DeskAway Introduces New Improved User Time Reports
Being able to manage and monitor time as an integral part of managing a project is an essential activity for any project manager. DeskAway’s time tracking feature helps project managers do just that and is, in fact, one of the most used parts of the application.
DeskAway also allows its users to link their accounts to a product called Freshbooks, allowing them to import time tracking information directly into DeskAway, but this lacks the detail behind time spend on particular parts of a project.
The improved user time reports, implemented in January, 2012, by DeskAway sees the introduction of charts into the User’s Detailed Work report. These charts now give the user a comprehensive overview of the amount of time a user has spent on a particular project. In fact, two charts have been introduced into this report:
- Time spent by Project: shows the user’s time spent across multiple projects. This report has a default set that shows the top seven projects. The priority here is based on the total time spent on each project by the user. If the users is involved in more than seven projects, the time for the remaining ones is categorized under the ‘Others’ option. A filter can also be applied to the projects displayed.
- Time spent by Activity: shows the user’s time spent across multiple projects organized by the type of activity.
