Odoo allows you to record the time spent per employee and per project, for simple reports as well as for direct invoicing to the customer.
In order to record the time spent on projects, you must first activate the invoicing of timesheets. Into the Project application, open :menuselection:`Configuration --> Settings`. In the Timesheets section of the page, tick Activate timesheets on issues.
Activating the option will install the Sales, Invoicing, Issue Tracking, Employee and Timesheet apps.
You can record the time spent in projects straight from the projects application. You can either record timesheets in a project, or in a task.
Recording in a project
In the Project application dashboard, open the More menu of the project you want to record timesheets for, and click on Timesheets.
In the new window, click on Create and insert the required details, then click on Save.
Recording in a task
In the Project app, open the project you want to record timesheets for, and open the task on which you have been working.
In the task, click on Edit, open the Timesheets tab and click on Add an item. Insert the required details, then click on Save.
