Use TimeS with Task Work Item
Once the support is added to one of the projects from Team Foundation Server we can start filling up the entries in TimeSheet via Task work item. You can open any existing work item of type task or create a new one. You can enter number of hours for any task which has been assigned to you. No proxy entries are allowed. The calendar will be disabled for proxy entries.

Enter data in TimeSheet tab
Select the client of your choice (Visual Studio/ Web Access/ MS Excel) and connect to the Team Project to which TimeS support is already added. Open the task for which you need to enter data. With the support to TimeS a new tab is automatically added to the work item with the name as TimeSheet. Once you select the tab it shows you a calendar control with the current week selected. You can enter data up to the data on which you are entering data and not ahead. You can enter data for last 3 months not before that.

Validations for Data Entry
There are certain validations while entering data in the TimeSheet. The developer cannot enter more than 24 hours for a single day. These hours are calculated across the work items for that day. For any day, a single entry for any work item cannot exceed 24 hours. There are no restrictions for entering data for weekends.
