1Time Track now has the facility to allow you to upload data into the Time Tracking System. This allows you to upload new, current and historical data, in .xls or .xlsx form. You can also use this method to export data from other systems such as project management systems, exporting the data from those and importing the data into 1time. The data will be validated to ensure, for instance, that timesheet entries cannot be uploaded for employees that are not yet on record. Continue reading below to learn how to upload your data!

 

How to find the data upload facility:

  • Log into your 1Time Tracking portal
  • Navigate to the Settings Gear Icon on the top Right of the screen
  • Select Data Upload.

Data Upload

You should start with setting up Employees, followed by Clients, Projects, Project Tasks (if applicable), and finally (if required) Historical Timesheet Entries. Our Privacy Policy explains how personal data is treated. To make it simple for you, we have provided Templates for you to follow while doing your import. You can locate theses Templates in the Data Upload section. Templates are available for Employee Uploads, Client Uploads, Project Uploads, Project Task Uploads and Timesheet entry Uploads.

However, it is important that you note the following:
