7pace Timetracker is fully integrated with your Team Foundation Server (TFS) account. Throughout each sub-tab of Timetracker or within your TFS account, any time you click on a work item, the work item details popup window displays. On this window, an additional tab is added when you have Timetracker - the "Time" tab. This tab shows the total time spent by you and your team members on that work item and all child items.
The "Time" tab also features an Add Time button that lets you add time directly to that work item. This "Add Time" button can also be found on the "Monthly" and "Times Explorer" pages and as "New Time" on the "Timesheet" page. When you click on "Add Time" within a work item and on the "Monthly" page or "New Time" on the "Timesheet" page, the resulting "Add/Edit Time Record" dialog box renders certain fields, like the "Person" (name) and "TFS ID" fields as read-only. These fields automatically populate with the signed-in user's name in the "Person" field and with the current TFS ID. These fields are only editable on the "Times Explorer" page, so a manager can add time for his/her team members. For more information, see "Monthly" Page: Adding, Editing or Deleting a Time Record.
If the "Activity Types" feature is enabled by an admin in your "Configuration" tab, the "Time" tab also displays any time tracked to work items that have been assigned an activity category in a special "Activities" section:
Here is a breakdown of the "Time" tab within a work item and its main features:
|Total||Total time (in hours) tracked for the work item, including time logged for all child items.|
|Add Time||When clicked, displays the "Add/Edit Time Record" dialog box so you can add time directly to the work item.|
|Work Item||In the lower left quadrant of the window, you will see the work item is highlighted with a blue bar and displays total time tracked for the parent and all child items. The first work item in the list shows a full blue bar. For other items, the blue bar is shown based on their tracked time, with reference to the first work item in the list.|
|Hours||The total time tracked for the specific work item.|
|Pace||The pace of the person working on the item is shown only for the PBI type work item.|
|Team||In the lower right quadrant of the work item window, the users who tracked time for the work item display. Each user is highlighted with a blue bar. The first user in the list shows a full blue bar. For other users, the blue bar is shown based on their tracked time, with reference to the first user in the list.|
