I wish I could move the task cards freely among the week and days or even copy and paste them.
Clean up / Check data suggestion
I changed the setting that allow to move computer activities in to different tasks. The result of this was terrible. Time consumed is no longer between task end minus task start calculation. With this setting "Time" is not affected by editing the start and stop time.
There should be a clean up function scanning for difference in "Time" and stamp duration.
Display lines in a report with possibility to correct "Time" to the time spent between start and stop.
Let's talk Wunderlist Integration alternatives
Know your options before the app is gone on May 6
The bad news: Microsoft has finally decided to shutter Wunderlist. The shut down is planned for May 6.
That means you've got about four months to figure out where you'll track your tasks (and how to get all your history and existing to-dos into your new app).
The good news: Microsoft has replaced it with Microsoft Todo, a parallel project.
As it stands, if I have automated activity tracking on, it will track my time even if I also have a calendar entry booked in the same time period. I'd like to have the option of having one override the other so that I'm not double tracking my time
We would like to use TimeCamp reports to replace our existing method of submitting weekly reports. The way permissions are set up for projects/programs, too much visibility is provided to all "Project Managers" of tasks. It would be great if the notes field could be configured so that this data is only available to the direct supervisor or above, rather than anyone with project manager access to the the Project. This way, there is no concern that sensitive information in reports can be queried by people other than the person's manager, and therefore makes it possible to use these as weekly reports which highlight barriers or obstacles.
Subtotals for Invoices suggestion
Would be nice to have a sum total of hours completed for an invoice, as well as a total cost for an invoice below the "Services" category, as well as the "Products" category. Sort of like a subtotal for each section of the invoice.
Ability to assign calendar to project suggestion
I am currently working on various projects, with unique calendars (Apple, Outlook, Google, Google Project 1, Google Project 2) and project management tools, Asana, etc...
Through the calendars features, I can add one calendar to another, and through one calendar I can actually see the full scope of all my calendars, so that is great, but it is a nightmare actually keeping track how much work has been done for each project, according to each task.
It would be great, if we could assign a calendar to a project, so that any meeting added to project 1 calendar, is then added and accounted for in project 1 in timecamp automatically.
When the timer is running, I often forget to click stop, and end up with eg 23hrs writing an email. It would be good to have the option to be asked, whether you´re still working, if no activity is detected for 5, 10, 20 etc minutes. And if no user input is given, the timetracking is automatically stopped. Would be great to have the option to have tracking running in the background automatically stopped.
Hide from timesheet suggestion
Please give us a category to hide activities from the timesheet. It would be super useful to hide background applications like antivirus, anti-malware, etc.
So the application will still be tracked but if the [activity x] get marked as a category [hide] it does not show on the timesheet.
New Desktop App Bug Fixes suggestion
We switched over to the new desktop application in our office and really like it compared to the old app. However, computer tracking is not working on any computers in our office (Windows 10). I would like to continue to use the new app instead of going back to the older version just to get the computer tracking to work...
When I click 'tax' on an invoice, the site crashes error Checked
I lose the invoice I'm working on. This is a recent issue.
Required Tasks/Subtasks suggestion
Itd be great if when selecting a project with task/subtasks, it forced you to select a task/subtask. Right now, you can select a project with tasks/subtasks, and it lets you just select the project. If it were to force you to select a task/subtask, itd be much easier and keep for entry errors happening.
Project - Making Widgets
Task - Blue Widget, Red Widget, Yellow Widget
Subtask - Gluing, Wrapping, Boxing.
When you pick Making widgets, you're REQUIRED to pick red blue or yellow, then you're REQUIRED to pick gluing, wrapping, boxing
Adding Fields for Output suggestion
for some projects, there is an output of that project ie making widgets. Right now I just know how long I spent on creating those widgets, not how many were made during that time. Itd be great if there was an additional field where output could be put. My suggestion would be adding 2 additional fields: one for the output and one for how that output is measured ( widgets, cups, eaches, boxes, etc). So Id be able to select a project - Making Widgets, Task - Blue widgets, SubTask - Putting on Wheels, OUTPUT - 300, MEASUREMENT - Cases.
Itd be an amazing help to be able to spot pinch points in the project.
A competitor has this feature. I work remotely (different region) from my client and if there is a way for the app to select a specific time zone so it doesn't get confusing for everyonem that would be great.
Definable work stages for projects suggestion
All of our projects move through individually invoiced stages that don't overlap. It would be really useful to be able to define the start and end date of each stage in a project so that any automatically recorded entries that fall within that date range could be tagged with that particular project stage. If a report function was also developed then this would make it really simple to compare the quoted time for a piece of work with the actual time spent doing it and would allow us to either adjust future billing or it would highlight where staff might need further training.
The only way around this I have found so far is to define subtasks for projects and have a sub-task for each stage. However, because we don't change the project number when moving from stage to stage there is no new unique keyword that we can use for any stage that will differentiate it from any other stage of the project. This means that each user has to manually select work stages for every task that is recorded, which start to make the automatic nature of TimeCamp a lot less effective and takes us back toward using manual timesheets that we used prior to moving to TC.
Support for Webhooks suggestion
A great addition to the TimeCamp platform would be to support webhooks. Beeing able to register http requests on TimeCamp events would be nice. Something like this would allow us to connect with any platform that doesn't have a specific integration yet, such as Microsoft Flow. It would be perfect to automate task and link with other systems.
Ability to back date project tracking suggestion
We often find that it would be useful to track how much time was spent on a particular file, but only added the task or keyword after we had started. It would be useful to be able to search back through past entries and assign them to the new task. This often happens when something appears to be a quick task but ends up taking somebody a lot longer to work through, so it would be useful to be able to put a cost against it.
