Time Entry - Sheet View

The Time Entry - Sheet View sub-menu displays all of the transactions for each employee in a given accounting period.

Details on each transaction are listed in the grid. The data in the grid sources from information entered on the Employee, Customer, Assignment and Order summary sections of Avionté. The Time Entry data is imported from the portals, mobile sales app, or another Time Entry source.
In Time Entry - Sheet View, users can view and edit transactions, perform actionable tasks, and print or export the data.

Sheet View can be organized by grouping and filtering the transactions. This makes it easy to view specific groups of information and make changes.

Grouping Transactions

  1. Select a column to group the transactions by.

  2. Click on the column header.


  3. Drag the column header into the area directly above the columns where it says "Drag a column header here to group by that column." Collapsible categories will appear in the grid. 


  4. Click the + to the left of the category name to expand the section.



Add Additional Groups

  1. Follow steps 1-3 in the Create a Group section above to add another item to group by.

  3. Drag the columns until the data is grouped as expected.


Remove a Group

  1. Click the column header in the top bar that should be removed.
