Report Time

Time spent on activities and cards can be reported by each workspace member. Time can be reported in hours and minutes. There are three ways to report time:

  • Report time on activities in the Time reporting tool. This is the most suitable option if you don't break down the activities further into cards and/or if you want to time report on several assignments at once, for example at the end of the week.
  • Report time on a single activity. This is the most suitable option if you have a need to continuously report on one or a few activities.
  • Report time on a card. This is the most suitable option if you want to do ongoing time reporting, for example every day, or if you want to report time on cards that are not associated to an activity.

Report Time on Activities in the Time Reporting Tool

In the Time reporting tool, you can report time on activities from workspaces that you are a member of.

You can only report time on leaf activities (i.e. activities without any sub activities).

The time reported on individual cards are also included in the time reporting tool, under the activity that the card belongs to. You can also add comments to each card entry in the comments box. If the time entries are removed from the card, they are removed from the time reporting tool as well.
