Time Tracking (Available in Advanced Plans)

Tracking Time 

TeamGantt now takes the guesswork out of tracking the amount of time you spend working on a task. To make it easy, there are multiple places where you can start tracking your time. 

From My Tasks

At the start of each day, or the start of a new task, we suggest going to My Tasks located in the left sidebar menu. 

When you begin your first task for the day, select the clock icon to begin tracking time:

Select Start Timer to start the clock! (Alternatively, manually enter time for a task that you've already worked on):

The timer will continue to record the time spent on until Stop Timer is selected. You can stop the timer by selecting the green ticker at the top of your window or the purple clock icon next to the task itself.

When stopping the time tracker, you also have the option to select a different task to attribute the tracked time to, update your task's overall percent complete, and add a comment to the task:

Stopping the timer will automatically log the time you spent on your task to your Time Sheet.

Note: Time can only be tracked on a single task at a time. You'll need to punch out of one task to begin tracking time on the next. 


From Gantt or List view in your project

Track time directly in your project by:

  • Hovering over the task and selecting the gray clock icon that appears next to the task's name. Or, 
  • Selecting the green clock icon at the top of your project

Select Start Timer to start the clock! (Alternatively, manually enter time for a task that you've already worked on):

The timer will continue to record the time spent on until Stop Timer is selected. You can stop the timer by selecting the green ticker at the top of your window or by selecting the gray clock icon that appears next to your task's name and "punching out":

When stopping the time tracker by using the green ticker, you also have the option to select a different task to attribute the tracked time to, update your task's overall percent complete, and add a comment to the task:


From your Time Sheet

Your Time Sheet is a dashboard of all of your tracked time across all of your projects. Access your Time Sheet from the left sidebar menu:

From here, you will be taken to a screen that shows tasks assigned to you for the current week. Use the toggle to view tracked time for previous or future weeks. 

In the below example, 4 hours were spent on "Determine Competitors" and 8 minutes were spent on "Determine Budget" on Thursday, July 12: 

To enter, or edit, time for a task, simply click into the time field and enter in the hours and minutes (H:MM) you worked on the task. 


Viewing tracked time in Gantt view

To easily view all tracked time in your project, enable the Actual Hours column from your View menu: 

This will show you all tracked time for each task, group of tasks, and the project as a whole. 


Reporting for Time Tracking (For Account Holders)

To generate reports for an individual or team, Account Holders can access Reports from the lefthand toolbar. Then, select Time Tracking:

From here, you will be given the opportunity to customize the report you need. You can filter by date range, person, and/or project. Once your parameters are set, click Update Report to get hourly totals:

Download your report by selecting Download CSV.
