I am building a web site to allow users to track their work activity. The original purpose was to track your time when "in the field" (out of the office). If a user spends two days in the field on a task, they would submit a form specific to detailing that task. But we want to track in-office time as well. If they are in the office and spend four hours on one in-office activity and four hours on another, they could submit one form for that whole day. The web site will allow managers to generate totals of tasks performed for groups of users.

We want to use the word "Report" to describe the high-level summaries. So, you would go to the "Reports" page to generate a report involving multiple submissions. So, I don't want to use the word "Report" when talking about a SINGLE submission.

I can use any words I want, but I am stuck on finding two words (it could be three) to describe each submission. I have looked on thesaurus.com, but I can't find two words that go well together.

Some ideas:

Activity Form
Task Form
Task Submission
Field Activity Submission

If someone can suggest a single word that works, that would be fine as well.

  • That's called a Timesheet. The individual entries are... entries – Jim Aug 16 '17 at 14:31
  • Well, a timesheet is simply hours worked. There are additional fields the users have to enter, like equipment used, location, etc. – CigarDoug Aug 16 '17 at 16:58
  • A timesheet as I've used them is much more than hours worked. It contains fields for charge number (or project I'd) activity codes (which can break a project down to a fine level of granularity) and you certainly could add a field in yours for equipment code, location, etc – Jim Aug 16 '17 at 17:04

    So when you say "original purpose was to track your time when "in the field" (out of the office) ... But we want to track in-office time as well. If they are in the office and spend four hours on one in-office activity and four hours on another, they could submit one form for that whole day. The web site will allow managers to generate totals..." that's not really what you mean? – Jim Aug 16 '17 at 17:46

    Perhaps an activity/work summary? – vpn Aug 17 '17 at 5:18

Activity Analysis may work for you.

    Welcome to the site! Your answer has been downvoted (probably) because you don't give any detail. Is this a standard phrase in this context, or something that you made up to fit? What precisely does it mean? How does it differ from the suggestions in the question? – David Richerby Aug 16 '17 at 20:05
