How to Add Time Entries for a Task


It is important to track the amount of time that is spent on a project. This time period is determined by the amount of time that is spent on each task/sub-tasks by users and teams. With ProProfs Project, tracking the time spent on each task/sub-task is made easier with the time entry feature. Time Entries are made by the users who enter the approximate time they have spent on a task or sub-task.


Benefits of Time Entries:

  • Is used to calculate the total time on a project, which is further used to generate the invoice
  • Used to generate the user reports which can be used to gauge their performance
  • Can be used to find tasks that create bottlenecks by filtering out time entries according to tasks
