ETC module settings


”ETC” means ”Estimate to Complete” and makes it possible for you and your employee to state your estimated outstanding work for a given assignment.



The page shows two ETC settings.

  • Warn when ETC is more than X days old:
    This setting defines whether the project manager is to see a warning on the screenshot Project progress (t.) on the sheet Project Plan for the individual project if an employee has failed to submit his/her ETC within the number of days stated as of this day.
  • Submission of uncertainty with ETC reporting
    This setting defines whether an uncertainty assessment is to be submitted when reporting an Estimate to Complete (ETC). The project manager is able to see this notification in the screenshot Project progress (t.) and in the log report available for all reported ETCs. Assessing uncertainty surrounding reported ETC is an excellent approach to highlight the exactness of estimates submitted.
  • NOT IN SYSTEM FROM 20200616 - Force employees to make ETC before timesheet can be closed
    This setting defines whether the user is to be forced to submit ETC reports on the assignments which he/she has worked on during the week when closing his/her timesheet. If the functionality has been activated, it will be impossible for a user to close a timesheet without submitting an ETC report. This functionality will be active only if the users attempt to close their timesheets for this or last week.


The ETC function is activated from the System administration -> Projects -> Settings for estimated completion times (ETCs).
