We announced that we were working on Time Tracking in our latest roadmap article back in July. After months of elaboration, iteration, and beta-testing with hand-picked clients, we are proud to release Time Tracking in Azendoo.
Azendoo already enables you and your team to manage and organize your work, collaborating and accomplishing more together. With Time Tracking activated, you will be able to track your team’s time collaboratively and right in the middle of the action. You will also be able to identify tasks or projects that take more time than others, and learn to better anticipate and plan for the future.
Time tracking has always been the most requested feature by Azendoo users. We feel that it is now time to integrate Time Tracking capabilities, with analytics that allow you to learn from how you spend your time, in order to take action and be more efficient as a team.
Track how much time you spend in your tasks
Time is tracked in tasks. Each task has two Time Tracking fields: Time spent and Time planned.
The concept is that you can add the amount of time that you “planned” or estimated to spend on that particular task, and add time spent whenever you make progress. When you mark the task as done, you can compare the time spent vs the time planned on each task.
This method of tracking time enables you to set goals for each task in terms of amount of time spent. We already know that setting and sharing goals is beneficial to you and your team. You can now set mini-goals at the task level, which aggregates toward set goals for your subjects.
Collaborative time tracking
Azendoo tasks are collaborative in their DNA. Even if there is only one assignee on a task, other team members can contribute through comments and documents, as well as by accomplishing subtasks.
They can now also add their own time spent on tasks, which will be added to the total time spent on the task. These contributions make the time tracking data more accurate and reflect what actually happened.
The subject time tracking analytics panel allows you to get insights on your subject status. You can see at a glance how much time is remaining, who contributed to the subject, how the subject evolved, and have access to detailed data analysis.
The detailed data analysis is there to give you all the data available on your subject time tracking, so you can dive in and identify where your team is performing well, and where it lacks the time or resources to have things run smoothly. It is then up to you to take action to adjust and become more efficient as a team.
The workspace level analytics makes tracking how your team spends their time easier, but also makes analyzing multiple subjects possible. With the subject filter, select the subjects you want to analyze.
The graph on this view depicts how much time was spent per day by your team - highlighting the most productive days. The total time spent by subject and by team member, in the form of donut charts, make it easy to evaluate where your team’s time was spent.
Select a period on all your analytics views to analyze how your team spent their time during a specific timeframe. This means making timesheets will be tenfold easier than before.
Track your time in Azendoo to save some
Tracking your time directly in Azendoo reduces the number of apps you use and also increases the accuracy of the available data. There is no need for you to duplicate your tasks in a separate app, to constantly switch apps, and to ask your team members what they have been working on.
Enter your time spent directly in Azendoo, right where you’re organizing and collaborating on your work, and take advantage of the advanced reports to identify what your team has been working on.
Track your time everywhere
Since Azendoo is available as a web application as well as on mobile and desktop, you can now track your time anywhere. Get our mobile apps so your team members can easily add their time from their mobile devices.
We are already developing additions to these features. Coming next are time tracking data export, team member dashboard, and much more.
Your feedback will be the main factor for how we prioritize the next features on time tracking, so please let us know your thoughts.
