Stop Watch Feature to Track Time Spent on a Task

There is no easy way to track your time on a task. If you have a work request, once you accept the work and it moves over to your working on, there should be a stop watch function in view. When someone is working on the task, they can click start time, the stop watch starts tracking the time, 1 minute 2 minute 15 minutes 1 hour and 5 minutes, etc. you may need to stop the time to go to a meeting or maybe someone is at your tasks, if you stop the time the total stop watch time is added in logged time for you, you can start the stop watch again when you work on it again! This will make tracking time easier and accurate!

Agreed! I can't believe this is not an out of the box solution with WF. Big limitation in the functionality in my opinion. The 3rd party creator requires a $1300/year subscription for it.

Tyler - that is crazy, I just think its inefficient as well as inaccurate having users try to track their time. I hope this is something workfront considers in the future.

I liked this idea. I've seen Developers at my previous agency use a java clock to track their work time, allocated later to some other tool. I was hoping when a person is assigned something and they click "Work on it" a clock option could appear whereby they track their time, IF TIMESHEETS APPLY TO THEIR ROLE. Another sneaky way Management could track tasks and have better insights, not for billable time, but rather weighing resourcing, is the timing begins behind the scenes and for all "like for like tasks", a report could be generated and thus, analyzed/applied to the needs of resourcing. For my 400 users, this would be excellent, as we are internal and do not bill for our time, but want to see what weighs down the teams the most and focus on those areas.

Thanks for submitting the idea!! 🙂

I have voted for that idea! Thank you for sending the link. Our team is using the stopwatch feature on google chrome and considering paying the money as it makes it so easy, but we are really hoping it becomes an included feature. Crossing my fingers!

This would be a good in-app feature. Currently, our content developers track their start time for the day on paper then add the time in Workfront at the end of the day. This feature would make it easy with one click to start a timer at the beginning of the day and another click at the end of the day or whenever they finish a task throughout the day. Hope it gets enough support!

LOVE this idea! Having a "timer" that you can stop and start again as you work and get pulled away from your work would be an incredible benefit to our organization.
