Tracking Time on Projects

Insightful's advanced time tracking capabilities enable you to monitor the actual hours employees spend on various projects. The feature provides accurate data on how long different tasks take helping you manage resources more effectively and plan future projects with greater accuracy.

Additionally, precise time tracking results in fair and accurate payroll processing, directly linking work performed to compensation, essential for maintaining transparency and trust within teams.

The feature is enhanced by the Insightful Widget, a user-friendly interface that allows employees to easily start and stop task timers.

Overview of Project Status and Details

Insightful's Projects Dashboard is like a centralized hub for overseeing all aspects of project management. It offers a comprehensive overview of projects, including names, assignees, tasks, total and clocked time, costs and more.

The dashboard gives you a quick snapshot of project status, showing key metrics like progress, timelines and resource allocation all in one place. This helps you see which projects are on schedule and which might need extra attention. It's designed to boost transparency and communication within teams, aligning project goals with overall business objectives.

Insightful's Project Dashboard also enables users to create and manage tasks and projects directly within the platform.

Managing Project-related Tasks

Insightful's Kanban-style Task overview board is a visual tool that organizes all tasks related to Insightful-native projects into columns like To Do, In Progress and Done, offering teams a clear view of a specific project's workflow.

It supports progress tracking and quick adjustments, making it easier to identify and address bottlenecks. It enhances team collaboration and project transparency by allowing everyone involved to see updates in real time.

The Task overview board is only available for projects created within the Insightful app.
