Setting up ZeroTime™

Administrators must carry out the following steps before users can access ZeroTimeTM:

1. Set up data collectors

Collectors are apps that integrate with ZeroTime, that are used to gather information on an employee’s activities throughout the day. Employees can use that gathered information to populate their timesheets.

Refer to Understanding ZeroTime data collectors and Setting up and managing data collectors in ZeroTime for more information.

2. Set up ZeroTime users

ZeroTime users should be assigned the following settings in Replicon:

All users

  • A Replicon product that supports timesheets
  • A ZeroTime license


End users

This permission allows users to opt in and out of collector use, install user collectors, and view all available collectors. This permission is not required to use collector data to populate timesheets.

3. Make start and end time fields available to users, if desired

By default in notes, users record time by duration (i.e. they enter a number of hours). However, if you’d prefer users to record their start and end times in notes, you can allow this. You can also target only specific groups to use start and end times.

To enable Start Time and End Time fields:

  1. Go to the Settings tab.
  2. Select Enabled from the Start/End Time field.

  1. If you want to enable the setting for only particular groups, click Add Targeted Value and choose one or more groups.

You can enable the setting for different group configurations by clicking Add Targeted Value multiple times, and setting multiple group targets.

If you select any groups, fields will be enabled for the selected groups only.

  1. Click Save.


What languages does ZeroTime support?

ZeroTime supports English only.

How long is data retained in ZeroTime?

The system has a maximum 90 day data retention policy for all types of data. However, machine learning data is continually cleaned out of the system based on usage patterns, so it may not be retained for the full 90 days.

How do we enable Auto Populate mode?

Only end users can enable Auto Populate for their own account. This is because ZeroTime has to train on a user's data for a period before Auto Populate will work, and training for each user progresses at a different rate.
