Setting up Time Tracking

Starting to track time in your tasks could not be easier. In the project or task view, you will see a play symbol in the header with a timer beside it. When you click on the play button, the tracker will begin immediately and count by the minute. Click the timer, and you will be brought to the time tracking menu.
Here, you can add time to a task if you forgot to add it before, assign a category to a time entry, leave a note, and show records of past time entries. This is especially useful if you are working on a project with multiple assignees, as each of them can show their work and leave any important notes for the rest of the team about their work.

Timelog View

If you need to quickly see all of the tracked time in a project, folder, or space, then the Timelog view is the one for you.
Through the Timelog view, you can view a teammate's tracked time, edit and delete time entries and export a time report to Excel. Inputting the wrong time or tagging an entry with the wrong category can happen, especially in projects with lots of time tracking. The Timelog view ensures that these can be rectified, and that time tracking is easily shareable and visible for everyone.
Timelog Report
It's possible to report on how time has been tracked in your workspace through the Timelog Report.
In a timelog report, you can choose to filter the report by user, date, category and billing type. Similar to a project or task report, you can export these reports to Excel or create a Snapshot. You can also subscribe to a timelog report to receive an update in your Inbox on your chosen day and time. If you need to know how much time your team has spent on a daily or weekly basis, this report is perfect for you.
Once you have your team set up, you can quickly see how much time your projects and tasks are taking. Experiment with different categories and different methods to see which works best for you!

not able to tracker other assignees time. Wrike seems to be blocking to view their hours for each project which is incredibly inconvenient.
