Time Tracking in Hubstaff Tasks

Time tracking is now available on Hubstaff Tasks. Our web timer will allow you and your team to see how much time your team has logged to a specific task. Now you’ll be able to see how much time is actually being spent on each task and be able to compare it to the estimated time.

All time data will be stored within the Work Logs section of the task itself. If you’d like more in-depth reporting, and be able to see total time tracked to the whole project or time spent on all tasks in one report, sign up for Hubstaff. We have deep reporting capabilities that provide valuable insight into the total amount of time spent across all projects and tasks.
