How to edit the periods in Tempo ?

Hi community,

I'd like to know if it is possible to edit the periods in Tempo (and How) ? The default configuration is monthly but our organization needs a weekly period management. I can't find this information in the documentation.

Thanks for yout time,

Hi again,

I really need this information and I can't find it. Can you provide me some information ?


Hi Thomas. Periods are monthly. You can however set the Tempo Scheduler so that it blocks users from adding and editing worklogs within an Open Period after the closing date. The scheduler can be set to weekly or monthly.

So if i set the scheduler to weekly, after the "Next close" date users won't be able to add or edit their worklog ? Is that correct ?

In this case what is the use for Periods ?

I think I don't totally get it, so thank you for your precious explainations Benediky ! :)


I'm not sure that I understand that too.

What are the Periods for ?

Please come back to us as soon as possible! Thanks!


"Period mamagement" gives you the possibility to close the Timesheet for logging/ editing for all Tempo users (Team members and Users with Approve Timesheet permission) (

"Period" gives you the possibility to set a monthly period that is used for billing/ salary. The timesheet can be set to this period and it will show the required hours for this time. This period will not be closed automatically for logging or editing. (

The scheduler can be used to remind users to log their time and close the timesheet for logging/ editing. It is still possible to give users a "grace period". To do this, the period must be open in the Period management. (

Hope this helps

Kind regards,


Ok thank you, it is really much clear with your explanations.

Thanks again Susanne.


I used the scheduler to close the last week and it worked, thanks. But I tried to use the "grace period" for a user of my team by letting her 3 hours to complete her timesheet but it does not work : she is not able to edit her timesheet (for the period selected).

We use Tempo 7.9.2.

Is there a bug or do I something wrong ?

Thanks again for your precious help.


Can you confirm that the period is still open in the Period manager. If it is, can you create a ticket in our support project ( so we can better investigate this. Any additional information is appreciated (f.x. screenshots)

Yes the period is still open. I'm gonna create a ticket.

Thank you Susanne !

The ticket was created :

Thanks for your help.
