    • Required: Check the check box if users must enter a value for every timesheet entry.
    • Billable Grouping: Check the check box if the new field will be used for the Total section at the top of the timesheet entry page, and for the utilization graph.  For more about the billable settings: How do I manage the timesheet billable settings?
  3. Click ADD to create a new field.

You can edit a timesheet field, but the field type and location options are not editable after you've initially created the field.  

Timesheet Row Field

A Timesheet Row field shows on the left side, as a column. The value is entered once per timesheet row.

If needed, an item can be added to a timesheet twice. For example, if a user is tracking time on a task for the assigned number of hours as billable, but then goes over, they can add the same task a second time and the hours for the second row can be tracked as non-billable.

Timesheet Entry Field

A Timesheet Entry field shows the field value for each timesheet entry, so values could be different for each day/entry.

It is advisable to use a single field & type for billable/chargeable. This article shows two examples - as a timesheet row field and timesheet entry field. You should choose one method or the other so as not to be confusing or cause data discrepancies.
