Who uses document title tracking?
When you work with many different clients using the same tools and programs, document title tracking helps you understand how much time you've dedicated to each of your clients. All you have to do is give your documents descriptive titles. Switch between your clients and tasks as many times you want – the time will add up whenever you'll open the particular document.
As a manager, you can use document title tracking to see which tasks are being worked on without checking in every other day. Has the designer started to work on the infographic you ordered? Has your content marketer started to write the blog post you agreed on? Check that on DeskTime instead of repeatedly asking them for an update.
Freelancers, like agencies, work with many clients at the same time, so it's important to see precisely how many hours have been spent on certain tasks, for certain customers. The document title tracking feature is especially useful for multitaskers who tend to jump from one project to another – at the end of the day, you'll still see the total time spent on each of your client's tasks.
