A guide to timesheets and profit

Find out how Synergy uses timesheets, timers and expenses to improve your cashflow

Accurate time recording leads to more regular invoicing, full project transparency, improved cash flow, happy employers and satisfied, trusting clients.


Whether freelancer or practice director, timesheets are important (if occasionally painful). Synergy makes it simple to add timesheets from anywhere in the application. Choose the project, stage, task and rate, add notes, and enter the hours. Once time is entered against the job, it can be added to an invoice.


Synergy also allows you to run instant on/off timers and add the project details later. You can even start a timer on one device and stop it on another. Timers can be started from a task, instantly populated with the right information for the timesheet. Find timers on the timesheets screen and quickly add them to projects.


Synergy timesheets and expenses allow you to enter time on any web device in a simple interface that links time (hours, days, weeks) and expenses to projects and stages.

  • Convert timers to timesheets (and enter missing details when required)
  • Start and stop the same timer on different days splits it to the days it ran on your timesheets

Timesheet Admin — Manage timesheets for others

Any staff (for example, administrators) with the selected security access level can add time, travel expenses, and cash expenses for other employees in their organisation. This means they can enter in any missing timesheets, or correct any timesheet entries that have been entered in the wrong project, for example.
