Time Tracking in Hubstaff Tasks

Time tracking is now available on Hubstaff Tasks. The web timer allows you and your team to see how much time has been 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 the 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.

When a Hubstaff Tasks organization is linked to a Hubstaff (time tracking) organization, the timers will work synchronously while tracking time to a task. This requires projects between platforms to be linked.

Only time tracked using the timer apps will sync back time to the Worked section of the task.
