ClickTime allows Administrators to create three types of users, each with its own level of security: Standard Users, Managers, and Administrators. A person's security level determines which tabs they can view and what features they have access to.
When adding a new person to your ClickTime account, you will be prompted to select a security level for the new employee. For more information on adding new people to ClickTime, please see Creating a New ClickTime User.
You can also change the security level of an existing employee by navigating to the Company --> People page and clicking the pencil "edit" icon next to their name.
On the Person Details page, navigate to the "Security & Permissions" section, and click "Edit Section".
You will be prompted to choose one of three security levels: Standard, Manager, or Administrator.
After configuring security permissions for the employee, always click "Update" to save the change.
A Standard user is anyone who will be keeping time. They'll have access to the Personal tab and can create timesheets, expense sheets (if your organization is utilizing the expense module), report on their own time, and view their own time off balances.
Standard users cannot view other people's data or make any changes to Clients, Projects, Tasks, People, or Divisions.
Managers' permission sets are highly configurable and a company can have as many uniquely configured Managers as necessary. Administrators can control a Manager's access to reports, permissions to review timesheets and expenses, and permissions to view and edit People, Client, Project, and Task lists.
Managers do not have access to the Company --> Preferences page and cannot delete items from ClickTime. They should inactivate People, Clients, Projects, or Tasks that are no longer in use.
The Manager permissions on the Person Details are as follows:
Every permission (Reports; Timesheets; Expenses; Client, Project, and Task Lists) has an Access Level. By selecting "All People" under Review Timesheets, for example, you grant a Manager permission to access timesheets for all people in the organization. By selecting "People in specific divisions", you can specify which Divisions the Manager has access to.
You can specify which Divisions the Manager will have access to at the bottom of the "Security and Permissions" section.
By checking the box next to the corresponding Division in the Available Divisions column, and clicking the right arrow, you will add the Division to the Selected Divisions column. The Divisions in the Selected Divisions column are the Divisions the Manager can view and/or make changes for when they have been granted access to "People in specific divisions".
To revoke access to a Division, check the desired box in the Selected Divisions column, and click the left arrow. The Division name will now appear in the Available Divisions column, and the Manager will not be able to view and/or make changes to objects associated with that Division.
You can give Managers permission to run company reports by checking the box next to "Run company reports". Managers can access all reports if this permission is selected.
The Timesheets section is where you configure a Manager's permissions to review and manipulate employees' timesheets.
The "Review timesheets" permission allows a Manager to view timesheets on the Company --> Timesheets page.
"Notify users about their timesheets" allows Managers to access the "Send Email" function from the Company --> Timesheets page. For more information, see the Timesheet Review guide.
"Lock and approve timesheets" allows Managers to make changes to a timesheet's status. For more information on this function see the Locking Timesheets guide. If your organization is utilizing Timesheet Approvals see the Timesheet Approvals guide.
"Override timesheets" allows Managers to override, or enter and edit time, on an employee's behalf. For more information on this function, see the Overriding Timesheets guide.
This is where you can indicate if a Manager should be the Time Off Approver for all employees or just those in certain Divisions.
If this is checked, the Manager will show up as an option in the "Time Off is approved by" section of the Person Details pages for the appropriate employees. For more details on Time Off Request and Approvals, please see the Managing Time Off Requests and Approvals guide.
Checking "Review expenses" gives Managers access to the Company --> Expenses page. For more information on this function see the Expenses Overview.
Please be aware that if you give a Manager access to expenses, that will mean they show as an option to approve expenses. Managers will only be able to approve/reject expense sheets that belong to employees who are set to have their expenses approved by that Manager.
"Lock and approve" expenses means a Manager will show as an option for employees to be their Expense Sheet Approver. Only Managers set as an Expense Sheet Approver can change the status of an expense sheet by rejecting or approving the expense sheet.
"Mark expenses as paid" allows a Manager to change the expense sheet status from approved to paid.
"Override expenses" allows a Manager to create and edit expense sheets and expense items on an employee's behalf.
Expense Types is where you set up the different types of expenses that appear on the Company --> Expenses page. By selecting "View", you allow a Manager to see the list of expense types, both active and inactive. "Add and Edit" means that a Manager can add, edit, and inactivate expense types.
Payment Types is where you set up the different types of payment available to users on the Company --> Expenses page. By selecting "View", you allow Managers to see the list of payment types, both active and inactive. Selecting "Add and Edit" allows a Manager to add, edit, and inactivate payment types.
"People Lists" controls permissions to manage the Company --> People, and Company --> Divisions pages, as well as the Employment Types List page. For more information, see the Editing People guide. More information on Divisions can be found here.
"View Divisions" allows Managers to view the Division list on the Company --> Divisions page. "Add & Edit" also allows the Manager to add a new Division, and mark a Division as inactive on the Division Detail page.
"View People" allows Managers to view the People list on the Company --> People page. Checking "Add & Edit" gives the Manager permission to edit people, add new people, and mark users as inactive on the Person Detail page.
"View Cost Rates" allows Managers to view user's cost rates on the Company --> People page if they also have access to that page. If you choose not to allow a Manager to "View Cost Rates", the Manager will have access to reports like "Person and Task Summary with Costs", but will not see cost rate information in reports. More information on costs rates can be found in this article.
Employment Types controls permissions to manage the Employment Types page found by navigating to Company --> People page (as shown below).
Checking "View Employment Types" gives the Manager permission to view the Employment Types List page. Checking "Add and Edit" allows the Manager to create Employment Types, assign employees to Employment Types, and to access and edit the Employment Type Detail page.
It should be noted that a Manager will need the permission to "View" as well as "Add and Edit People" to access Employment Types.
The Clients, Projects, and Tasks List options give Managers the ability to View and Add or Edit items from the Company --> Clients, Company --> Projects, and Company --> Tasks pages. For more details, see the Create, Edit, & Manage help articles here.
Checking "View Clients" allows Managers to view the Client List. Checking "Add and Edit" gives Managers access to the Client Detail page, and the ability to add new Clients and mark Clients as inactive.
Checking "View Projects and Project Insights" allows Managers to view the Project List page. Checking "Add and Edit" gives Managers access to the Project Detail page, the ability to add a new Project and mark Projects as inactive.
Checking "View Tasks" allows Managers to view the Task List page. Checking "Add and Edit" gives Managers access to the Task Detail page, the ability to add a new Task, and mark existing Tasks as inactive.
The Billing Rates option gives Managers the ability to view Billing Rates if they also have permission to Add and Edit the object that is associated with the Billing Rates.
Managers will automatically be given access to view Billing Rates if they have also been given access to the Resource Planning feature. If you do not grant a Manager permission to "View Billing Rates", that Manager will have access to reports like "Billing Summary with Person Detail" or "Billing Detail by Person", but Billing Rates and billed amounts will not appear in the results. More information about Billing Rates is located here.
Administrators can access every function of their ClickTime account, including all functions found on the Company --> Preferences, Company --> Advanced, or Company --> Integration pages. More information on Advanced options can be found here.
