Allow people to choose rates based on each task entered in the schedule, or associate rates with a specific task within a project.
Budget tracking suggestion
I really need the project time reports to be more quickly readable. I used to use toggl and they have a beautiful visual layout that is quick and easy to uderstand. But I think the biggest challenge is that sub task need to add up and total major headings and these need to be more easily readable/separated with tabs, or separate lists, or be able to view only the major categories. Then I can get a quick view of the project status, and if there are issues, dive into the sub tasks to determine where the overruns are occuring.
When we click TRACK on a trello card, it starts the TimeCamp Counter. It would be nice to be able to open the trello card from the TimeCamp timesheet
What is the benefit?
This would allow to have a parent task as budget control which is usually (in our case) linked to a fixed overall budget.
For example: 80H - Product Portfolio Development (all subtasks are project level tasks for employes and don't have any influence on project budget)
All Subtasks can have budgets but are not accumulated with parent total.
We would really need this with Jira integration. Estimates for developers are not the same as fixed project time budgets.
Delete Task Validation suggestion
When a task is being deleted, the attached message is displayed - which is great, except, you are being lazy.
Computers should make my job easier. You should already know if I have tasks attached or if there are no entries, because I move them all to another project. So message should be more intelligent. this would save a lot of time checking and double checking to make sure I'm not deleting any tasks/entries.
Is this not OBVIOUS? Why do you need a suggestion for basic functionality?
Why use a computer, if you make me do all the work? Does anyone in your company actually use your product?
It could be very helpful if it was possible to approve individual time records in timesheet (with a label informing who did the approval).
Reason: in a flexible organisation model, where there are several task groups and some of the employees might perform e.g. two different tasks each for different task group, it is unconfortable for those task groups' leaders to synchronize their timesheet approvals: they have to agree on who will perform the approval and whether the time recorded in their project is approved by them or not. This is an unnecessary additional work to be done.
This feature would be even better if it was available also in the week view which provides more clarity.
Billable button contrast/visibility suggestion
When clicking the "$" button to indicate whether tracked time counts as billable only changes the color of the icon. It would be a lot more visible/clear/accessible if there was a background, say a round green circle when time is selected as billable and, a greyed out(?) background for the icon.
Team Messages suggestion
Would be nice to email certain groups, or my entire team to remind them to enter time, or other reminders. The specific use case is to remind those who have entered time but not submitted, but could prove useful for other business cases as well.
I think this used to work at some point but if I try to use search to find a task with accentuated chars, such as "Développement général" for instance, it doesn't find the task. the workaround is to type whatever chars that aren't accentuated, something like "veloppement" would work. Really annoying!
Tasks should inherit settings from projects and subtasks from tasks.
For instance, I have one general project (non billable) for many administrative tasks. I create those tasks, but while the project is non billable, I have to go back to projects and change the default each time, if I create the task while entering the activity. This alone takes one-two minutes away from productivity. The same for subtasks of a task.
It goes natural that a task in a billable project is billable and one in non billable is non billable. The same goes for tags and for person assigned to the task (I don't use it, but then again).
Japanese language setting praise
There are all other ways to over come language setting but
We will be delighted if you could add on a Japanese language setting.

I don't think I'm going to get much vote writing this in English, am I...
Anyway for everything else your UI's and all are beautifully designed !
Issues with Xero integration suggestion
Currently TimeCamp automatically imports ALL Xero Contacts regardless of whether they are Cusdtomers, Suppliers, or anything else - even Credit Card Companies. If I delete any from TimeCamp, the next time I open TimeCamp the deleted Contacts are back again. This is unworkable.
The best option would be to show a list from Xero, filtered by Contacts that are Customers, and allow the User to select the Customers to import.
The ability to delete computer activities directly from the timesheet without deleting the entire time entry. selecting the unwanted ones with the check boxes that are already there, but then have a delete selected option or something
Screenshot like remotecamp suggestion
please add the screenshot like you did on remotecamp. The screenshot section as it is right now is not useful.
here is an example that I found on the remotecamp website but you should have access to the real example aswell
I have a suggestion that definitively will help me (hopefully I'm not the only one). I'm currently a consultant and a developer. TimeCampas being working ok/acceptable but most of the time I need to use excel to finish my reports and invoices. because I need an extra field to add my effort time added to the time tracking. why?
- Sometimes I do work that takes more than what I can charge. so it is work/effort-time vs time track (start-stop timer)
- When I do system engineering/admin work I multitask. while the server is doing updates or installs I switch to other tasks for other projects or even other customers so I need to have time and notes for all those several tasks, and mainly want to track the actual effort time (works) since is what I will be charging to my customers.
- when having meetings I can't charge the whole time but want to keep track of the duration so I can measure the productivity of my day.
please share this request to the DevOps team.
Include finished tasks in mobile reports suggestion
Yet, the mobile reports in the Android app give no useful summary of time spent because as soon as a tasks (in Asana) get the status finished the tracked time for this task is no longer included in the reports.
It'd be great for the ability, in the android or web app, to collapse 'tasks' into single tile item with a timer start/stop button and the amount of time spent on that task that day. Then I can hit the start timer button on that task, or hit the start timer button on another task causing the first to auto stop. It would function just the same as the system does now, keeping track of the starts/stops as separate line items. But I don't need to see that list all the time and it's distracting. Just want some tiles, start/stop, title, and total time committed.
Great system! Keep up the good work.
