What are "Tasks"?
Tasks allow you to further break down your tracked time, not only by projects but also by adding specific tasks that are part of a larger project. This feature helps you categorize your time more effectively. Tasks are created and used in a manner similar to projects but offer additional customization options. Here's what you can do with tasks:
Add it to a Project:
You can associate tasks with specific projects, providing a detailed breakdown of the work involved.
Assign to Other Users:
Admins, managers, and owners can assign tasks to specific users, facilitating collaboration and task delegation.
Set Due Dates:
You can establish deadlines by which tasks should be completed, helping to manage project timelines effectively.
Tasks can be categorized into different progress statuses like Backlog, To Do, In Progress, or Done.
Provide detailed information about the task, ensuring everyone understands the scope and requirements.
Set Urgency Levels:
Tasks can be categorized by urgency level - Low, Medium, High, or ASAP - helping prioritize work.
Apply labels to tasks for easy categorization and quick identification of similar tasks.
Set Task-Specific Hourly Rates:
You have the flexibility to assign specific hourly rates for individuals working on a task, ensuring accurate billing and cost allocation.
Specify Estimated Time:
You can input an estimated duration for each task, providing a guideline for completion.
