Day 11: Track your work days instantly with the new Clock In/Clock Out feature

Posted by: Gráinne Forde /

During Teamwork Projects’ 12 Days of Features, we’re delivering a brand new feature every day to help you improve your productivity into the new year and beyond.


On the eleventh day of Christmas, Teamwork gave to me… a super-helpful Clock In/Clock Out feature!

Logging time on individual projects and tasks is an easy way for many companies to track hours and improve the accuracy of project proposals — but not every business needs to run that way. Our new Clock In/Clock Out feature lets your team record their hours at work each day without having to log time on individual tasks.

Accurate reporting

This feature is perfect for logging time for salaried employees or team members who don’t need to post totals for their hourly work. Team members can see how many hours they’ve worked each day, week, or month in an easy-to-read bar chart or a list of entries, and admins can get a quick overview of their team’s hours at a glance.

Track Your Work Days Instantly with the New Clock-in Clock-out Feature

For companies that also use logged time for tasks, this tool gives them a way to compare logged daily hours to logged task hours.

Flexible and adaptable

Companies with remote teams or flexible scheduling will love this new feature. Team leads and managers can easily see who has clocked in for the day, so there’s no guessing about people’s daily schedules. And if employees need to leave for a doctor’s appointment or to pick up their children from school, they can just clock out to take care of it.

Need to work late or on the weekend? This feature means you can clock in out of hours and make sure that your contribution doesn’t get overlooked just because it happened outside of the usual 9-to-5. Instead, it enables team leads and managers to see exactly how many hours each person is working during the week — which is important data to have on hand.

If you’ve enabled the Teamwork Beta Program on your account, you can enable the Clock In/Clock Out feature for owner company users or for all users on your site.

To enable the feature, first click your profile icon in the top right of your site and select Settings from the dropdown menu.

Note: Only owner company site administrators can access the site settings.

In the Settings area, select the Beta Program tab. Here, you will see an option for Clock In/OutToggle the switch on the left to enable the feature. You can also select whether to enable it for your owner company only, or for all users on your site:

clock out

Once enabled, you and your users will see the clock in or clock out option in your profile navigation menu:

When you are clocked in, a timer icon will be displayed beside your profile icon.

To clock out, select your profile icon and choose Clock Out from the dropdown menu.

Viewing and editing entries

To see your logged times, choose the Time tab in your profile, and then select In Work. You’ll see a graph displaying the number of hours you worked each day with a log for each time period that you clocked in. You can delete or edit each entry using the three dots to the left of each time entry.

That’s it! If you have more questions, check out or help doc for the answers.

We have only one more gift to give to you tomorrow, and it’s one of the best! Leave us a comment below with a guess about what it could be.

Hey Matthew

You can manually edit your time logs if you forget to clock out – it’s happened us here on more than a few occasions!

Thanks for the heads up!
We’ll replace the video with the correct version 🙂

A solution that would allow time tracked in a spreadsheet (excel) to be uploaded in team work would be incredibly useful. Teamwork time tracking interface is way too clunky to input mass or old time into the system

Hi Ryan

Yes if you go to the Companies page you’ll be able to scroll down and see the overall time logged for each company.

Since this feature is still in Beta, we’re interested to hear what expectations you guys have for it – so keep the feedback coming!
You can send feedback directly from the Beta section of your site or also email us at support@teamwork.com.

Thanks

Hi Geoff

Yes! You can clock in and also log time and you’ll be able to see how they compare in the logged time bar chart in your profile.

Hope that helps but if you do have any more questions just email us at support@teamwork.com!

Hi Mateusz

Not at the moment, but since this feature is still in Beta, that’s definitely something we’d look at adding before doing a full release for it.

Thanks for your feedback!

Will this be added to the API? We have a security tags and they could easily trigger an API call to clock someone in or out. That would be awesome.

Absolutely Randy! In fact, the API calls are live right now and will be added to the documentation shortly. If you need any help just drop us a line via Support and we’ll get someone to help you 🙂

Hi Elaine

This is not something we have at the moment, but there has been a few requests for it so maybe something we will look to add down the line.

Thanks for the feedback!

+1 we would absolutely use this feature if we could prevent users from editing clocked times.
