What is the Epic Sum Up Time Sheet?
The Time Sheet is a useful feature that Epic Sum Up offers. With Epic Sum Up, you can quickly and easily generate Time Sheets that will show you how long each team member spent on each issue.
What is the Value of the Time Sheet?

How to create a worklog report
1.Open Time Sheet
Within Epic Sum Up, go to the Summary Panel on the right hand side of the screen. At the bottom of the Summary Panel, click on the share icon and choose Time Sheet from the menu to open it up.
2.Select the date-range of your sheet
After you have opened the Time Sheet in Epic Sum Up, navigate to the calendar All icon. Clicking on this icon will open up a calendar view, from which you can select the date-range of your choice. Alternatively you can select one of the available Presets.
3.Filter your worklogs to display the information that you wish to report on.
In the upper left portion of the screen in your worklog report, you will see a Group By dropdown menu. Click on this, and you will see a menu of options which include: Issue, Author, and Worklog Date.
4.Sort and filter the report using worklog columns of your choice
You also have the option to sort and filter worklog report data using columns. These columns include: Issue, Author, Comment, Working date, and Spent Time (h).
