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.
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.
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.
I have a client who keeps "missing" the emails because they all pile under the same archived email, because with Gmail things do that when the subject line is always the same. He wants the email to come with the new invoice number on it. It would be cool to have that as an Option. Other of my clients like it that the invoices all stick together, then they know where to find them!
I also REALLY want to be able to set the default text in the email so I don't have to modify it each time, or just live with the text that is automatically supplied.
Time records for invoices suggestion
In the API documentation I can see that you store the Invoice ID for each time record. However, I can't find it in the UI. It would be great if I could filter time records by invoice number and get the invoice number on exports. It would also be great to have a button next to an invoice where I can get to the filtered list of time records.
You all suffer from typical clean interface design disease where you think that lack of text makes an app easier to use.
Is a user really supposed to intuit that a clock means timesheet entry, a pie chart means reports, and a file folder means projects?? More over, why should I have to remember that, when the text descriptions served as fine navigation bar entries in the past?
At least have some mercy and add a hover tooltip that tells what the icons are for.
Estimates Report was previously sorted by Name.
It is now sorted by Tracked from highest amount of time to lowest.
We use Estimates Report to See if Time is Staying within the Estimated Hours for the Project.
Is the Old Estimates Report available?
It would also be helpful to have a percentage overage for how many extra hours were tracked over the estimated hours.
There is no Estimates button in the Custom Reports.
One thing that bugs me all the time is that whenever I click 'Show report for this task' in the Timesheet, I expect to see the total hours. And every time, I must go and select "All time" to see them. It's very annoying.
It would be nice if either the state persists once it's selected, or if it could be set from the settings as a default.
It would be good if you could select computer time on a given application/file/document and convert it to a time sheet record by assigning it to a task.
Zendesk App push update in Timecamp suggestion
When you start logging time in Zendesk, you can't see the logged time until TC syncs the information between Zendesk and TC.
Solution: When you start logging time in Zendesk the app pushes the data on the ticket to TC.
Merging Projects or Tasks suggestion
There has been many instances where a staff member can create a project that already exists because of an error or an improper search or even when it comes to spacing of a company name when creating a project (ex. J&G Restorations vs J & G Restorations, etc.). Or some items that were accidentally created by staff as a project that should of just been a task under another category.
This has lead to having some duplicate projects or tasks that have been created. We need a way to be able to merge these projects or tasks without losing all of the data entered in them. Currently we would have to manually change each entry in Time Camp in order to not avoid losing anything. There needs to be a quicker and more effective way to doing this.
Seems like an easy enough function that should be implemented especially for companies, like ours, who have hundreds (soon to be thousands) of projects and work on multiple projects on the same day with multiple entries where these type of errors are more prevelant
in custom report the only option is that the weekly entries are descending, so first you see last week. We would like to make a monthly report starting with the first (oldest) week and ending with the last week.
Too many company integrations (which are cyclically linked and duplicative at that) - Jira + Asana -> JIRA). If a user that never uses JIRA or Asana could configure themselves to "hide" or otherwise ignore those issues it would avoid a lot of "flooding" and overload of the dropdown and improve perofrmance.
It would be good to allow users to select which columns are included in "Detailed" Time Report.
As is today, you have to move the columns you want at the beginning in the order you want them, produce the export to Excel, and then get rid of the columns you do not want.
It would be also good to allow users to Save the newly defined report.
Copying entries suggestion
A very useful enhancement of the "Week" view would be a copy facility for an entry to be able to add it to another day, e.g. for a recurring meeting entry "Copy" and "Paste" to future times. This is much quicker / accurate than the dialog for copying to a single future timepoint in "Day" view / copy entry.
