versions of SharePoint is TeamTime compatible with?

TeamTime is compatible with all editions of SharePoint 2007, 2010, 2013 and 2016 including WSS/Foundation.

Unfortunately TeamTime does not currently support SharePoint Online / Office 365, due to the restrictiveness of the environment.

Does TeamTime need any client software of ActiveX/Java Applets installed?

No - but it does require a browser that supports Adobe Flash to display the charts.

 

How many user licenses does TeamTime come with, and how can I buy more?

TeamTime is licensed per server; this means it has no user restrictions and no user licenses.

You can have an unlimited number of TeamTime sites, each containing as many users as you like; see below for guideline amounts of users per site.

 

How many users can I have in each TeamTime site?

Each TeamTime site should contain around 10-50 users, with a maximum of 100. Data can be consolidated from several sites for Reporting and Analysis by using the Overview Site, and there is no limit to the number of TeamTime sites you can have. Keeping the individual sites quite small has these benefits:

  • Different teams aren't tripping over each other's tasks
  • Approvers are more likely to know more about how the team is spending its time
  • Each team can have its own settings (such as self-approval)

 

Can I integrate directly with TeamTime's data?

TeamTime now offers extensibility lists, to allow you to directly integrate with the data. Please see: Extensibility

 

How do I add Teams/Departments/Locations to my TeamTime site?

Due to the recommended sizes of each TeamTime site (Please see "How many users can I have in each TeamTime site?" above), we don't offer the facility to split users within a site. Instead we'd recommend splitting the users into different sites for each team.

How do I add columns to the timesheet?

Custom Columns added to your site are automatically displayed on the timesheet. Please see the guide for more information: Custom Column Guide

 

How do I let users Approve timesheets but not change the site's settings?

TeamTime allows for three user types: User, Manager, and Administrator. SharePoint's default permission groups don't separate out Managers, but a new group can be added with the Approve permission to cover this type of user.
