How to start a Time Sheet

Documentation •
In this article

To use the Time sheet, Banana Accounting+  has to be be downloaded and installed. In the free version, the Time sheet is in unrestricted mode.

For a quick and easy start of the Time sheet, we recommend opening one of our templates.

Banana Accounting includes three types of template with preset columns:

  1. Systematic records - the start and end times of work are indicated, as generally required by law.
  2. Simplified registrations - enter the daily hours worked (with due hours setting).
  3. Hourly wages - the daily hours worked are indicated (without setting hours due).
In our example we use the template of the Time sheet with systematic registration .

Setting up your Time Sheet file

Proceed as follows to set up your file:

  • File menu → New
  • Select the Region/Language
  • Select the Category -> All or Other
  • In the Search area, type Time Sheet, or activate under Type -> Time Sheet. The program displays the available templates.
  • In the section on the right, select the desired template.
  • By double clicking on the name of the selected template or on the Create button, the program will directly open the file.
  • Save the file under a new name.
