Title: Mobile Timesheets
This page outlines the differences between accessing the Unanet Mobile Optimized Timesheet (app view) and merely accessing the Mobile Enabled web page. It also describes how to save an icon on your Home dashboard which looks and behaves just like a mobile app.
What’s covered in this document:
Mobile Optimized (app view) timesheet vs Mobile Enabled (original timesheet view)
You may want to confirm whether you are using the Mobile Optimized timesheet, which functions like an app (screenshot on left below), or if you are merely using the Mobile Enabled timesheet which is simply accessing the web page via your smartphone.
The screenshot on the left below is the Mobile Optimized timesheet, which functions like an app. This is the recommended way of accessing and editing timesheets on mobile devices.
Compare that to the screenshot on the right of the Mobile Enabled timesheet, which is merely a web page accessed from a mobile device.
Mobile Optimized Time Mobile Enabled Time
The URL for mobile time will look different than the URL used when accessing Unanet from a laptop or PC. You can see the difference in the URLs here:
The Mobile Enabled (original/traditional view) URL will look something like this:
The Mobile Optimized timesheet (app) URL will look something like this:
The Mobile Optimized timesheet is also available from the home screen:
On the Home dashboard, the Current Timesheet - Mobile link can be used to navigate to the mobile friendly set of screens for the current time period timesheet.
Why a mobile optimized site instead of an app?
Our customers specifically asked for a mobile optimized site rather than an "app" because they didn’t want to have to ask all their employees to download an app, and then regularly have to update the app on various devices (e.g., iPhone, Android, etc.).
What if I want the Mobile Optimized site to be an icon on my smartphone Home screen?

Note about Time In/Time Out (TITO)
The current version has yet to include support for Time In/Time Out entry for the "mobile friendly" screens or "Full Unanet" Time In/Time Out entry. This includes all mobile devices (e.g., phones, tablets, iPad, etc.).
