The Offline Timesheet module for Web TimeSheet allow users to modify and submit timesheets while they are not connected to internet. The offline timesheet is an HTML form that you set up and then e-mail to your computer. You can then use the form to record your hours while you are offline. When you are once again connected to the Internet, you can save and/or submit the data you recorded.
