Summary of Totals for the Day

Next to the date, a summary displays:

  • A count of the number of Draft entries.
  • A count of the In Progress timers for the day 3345_Elite_plan_Swish.png

The example below is for a practice on the Elite plan with two active Timers.


In Progress Entries

In Progress entries are where a Timer has been started to track the time spent on a particular activity. Once the timer has been stopped, the Status will be updated to Draft. Paused timers will still show the status of "In Progress".

"In Progress" time entries can be edited, for example, to change the Client or Job.

Time entries with the Status set as "Submitted" are synchronised to Xero Practice Manager. Time entries are queued and can take up to 15 minutes to sync.

Syncing Time Entries 3346_Pro_plan_Swish.png

  • Time entries that have been submitted and are yet to synchronise with Xero Practice Manager display the status "Syncing".
  • No changes can be made to Time that is "Syncing".
  • Once synchronised, the status will automatically update to "Submitted"


After syncing, if a Time entry cannot be updated in Xero Practice Manager it will be automatically reset as Draft in FYI. This could be if the Job was set to "Completed" or "Cancelled" after adding the Time entry.

In this event, you can reopen the Job, or update the Time entry and change the selection of the Job, and submit the Time entry again.

If Workflow Jobs are enabled for your practice, and a Billing Job is selected in the Job drop-down, the corresponding Legacy Workflow Jobs are displayed for the XPM Task. If there is only one Legacy Workflow Job, this is automatically selected as the XPM Task for the Time entry. If a Legacy Workflow Job is selected, the XPM Task does not need to be selected.

If your practice does not have Workflow Jobs enabled, when creating or editing a Time entry for a Job if there is only one XPM Task for the Job it will be automatically selected for the Time entry.

Time Entries with no Job or Client

Draft or Submitted time entries displayed without a Client or Job indicate the time is non-productive,  such as General Admin, or capacity-reducing time such as Study Leave. Or the time may have been entered using Bulk Create Time Entries, and has not had the details updated yet.

From your My Time, you can click the Submit Drafts button to submit all the Draft time entries for that date that are complete. This changes the Status to "Submitted" for those time entries. Any entries that are not complete are left in the Draft status.


The Submit Drafts button is only enabled if any draft time entries for that day are complete and ready to be submitted.
