    Hi Carl, thank you for sharing! I'd love to learn a bit about where the need for this is coming from. Do you think this would be helpful for the purpose of ensuring that the task status is changed on time?

    Hi Anastasia,

    It would be useful for a number of reasons.

    Firstly it ensure the team updates the status when they start working on a task (only way to log time to it).

    Secondly, it can be used to ensure team members are only allocating time to specific tasks.

    Thanks, Carl

    Carl, thank you for taking the time to clarify that! Do you often encounter these situations when users start tracking time too early or too late (when the task isn't in the required status)?

    Anastasia - more likely the other way around. Someone just adding time without updating the status of the task.

    Hopefully in the future there will be more 'workflow status' related smarts to make it easier to automatically drive events off the workflow statuses.

    I would love the option to prevent users to record time once a task is marked as completed.

    We invoice and measure the success of a task at the time it is marked as completed, and any additional time accidentally recorded after completion affects our invoicing the our measurements of success.

    I want to know how long my team members spend on tasks, however they also change only the task status and often forget to start tracking time.

    This idea help us to solve the above problem and to manage tasks more efficiently.
