Online Time Tracking Simplified: How Much Time is Left on my Project?

John Reeve | January 14th, 2013 | , , ,

Comparing time estimates with the actual time tracked is a cornerstone of good project management practice. A project manager who can  calculate the amount of time left on a project is able to make more informed decisions — for example, reducing scope to complete the project under budget, or pulling in more people to complete the project by deadline. Fortunately, online time tracking software Intervals makes this an easy task.

The Project Landscape Report, Online Time Tracking Software

The Project Landscape report supports several different views of your ongoing projects. The Time tab, pictured above, displays estimated and actual hours. Because Intervals allows you to estimate the amount of time at the project and task levels, both of these estimates are included on the report. The actuals columns are broken down by unbillable and billable time. And, of course, the total and remaining columns give us the big picture for the project.

This online report is a high level view of time tracking data, data that can help a project manager complete the project on time and under budget.
