What is the Task Tracker Plugin?
The Task Tracker plugin is a simple time management plugin that’s designed for employers. This feature is an easy way for employees to track daily tasks that are logged in a specific timeframe.
As an admin, you can generate reports to see what tasks your employees are working on.
Common use cases for the Task Tracker plugin include:
Tracking employee work shifts
Tracking employee travel time
Tracking employee breaks
Tracking specific tasks or projects
On the user side, an employee just needs to open the app, select the task they’re working on, and start the tracker. Once they finish the task, they’ll open the app again to log the time.
How to Use the Task Tracker Plugin
The steps below explain how to set up the Task Tracker plugin, add tasks, and export reports.
Step #1: Add Activities
First, you need to determine what types of activities you want to track. For the purposes of this tutorial, let’s say we just want to track employee work shifts and employee travel time.
Name the activity, then click the “Add Activity” button from the “Content” tab of the editor:
After you add new activities, they’ll appear at the bottom of the editor. New reports will automatically be registered when you complete this action.
Step #2: Start Tracking
On the app user side, the plugin will automatically show the current date and time when they open the app.
Then they just need to click “Start Shift” to proceed.
Next, they’ll be prompted to select the activities from the options you added in the previous step. Then they need to click the “Save” button to start tracking.
Step #3: Log the Ending Time
Once the activity is over, the employee needs to re-open the app and click “Submit Shift.”
Step #4: Generate Reports
As an admin, you can access CSV reports to see how employees are spending their time.
Just navigate to the “Reports” menu, and click “Export CSV.” You can generate reports for 30, 60, or 90 days.
A CSV file will automatically download with the data.
