How do employee choose a project name when they fill in their timesheet? Or how to link time cost to porjects?

Here is an example: Alex worked from 8am to 10am on a project on 14th July.
how do we get Alex's time to both show on the project tracking page as well as on his timesheet for that day at the same time?


I have read this post below:

and also this youtube video:


I still am confused about how timesheet and projects are linked.

My understanding is all employees who worked on different projects should be able to choose which projected they worked on for each day of the week while filling in their timesheet. And this is done through their individual payroll portal. I do not find this feature available however. The timesheet only let you to set start and finish time for each day and fill in a description.

In the project, we can add time cost for example employee named Alex who worked on 14th July for 3 hours. However, once saved this 3 hours does not show up on Alex's timesheet when we go to check his timesheet.

The other way to add time to project is click the "Plus" sign, choose "weekly timesheet" and add time worked for Alex under a certain project. That only allows you to input the number of hours worked on certain day. And that does not show up on his timesheet either. In fact employees should only be give their payroll portal to fill in their timesheet.

so how do we get Alex's time to both show on a project he worked on 14th July as well as on his timesheet for that day at the same time?

thanks very much in advance?
