To initiate time tracking by project, client, or task, your admin will first need to configure projects or clients by creating and optionally assigning them. For more information about creating projects and tasks, please read through this article.

Once projects are configured, the punch in workflow will automatically include client, project, or task selection. These selections will tag each punch to specific projects, clients, or tasks, and open up additional reporting and analytics capabilities.


And important note that project users may consider skipping the menu altogether by directly typing "in" or "out" to AttendanceBot. This allows for faster toggling across projects, especially since users tracking time to one project can switch to a different project with a simple "in," and avoid having to log out at all.

Once time has been tracked, there are 3 ways to use and consume the data.

1) The timesheet report will then reflect specific the project values. For those who want the most granular data, this report provides every single punch entry.

2) The Project report automatically aggregates time by day + employee + project/task/client. This simplifies the task of analysis in Excel, and also provides a nifty client billables or employee wage calculation if configured. 

3) The project tracking dashboard provides a powerful tool for slicing and dicing data, and viewing visualizations to describe time usage. From the "dashboard" --> time tracking --> project tracking, you'll find two powerful tabs.

  • Project View: for any selected time period, this tab summarizes employee time for each project or subproject, showing both a pie chart and area chart that can be toggled between daily, weekly, and monthly bins.
    • If you contact support, time can be summarized by department instead of by employee.
  • Employee View: for any selected time period, this tab summarizes project time for each employee, with similar navigation to the project view.
