Hack Day Project – Making timesheets fun (ish)

Timesheets or death! As much as we all dislike doing timesheets, Aleks (keeper of time, wrangler of developers) sends us lovingly crafted reminder emails featuring sad cat memes to remind us to do them on time or else. As someone who loves front end and user experience, I wanted to make the ‘Timesheeting’ experience better for everyone. I decided to make a series of themes for our timesheet app. I thought it would be great to have a new theme each week. It didn’t take long and so i set up some rules to make it easy, each theme would have a background, a font colour and header background. Cool. I then set this to change out each week.
