    Look at drawing history too.
    Next week you’ll have hours on MLK day that the office was closed.

    Standard operating procedure for doing timesheets: 1) Outlook Calendar. 2) Sent Emails. 3) Office Project Deadline Schedule. 4) Inbound Emails.

    I usually do mine once a week now. At a prior employer they would only notice yours was missing if your most recent one was partially filled out. If you never started a new one in a given week they would not call you out on it. I was once three full months behind. The sad part is I was only about half way to the office record.

    Around here, no timesheet = no paycheck

      Around here, no timesheet = noone cares. I haven’t had to fill in a timesheet for 4 1/2 years.

    One more trick: Check your C:\Users\\AppData\Local\Temp folder and sort by date to see what temporary files your programs created. It’s a great way to see if you were working on anything in AutoCAD.

    How does one get that far behind on their timesheet? At my office we need to submit it at least weekly and don’t get paid unless it’s done.

    If the office has any federal jobs and they audit you, not having your timesheet accurately completed DAILY has contractual ramifications. The nanny carries a big stick. Even without that, it’s our taxpayer money, so I hope those timesheets are accurate. The federal debt is big enough already.

    We had a guy at our office that made up an entire day out of thin air in his time sheet (it was a holiday). Needless to say, he didn’t last too long at our office.
