Track staff time with our core feature - Tempora's online timesheet

Simple for Staff to Use

Users describe timesheet entry as ‘simple’ and ‘intuitive’. Time-entry training is included but not normally required. Where needed it takes minutes. Tempora’s mobile app is perfect for staff on the move even without connectivity.

Adaptable Time Capture

Tempora can be configured so that users allocate time to 1 - 5 sub-client categories. This provides for varying degrees of granularity when reporting on exactly where time was spent. E.g. at one end of the scale identify just the client for whom time was spent, or at the other end, the client, project, job, activity and task where time was spent.

Easy and Flexible to Manage

Admin users can add new staff, clients, projects and activities in seconds. It is also simple to apply different charge out and cost rates to your staff. Staff can also be given individual minimum hours requirements.

Late Timesheet Reminder

Using Tempora PROMPT you can ensure timesheets are completed when you need them. Tempora automatically chases staff with overdue timesheets and reports to you on anyone that is overdue. Switch on Tempora PROMPT’s “lock-out mode” to prevent users accessing any application other than Tempora to ensure timesheets are on time.

Quick implementation

Tempora is online, which means you can be up and running in hours with unlimited projects, clients and activities.

Add Notes

Staff can quickly record notes against their time entry, capturing any key details about that work. These notes appear in various business performance reports within Tempora. This is helpful for internal record keeping as well as for accounting to clients for work undertaken.


Tempora can be configured in various languages and takes account of local public holidays globally.

Tempora Timesheet PROMPT

With PROMPT, timesheets are submitted on time, every time.

Our timesheet reminder Tempora PROMPT works in conjunction with our core product Tempora Timesheets.  PROMPT chases your staff for overdue timesheets, completely taking this off your managers hands.. With our late timesheet reports, receive a weekly update on which staff have outstanding timesheets.

Automatic Reminders and Reports

PROMPT will send automatic email reminders to users and provide you with regular reports on which staff have overdue timesheets.

Flexible Configuration

Select how PROMPT should activate in response to an overdue timesheet. Either by issuing repeated pop-up reminders (at a frequency of your choice) or lockout a user from all other applications on their PC or Mac, until the overdue timesheet is submitted.

timesheet enforcement
When activated, the PROMPT lockout ensures that users with overdue timesheets are only able to log into Tempora by automatically restricting their computer to Tempora.
timesheet notification
If Activated, the gentle reminder serves recurring pop-up reminders to users with overdue timesheets .
Deploy PROMPT selectively

Our timesheet reminder can be configured on a person-by-person basis so that individual staff members receive the most suitable form of prompting.

Time Saved

No more chasing staff for timesheets week after week. This will free up valuable time.

“It didn’t take long for people to realise that a timesheet reminder like Tempora Prompt actually saves them time. With work still fresh in their minds, timesheets can be filled out in seconds.”
