Why should I track my time with monday.com?
When it comes to determining business efficiency, time tracking with monday.com South Africa is one of the simplest ways to go about it. It shows you what your business is spending the most time on. It also helps you distribute your resources more effectively. This can be done manually, by jotting down start and end times in an excel spreadsheet. Or you could use a timer that is embedded into your Project Management Office.
We prefer the latter for a few simple reasons. To start with, monday.com South Africa allows you to add time tracking to the tasks that need it. This means that you can give your team access to a timer that is associated with a task assigned to a project. They can then start the timer when they begin the task, pause it to take a break or two, and then eventually end it once they have completed it. It also allows for manual time entries as well as time amendments should the need arise.
Adding time tracking to a task on monday.com
Adding time tracking is as simple as clicking on the “+” button on your board, selecting “More Columns” and clicking on “Time Tracking”. Once added, your team will be able to start the timer when completing tasks.
You can also use this functionality to pull time logs on specific tasks and projects to see if they were completed within the deadline. You can also view the history of the log, which will show you who logged time, edited it and who did not log any time at all. All this data can be exported as an Excel file for reporting purposes.
