If your firm repeats many actions over weeks or months, the Duplicate Time Entry will save you time. Clicking Duplicate Time Entry on an existing time entry creates a new entry by copying all of that time entry's information, and setting the date of the duplicate to today's date. Even if you want to change the date or edit other information before saving, the Duplicate Time Entry button can still save you time by providing you a template.


Where is the Duplicate Time Entry button?


If you're viewing time entries from the Time Entries page, the Duplicate Time Entry button is in the triple dot dropdown, located on the far right side of the time entry. If you're viewing time entries from the Calendar page, it's on the upper right corner of the time entry. Note their locations in the following pictures. The pictures below indicate the Duplicate Time Entry button's location with a green arrow.
