Overview: The Time Entry (Duration) feature allows users to enter their total amount of hours worked as opposed to punching in or out.

Common Use Cases: This feature is commonly used for tracking salaried employees' work hours. It's also used when employees only need to track the amount of time spent on a particular project or task as opposed to the hours worked.
