Working with the Banana Accounting Time sheet can be optimized, via different functions in the Reports and Actions menus.
The Monthly Report command is activated via the Reports menu, , to create the monthly report of working time and other data entered in the Journal (holidays, absences, other) month by month.
The following commands can be activated in the Actions menu:
Go to today
Positions the cursor on today's row.
Recheck all... (F9)
The program recalculates, double-checks and displays any errors or differences.
Use this command whenever you are in doubt that there is a problem.
Sort the rows by date.
Check-in or Check-out
Inserts the current time in the selected cell. Alternatively, you may type "." (point without quotes) in the selected start or end cell.
Fill Day (from last week)
Resumes work and absence time of the current day with the values of the day of the previous week.
Fill Week (from last week)
Resumes work and absence time of the current week with the values of the respective days of the previous week.
Add row day
Adds a row successive to the selected one and with the same date. Use this to enter additional daily values.
Add row total day
Adds a row, where daily values will be totaled.
Create rows for period ...
Add rows (daily, start, total, balances and carryovers) based on the selected period. All rows of the Journal will be sorted by date.
Create New Year
Creates a new Timesheet file for the year to follow. The program automatically sets the initial values of the holiday balance and the hours according to the previous year.
Warning! When creating a New Year, holidays may differ from the previous year - you need to check and change them manually. Alternatively, Banana.ch SA each year makes available several templates with national holidays already set for some countries.
Import Time sheet
Takes over values from an external time sheet. You indicate the file from which to recover the values and specify which values to recover.
The program searches the imported file for rows with the same date and section, and resumes these values.
If there are multiple rows for the same date in the imported file, these values after the first line are not imported.
The dialog box allows you to choose one of the following options:
Import festive only
It only imports the values from the Festive column.
Import all values
It imports the Festive, Notes, Worked, Absences, Adjustment, Due and Subdivision values.
