How to track time on tasks ONLY and disallow project tracking

Disallow Project Tracking

The easiest way to prevent users from tracking time against a project and only allow them to track time against tasks is by disallowing project tracking. This will add a restriction to the desktop client which will force them to track time against tasks strictly, and not to the parent project.

NOTE: When tracking on projects is not allowed, users won’t be able to edit time manually for those projects.

To learn how to access this setting, follow the steps below:

Step 1

Click on the “Integrations” tab on the left sidebar, then click on your integration or choose a project management tool if you haven’t integrated with one yet. Feel free to check out our complete list of integrations and their step-by-step guides.

IMPORTANT: You may need to refresh the desktop client to fetch for these changes.
