Ability to track time on a project itself

Currently in Wrike users can use the time tracking and reporting on tasks but not on projects. Having the ability to track time on the project itself would help us simplify reports to accounting who in our case don't care about the task-level and just care about the project-level in terms of time spent and spend. This is something we can workaround currently, but it would be a big improvement for us.

I second this! We use a different time tracking tool currently because wrike does not allow you to look at the hours at a project view. 

Would love this to change!

I too vote for a way of tracking hours at the project level.

I vote for this as well. Not everything is task based for us. Adding time to the entire project makes more sense.

@Casey How are you working around having this feature? Just making a catch-all task within each project assigned to everyone?

Hmm, at the outset (I voted for the ability to track time on a project itself) the feature suggestion sounds good. Tracking time under any specific Task (X:x) within the Project (X) would then  pause Project (X) time tracking.

As a workaround we plan to have  a Task for Miscellaneous Project work (X:Miscellaneous) to capture all the small and fuzzy stuff not worth turning into Tasks.🙂

We also greatly need the ability to track time at a project or folder level. Today there are so many strategic conversations, emails and meetings which occur at a brand, rep or customer level - it is very tedious to have to create and manage generic tasks under these folders and projects simply to track time. Please consider adding this ability!

Lastly, at the end of the day, when somebody realizes they forgot to track their time, it's very time consuming to navigate back through all of the various folders and tasks which they worked on. Is there a way to quickly track time AND tag with specific tags without actually digging through all of the various folders and tasks they worked on?

It would be awesome if we could track at a project/folder level with our team. We have many tasks that live within our projects that we track on, but there are so many generic things we do that aren't necessarily associated with a task but are very important to capture within our workloads and where our team is spending time.

Our team would also like to track time on the project level.  We do not always need to track time based on the specific task and adding a task to record time seems redundant.

Hi everyone, thanks for your support for this suggestion! 🙂

Our Product team has plans for this for 2020, so it'll be extremely helpful if you could share more use-cases on why you need this as a feature. That will help our team prioritize and plan!

Hello, I need to be able to get the hours spent by team on main tasks behind a project and also at the project level. This information is required for project monitoring and review.

In order to track time as completely as possible, we need to account for the various work the team does outside of the actual tasks. We have tasks which include design, placing an order, etc., but there are also many strategic conversations, emails and meetings which occur at a brand, rep, customer or project level (which today are our projects and folders) - it is very tedious to have to create and manage generic tasks under these folders and projects simply to track time. With about 40 team members having to do this consistently, we cannot expect them to create a task for every item they work on, we need one simple place, which already exists in the foundation of our Wrike workflows, for them to track all time.

I think this should be a thing!

Wrike has a whole section about holding meetings within wrike. But were does the people put the ours on? Of course not on the project, because that is not possible at the moment!

Please make this possible!

Lisa Any words on progress? 

Our use case revolves around having the ability to compare spend time on customers.

Our structure is:
One customer = One Project. 
One project includes several tasks, where time is tracked. 

So for us, it would be really nice to get a top view of all the aggregated time tracked pr. project.

Lisa our need for this has increased since I commented on this in 2019.  Since 2019 we have expanded our Wrike license to our Client Engagement Team.  Like Mikkel Siggaard, our client engagement team uses One Customer = One Project.  

Please let us know if this is on the roadmap.

Thanks,

Tim

I second Tim Cheney's last comment. This ability would be crucial for our department on how we manage/track time on projects. It would be very helpful to know if Wrike has a timeline for this. Thank you!

This would be really helpful, our team finds it a little overwhelming to track in each task associated with a project. Some of them have started creating a time tracking task as a work around but being able to record at the project level would be much more useful. Thanks!
