Tempo cloud updates: More power to project managers and team leads

The latest updates for Tempo Timesheets and Tempo Planner on Jira Cloud allow for easier, more precise timesheet management as well as more detailed capacity planning. Even better: these ideas often came directly from customer requests! Take a look.

Viewing Users with No Hours Logged - Tempo Timesheets

Inaccurate timekeeping data can create a whole host of accounting, invoicing and even strategic problems – but as we’re all well aware, it’s extremely easy for employees to neglect proper time-tracking. Maybe they’re still being onboarded and don’t know how to log time accurately, or maybe it just slipped their mind. 

Tempo’s new quick reporting feature helps ensure those slip-ups don’t happen.

By viewing 'Users with No Hours Logged,' team leads and managers have an easy way to see if anyone hasn’t logged time accurately so they can issue reminders (or extra training, if need be) and keep timekeeping data reliable.

Planner Skills - Tempo Planner

Each team member brings different skills to the table – maybe it’s multiple software languages, professional certifications or other training. Now, you can easily reference team members’ specific skills when it’s time to deploy them to various tasks. Need two Rust programmers with lots of availability in the next two weeks, for example? You can see who has that skill added to their user profile in Tempo, and quickly allocate them to the project you want.

With this new capability, users will be able to:

  • Build a database of skills, independent of user roles, and assign them directly to users and team members
  • Take stock of existing resources with the aim of matching talent to project needs
  • Identify any shortage of required skills for current and upcoming projects

Not only can team leads and resource managers quickly match the proper skills to project roles, but human resources departments can also use this to find the right candidates to fill gaps in their workforce.

Project Hours Approval - Cost Tracker for Tempo Timesheets

In complex organizations where resources often work across multiple projects, tracking the time spent on these projects can get tricky. 

With Cost Tracker’s latest feature - Project Hours Approval - project managers now have the ability to approve time spent on particular projects as it’s submitted. This new feature empowers project managers to seamlessly monitor project hours spent to ensure accuracy in billing, budgeting, and monitoring, providing better communication and driving overall efficiency.
