This Wiki/Project is a work in progress and is subject to change.



oTTs, On-Time Timesheets, is an online system that allows Professors and Students to work collaboratively on System Design Projects. Seneca College's Computer Studies Department emphasizes strong team building skills, as achieves this through team projects. In the past, student and team progress have been monitored and maintained using conventional word processing documents. These conventional methods have proven to be difficult to synchronize between group members, and tended to lack substantial effort from those who were required to use them. oTTs creates an online environment where Professors and Students can work together to create and maintain Personal Timesheets and Group Project Files. By allowing easy maintenance of Projects and Students for the Professor, and simple manipulation functionality of Timesheets and Project Files for Students, oTTs takes the large task of Project maintenance, and makes it simple for all of those involved.

Project File

The project file contains all the tasks that a group has completed or is going to complete. All tasks are broken in Summary Tasks that categorizes these tasks. For example, Create Tables might be one task in your Database category.

Time is broken into hours, and fractions if necessary. For example, 3.33 hours represents 3 hours and 20 minutes. Which you can get by calculating (time you spent in minutes)/60


The calendar has coloured days for a quick analysis of future deadlines.

  • Purple days represent deadlines that the entire team is responsible for
  • Green days represent individual deadlines and timesheet deadlines
