Hubstaff’s time tracking platform integrates directly with Hubstaff Tasks, our Kanban project management software.
Hubstaff Tasks is a simple agile project management solution that has the tools you need to get more done. Visual boards and columns allow you to keep work moving in the right direction and see all of your team’s tasks at a glance, along with overarching goals. Build projects and plan your week at the same time. It’s easy to set up, keep moving, and get a bird’s-eye view of projects.
With the two platforms connected, you can have your projects and users linked in both products. This allows you to have your team track time using the time tracking apps and have that time sync back over to Hubstaff Tasks and appear on the tasks.
In Hubstaff Tasks, you can easily set up custom workflows so you can move tasks ahead with a click, and skip all the steps of alerting and assigning others. This is Agile project management at its best including Sprints and Stand-ups. Create, update, or delete a task in Hubstaff Tasks, and Hubstaff will adjust in a matter of seconds.
