What: a guide about the functions and overviews at 'my profile'

For who: all TimeChimp users

My profile is the place where you as a user get insight into your hours, and where you can also set up your own basic settings.

My profile

The first thing you see is your personalized dashboard. Here you have a visualized overview of the time you have tracked.

At the top right you can use the arrows to indicate of what year you want to see the data.

At the bottom of the graph, you see a dotted line that indicates the timeline. The purple part represents the past period, and the green part represents the weeks remaining until the end of the year.

Total Hours: the total number of hours currently tracked.

Vacation hours: the number of vacation hours remaining.

Overtime: the number of hours that have tracked which surpasses the number of required hours set in your contract. The overtime is calculated from the start date of your contract, up to the Sunday of the previous week.

Hours sick: the number of hours you registered on the activity 'sick'.

Let's show you how it works with an example.

The employee of this example has the following data:

  • Contract of 40 hours per week, starting from January 6th.

  • Leave balance of 200 hours.

In total, the employee registered 1,482 hours. These are all hours together; billable, non-billable, leave, and sick hours. You can see that the employee has not registered the full 40 hours in weeks 7, 23, 26, and 27. However, in other weeks, such as week 17 and 38, more hours were registered than the required 40 hours. The hours that the employee was short of, have been corrected with the overtime so that the overtime saldo is only 2 hours.

In this year, the employee tracked 26 sick hours.

By going to the Leave or Overtime tab, you will gain insight into your balance. Here you can see, for example, how many hours of leave you have been allocated, and how many have tracked.

Below you can see how this looks like of the previously mentioned example employee. You can see that 200 hours of leave were allocated on January 6, and the days on which leave hours were tracked by the employee.

In the Schedule tab, you can see which tasks are planned for you. By setting the option "Show past" to YES, you can also see which tasks were planned in the past period.
