Draft Timesheets

CR Mobile / Billing / Draft Timesheets Draft Timesheets

For CR Mobile users with the (Draft Timesheets > Access) permission, there will be a “Draft Timesheets” section added to the Billing module. Draft timesheets are automatically created once an appointment has been completed in CR Mobile and there are additional requirements needed. If there are no exceptions, a timesheet will be created. Once appointments have been completed, a draft icon will appear on the appointment in the Scheduling module.

Please note, if Visit Verification is enabled, the appointment start and end times cannot be edited when completing an appointment.

In the “Draft Timesheets” screen, users can:

  • Scroll through multiple pages and view up to 1,000 entries per page
  • View the number of draft timesheets defined by filters
  • Filter draft timesheets by selecting a date range in the drop-down and by checking the with exceptions and without exceptions checkboxes.
  • Filter draft timesheets by contact labels, Scheduling module labels, and service codes. Filter views can then be saved and revisited.
  • Hover over any field within the “Client,” “Provider,” and “Service / Auth” columns and selecting the funnel icon to filter the grid by that field.

Below are the columns in the grid:

  • Appointment Date: the date of the appointment in MM/DD/YYYY format
    • Click the date to edit the draft timesheet
  • Time: the start and end times collected from the appointment in CR Mobile.
  • Client Name: the name of the client

  • Exceptions: the number of exceptions in the draft timesheet
