Logging time


The Time Tracking Log field allows one or many members to log time in hour / minute increments directly in a single field within a record. The field captures:

  • Member

  • Time (using natural language by typing things like 1h 30m, 1hr 30 mins, 8 hours)

  • Notes (up to 250 characters to specify activities or results from the work effort)

The field displays the Total Time logged as a summation across all time log entries.

Consider a use case for Client Engagements where service consultants track time spent on a particular task or project.

Display Formats & Options

Solution Managers can choose between two display formats - pill or text (date). Pill is the default option and you can customize the pill color. Solution Managers can make entries required as needed.
