Using the green control menu at the bottom of the app you can scroll between timesheet periods using the previous and next buttons, add a row, save the timesheet, send the timesheet or filter the projects. Using the ellipsis in the top right hand corner you can access other timesheet options such as refresh, go to current period, summary, send progress for all tasks or manage timesheets. The app menu in the top left corner enables you to access the app settings, here you can switch to the tasks view or see the app settings. Below you will see screen shots of some of these features.
