With the aid of Odoo, it is simple to manage the time needed to complete a certain operation.

By defining a target, Odoo enables you to assess an employee's time utilization quickly. A timesheet can be used to keep track of information such as the employee's position and the server number. The timesheet automatically fills in the number of working hours overall, effective working hours, and other information. 

On opening the Odoo timesheet module, you will get the page, as shown in the screenshot below.

On selecting the option, the record will begin, and once it is completed, you have to go to the STOP icon as well.

Now, under the Timesheet menu, you have got the options, such as my timesheet and all timesheets, as in the image below. With the aid of Odoo, it is simple to analyze the total number of hours worked each week, each month, and each day on average.  The software support aids in locating the employee's department and work schedule.


On a specific day, the total number of hours that each employee worked can also be determined. This makes it possible for the manager to determine the precise amount of time needed to complete a task. Timesheets can also be used to ensure job planning and staff distribution that is efficient. The complete work hours can be divided into various chunks with the use of the Odoo Timesheet. With the help of this tool, the time spent on various tasks may be simply measured. All timesheets will be helpful in achieving this. A marketing executive, for instance, may divide his time into office hours, fieldwork hours, and meeting hours if he is working both in the office and out in the field. Odoo makes it simple to manage his working hours in an efficient manner.


A timesheet app has also been made available to users by the top ERP supplier, Odoo. The Google Play Store offers the option to download the app. Anyone with access to the software can plan their time. When unconnected, the app aids in functionality. Information syncing and retrieval are made possible. The Odoo time tracking software offers round-the-clock assistance for monitoring an employee's working hours. The app allows for round-the-clock monitoring and is accessible from any device. The app's capacity to offer support when offline is another key feature. You can use it to work remotely. Even though your employee is working from a different location, the work time will still be updated. An advantage is the offline assistance. The app can be used to make daily plans as well. One can list various activities. Each activity can be given a specific amount of time. It is also possible to generate an alert when the task is finished or when the allotted time has passed.


Odoo aids in the verification of working hours. A timesheet can be used to verify the number of hours worked on several days as well as the overall number of hours worked. One week or one month can be used for the validation. The employer can use this information to determine salary payments and increase working hours.

The work center's operating hours can also be verified using the timesheet. This may increase the capacity of the work center and assist in rescheduling the working hours.

The timesheet assists in producing reports of each employee's working hours and in computing their productive hours. If there are less effective working hours, employees can be informed. Additionally, the employee has the option of creating a work schedule and following it to the letter. A timetable can also be assigned by the employer to increase a team's output.


The ability to generate reports is one of Odoo Timesheet's key features, just like with every other Odoo Module. It is simple to review the amount of time needed to complete a job and the time given for completion. The timesheet will assist the manager in modifying the necessary time based on the productivity of the staff. With Odoo Timesheet, timesheets based on tasks and billing rates are also possible.


These functionalities can be connected with various enterprise resource planning software with the aid of an ERP consultant for efficient time management. Accounting, payroll, school management, and other ERP applications work nicely with Odoo's timesheet. This software's key selling point is that it can operate both online and offline.
