Time tracking

Teamwork’s time tracking capability allows users to see time spent on individual work and projects (Figure A), making it easy for users to log entries to individual tasks on the project or to the project itself.

Each user has project-level permissions on each project where they are a member, and their ability to log time depends on their access level. However, collaborators cannot be granted access to log time. Additionally, Teamwork offers five time-logging options: manual time logging, timer, log time via email, desktop timer and Chrome extension.
