Track time spent on your tasks in Wrike

Published by Valerie  |  Sunday, 03 February, 2008
The time-tracking feature is now released in Wrike, the project management software. We have received many inquiries from our users about ability to track time in Wrike, so we decided to implement this feature.

Professional services providers, companies that work with freelancers, implement hourly pay, or have many projects and employees — all of you will find great value in the time tracking feature.

Besides time tracking, Wrike offers a powerful platform for collaboration, task organization, task management, reports across diverse projects, Gantt charts, e-mail integration and smart notifications — all in one user workspace.

Time-tracking is an essential part of increasing the productivity of your team. Time-tracking helps you keep track of the hours spent on a task or a project and evaluate the effectiveness of your employees.

Your team members now can add time entries to tasks easily. They just open the task to edit, choose the date and enter number of hours spent on the task.


Then you can create time reports for projects and track the workload of your team members. You can export reports to CSV file format, print and provide them to clients.

    Great! This is a good reason to manage my projects with Wrike. I'm just test driving your product. Where can I find time reports in my workspace?

    Peter, thank you for your feedback. Please unfold "Reports" in the left hand panel and click on "Time Log." Then you can apply filter to your reports: by the person, by dates and by folder (project).

    Are there any plans for a javascript-based "time ticker", that can be used to track time automatically. Scenario: I log on to the site - open up the "add time entries" form, and a click on a "start timer" button. I then do my work and, when I stop or pause, click on the "end timer". (I would be able to do this multiple times, to handle the case of being interrupted etc.). When done, I click on "Add" as usual, and all the times are totalled up and posted.

    If we see more requests for this feature, we will implement it.

    Those time tickers are more of a pain.. the minute you turn your head to answer a phone or clean up the coffee you spilled the data goes out the door. :)

    Sure, they will never give an "exact" account of your time... but with a bit of discipline are better than "guess work", especially when you are multi-tasking throughout the day.

    Time recording is fine.But, how can I correct a wrong entry? If it is an addition, it works with "add", but no provision when we need to deduct!

    Click on the "See the time log for this task" link. You can see its location on the first screenshot on this page.

    When you are in the time log, click on the cell that you want to correct, enter the new number of hours and hit "Enter" on your keyboard.

    I too would like a time ticker and a desktop-based widget. Would rather not have to use another app to get get that data.

    Agree with Simon, a time tracker would be great and negate the need for another application.

    I am also very interested in having an automatic time tracker that I can use inside the same application.

    I want to be able to record the planned effort on a task as well as the duration. Along with this I would want to be able to show personnel who are over allocated across a number of tasks. Even better would be a facility to warn me when I am about to save a task that would over allocate someone. Is there any intention to delvier this sort of functionality?

    Hi John,
    Yes, there is. Intraday planning was a first required step to more robust resource management.
