To use timesheet functionality and generate the Missing timesheets report, you must select a period code for the worker.

  2. In the Project setup form, in the Default category field, select the default project category to use when hour transactions are posted for the worker.

    The selected category is entered automatically on all timesheet lines when the worker creates or modifies hour transactions on a timesheet. However, the category can be changed on the timesheet lines if a different category is appropriate.

    1. Select a worker, and then, on the Action Pane, click the Project management tab.

    2. In the Setup group, click Validation, and then click Assign categories.
