We count "active users".

For your specific use case, if timesheets are not recorded by every user, you can create users that are not active. (Users can not log in to timesheet, but someone can register timesheet for them)

We do not count users through the portal, like customers and partners.

> The reason i am asking is that we are considering upgrading to the enterprise edition (little late now that recently they have changed their pricings) , but the HR TimeSheet module forces me to create lots extra users that will never login.
> In order to fill a TimeSheet an employee NEEDS to be attached to a user, but all these production employees will never ever login to odoo, and thus never use it.
> This meaning with the new pricing system per user its going to be a shitload of extra costs and wasted money (~ $5000 per year considering 50 extra never to be used accounts)
> Considering our growth this amount will double within a year.. but the ACTUAL odoo users will more or less stay the same
