DESQview Timesheet
by Bryan Hanks, Quarterdeck Office Systems

*** Version 1.03 ****

Getting Started
---------------

First, you will need to add a program and edit the PIF file so that
DESQview Timesheet (DT) will know where to put its config files. This directory
should already exist. If it doesn't then create it.


QUICK START (for those who hate to read!)

1) Run program, and select CONFIGURE and fill in the fields. SAVE.
2) Select NEW, then appropriate date
3) Select INPUT. Fill in fields.
4) Press F9 to calculate totals, then press
5) Select PRINT
_______________________________________________________________________________

IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not run DESQview Timesheet from a network drive -- be sure
to only run it from a local hard disk. Errors may occur if the program is run
from a network drive.

CONFIGURING DV TIMESHEET
------------------------

1.xx
DESQview Time Sheet
Main Menu

Input data I
Print P

New N
Save S
Load L
Quit Q

Configure C <--

Current File:
-None-


You will see this screen:


DESQview Timesheet
Configuation Panel

Name:
Department:

Overtime: [] Yes
Work Hours: - Save
Lunch: - Quit


The first two fields are for your name and department, respectively. If you are
paid hourly (i.e., you don't get salary), then select the OVERTIME field.
Salaried employees aren't paid overtime; selecting this field will enable
automatic overtime calculation.

Next, tab over to WORK HOURS. Enter your typical work day. Remember that all
times are in 24 hour format. This means that 1:00p is entered as 13:00, 2:00p
as 14:00, 5:00p as 17:00 and so on.

MAKE SURE YOU PRESS WHEN ENTERING HOURS, TO ENSURE PROPER FORMATTING.

Enter the lunch in the same manner. Once you are done, tab over and press
or click with the mouse on "SAVE" then on "QUIT"; your changes will be
saved automatically. If you only click on "QUIT" then your configuration
changes won't be saved.


CREATING A NEW TIMESHEET
------------------------

1.xx
DESQview Time Sheet
Main Menu

Input data I
Print P

New N <--
Save S
Load L
Quit Q

Configure C

Current File:
-None-


And you will see...

Please select the appropriate
date when the timesheets are
DUE:

dd-mmm-yy Where 'dd' is the day number, 'mmm'
dd-mmm-yy [ ] Save Values is the month name, and 'yy' is the year.



Select either one by arrow keys or mouse. If you press ESCAPE, you will return
to the main menu without creating a new timesheet.

The SAVE VALUES field is unused at this time.

Your timesheet is now created, but you need to calculate the totals:

INPUTTING INFORMATION
---------------------

1.xx
DESQview Time Sheet
Main Menu

Input data I <--
Print P

New N
Save S
Load L

Quit Q

Configure C

Current File:
-None-


F9 recalculates, ESC exits. The buttons on the bottom work as well. When
typing in hours, pressing the in the first character of that field will
clear the field. When you fill in an empty field, you MUST use the form "H:MM"
where "H" is any hour in 24-hour format, where 13=1pm, and "MM" is minutes (for
example, 8:03, 12:00, 22:00).

If you need to add hours to the "TOTAL REG" column--if you performed DVX testing
or some other work and you can't add it on as regular worked hours--then
simply type the time in this column. The special instruction in this case is
that you PRESS ENTER BEFORE MOVING ON to the next field. Other fields will
automatically advance you to the next field when filling them out, but the
feature is disabled here for this reason. When you alter a field, it will
change color. Selecting CALCULATE will preserve the changed values in this
column and calculate the TOTAL HOURS based on this field. Overtime is disabled
for this day regardless of the setting in the configuration.

To clear a changed TOTAL REG field and allow calculate to change it, simply
erase the value and PRESS ENTER IN THAT FIELD.

LOADING & SAVING
----------------

1.xx

Load L <--
Quit Q

Configure C

Current File:
-None-


You are prompted to enter a filename. If you press you will return to
the main menu without loading/saving. When specifying a directory, if you don't
enter the path name, the file is saved to or loaded from the TIMESHEET
directory--the one you set in the pif as a parameter.

PRINTING
--------

1.xx
DESQview Time Sheet

This will print your timesheet on an HP Laserjet II, III or compatible
(Okidata). There is no prompting. At the conclusion of print, you are returned
to the main menu.

Error Messages

All error messages are displayed in a red DESQview error box. The fatal ones
dump you out of the program. To clear the message, click with either mouse
button or press the key.

1) Error in: Another copy of TimeSheet is in operation

This means that you have another Timesheet running somewhere (!) and to
prevent file sharing violations, the last copy run will exit.

2) Timesheet is empty

You are trying to print or edit the timesheet and you haven't selected NEW
or LOAD from the Main menu first.

3) Warning: no TimeSh.CFG!

When you first run Timesheet, it won't find a configuration file
(TIMESH.CFG), so it issues the warning and creates one. You may edit it by
selecting the Configure option from the main menu.

4) Printer is either not connected or it is not turned on-line!"

This error means that you have tried to print your timesheet and you haven't
turned on your printer, or the network you are printing isn't capturing your
print jobs.

Known Bug:
- Entering a time of 9:30 instead of 09:30 will format out to 09:03.
