Task-based time tracking
First of all, to track time in Everhour you should have a connection of any project + any task created.
Our task-based tracking approach enhances employee organizational skills and helps to focus on the time used. When you build a structure of a project with tasks, it is easier to understand how much time went on this project. How?
You have one task for all team members and see the result of everybody in the same activity, instead of dealing with tons of duplicates. Imagine, you have 10 members in your team running various meetings daily. To track this time, you create a task “Ad-hoc meeting”. At the end of the month, you see one task with everyone reported time there. Each may otherwise call the same meeting differently, and finally, you’ll face a report with 200-time entries about the same thing (20 days x 10 users).
Task-based time tracking is the easiest way to report to a client on what work you spend the time they paid for.
Some of your teammates may find it futile and even inconvenient compared to entering a few words of what they do and hit the timer button. However, our experience shows us that task time tracking makes everything a way more organized, clear and easy to read. It’s lit to see the work of the team in scope and analyze the whole progress. You’ll definitely see it for yourself after using the app for a couple of weeks.
After all, we want to become more and more efficient at what we do and understand how much time we spend on this and on that, not just to track time out of curiosity.
