When you think of time, two significant notions come to mind: productivity and optimization.
In today’s IT business world, the only way to perceive efficiency and improvement is by calculating or benching marking against something measurable. And what is more measurable than time?
For that to be possible, the time has to be highly respected.
Contrary to our beliefs, time limits do not have to be limiting but rather stimulating and encouraging towards achievable goals, timely deliverables, target locking, and overall client satisfaction.
So how is that achievable? Simply by tracking time and, most importantly, by choosing a reliable time tracking solution. And there is no better time tracking tool on the market than JIRA.
JIRA now has new amazing additional time tracking features.
To name a few:
The time tracking feature: is an embedded feature; however, what’s unique and new about it, is that you have the option to enable or disable it on any project. So, if you choose to allow it, your team members will have the ability to track the time they spent working on open issues.
Time tracking reports: they now include a sub-task category. Meaning, you have two tracking options. Option one tracks the main task or issue, and option two allows you to track the sub-tasks under the primary, also called child tasks. Just like assigning tasks to members, you can assign sub-tasks to other members with permissions for time tracking enabling and time reporting.
A multi-project road map gives you visibility and access to upcoming project milestones.
In other words, now you can plan what you want to do and why you want to do it. In addition, the project road map allows you to see and manage multiple projects simultaneously, giving you the ability for better time tacking.
If you wonder when to apply such features and much more, how you can benefit from time tracking? Below are a few suggestions:
Time tracking will help determine when tasks are completed and provide timely deliverables to your customers.
It will give you insight into analyzing task progress and achieving maximum efficiency, allowing for better capacity planning and agile development.
It will assist in improving your management strategies based on the calculated and accurate data gathered from time reporting.
Give it a try!
