Create timelog entry for other users

Hi,

 

It would be great if the create timelog API could record times for not only the API user but other users as well. Our consultants record their working times in some client's system and we do not want them to record it in Wrike too. Deleting and modifying others' timelogs is allowed. If it could work for the creation as well it would be a great advantage for us because it enables a usage of an interface.

 

BR,

Peter

I also need to log time on behalf of other users, as some of my team are using tools other than Wrike for logging time and I simply cannot ask them to do duplicate effort. I can only agree to Peter's original request. Please take this into consideration for future releases

The Scenario we would like to use this one is when multiple people are assigned the same task, for instance, a project standup meeting.  One person changes the Task to complete, but all users must log their own time on that task.  completing the task removes it from a dashboard or worklist, so there is no reminder to track time the easy way - users have to search for the completed task to add their time to it.  It would be great if upon completing the task, that user could "assign time to all assignees" or something of that nature.

As the person responsible for invoicing clients, sometimes I see that team members have forgotten to add their time to certain tasks. It would be great (and much more efficient) if I could simply add their time for them. Otherwise, I have email or message them with the request to add their time to the task which affects everyone's productivity.

I also agree that there are times when it is necessary for an Admin user to input time for another user. We have used other time tracking systems and this capability exists. We recently moved to Wrike for time tracking and the absence of this feature has been one of the complaints.

This would be a really useful feature for my team. We have one person who collates all of our teams hours and manually inputs them into TimeLog on Wrike against individual tasks / projects. However when reporting, they all show as that user. It would be useful to be able to say which user the hours were done by. (We currently use the comments box as a work around for this, but it's not ideal).

Thank you for reaching out Anna Tracy! So, from what I understand, your team members don't track/enter time entries, is that correct?

Hi Lisa, currently an excel spreadsheet is used to collate the hours worked by team members, then these hours are inputted into Wrike by one person.
