Contextual Help - My IN/OUT
The My IN/OUT window is used to display your IN/OUT items. An IN/OUT item is used to log your time automatically for a task. When you close the IN/OUT module, the hours elapsed are added to your time sheet for that task.

This window has 4 parts: the title bar, the "My Weekly Time Sheets" tab, the "My Time Report" tab and the "My IN/OUT" tab

  • The title bar tells you where you are in AceProject. At the end of the title bar you will find the link to contextual help.
  • The My Weekly Time Sheets tab shows all your time sheets.
  • The My Time Report tab is a form to produce a report in your time sheets.
  • The My IN/OUT displays the information about your time counter.
    • Since everything is automated, you can only choose your time type, your current week and enter a comment.
      • "Start Time" is the date and time when you opened the IN/OUT item.
      • "Estimated Hours" is the figure from the task itself. It corresponds to how it should take to complete the task.
      • "Elapsed Hours" corresponds to the amount of time since this time counter was activated.
      • "Remaining Hours" corresponds to Estimated Hours - Elapsed Hours. If there is a negative number, it means the counter has been active for a longer time than what was originally estimated.
      • "Time Type" identifies the nature of the hours worked.
      • The "Comments" field contains any additional information you entered.
      • Click the "Open my IN/OUT" link to edit your counter.


What are IN/OUT items for? 
N/OUT items are used by each user to log his/her time automatically. When they close the IN/OUT, the hours elapsed are added to their time sheet for that task. For administrators, this window is useful to know which task each user is working on.
