  • Select Reports
  • Go to report (magnifying glass) and type Time Activities
  • Select TIME ACTIVITIES BY CUSTOMER DETAIL from the drop-down list
  • Run report and click customize if you need to remove or add columns.

That report should provide all the information related to the customer/job from Timesheet.
