I've recently migrated to 7pace because of the direct integration with DevOps and, therefore, the ability to log time against tasks. This allows us to keep all our work in one place - which is great.
However, I did migrate from Toggl and their app is a long way ahead in terms of usability.
My role involves jumping between tasks and starting/stopping different tasks and it's just not easy (or realistic) to start and stop the timer at the correct time, or constantly visit the web page to make adjustments to time. As a result, my time tracking isn't particularly accurate and I can't realistically expect my teams time to be accurate either!
The newest Toggl app (Which had further improvements) has a great UI that let's you manipulate the time very easily in many combinations, e.g.
- Set the start time to X minutes ago (For when I forgot to start a timer or someone came to ask me for help with something)
- Set the finish time to X minutes ago (For when I moved onto another task)
- Add in a new task, with the start and end times, then create my next task. (For when I did a small job with no tracking)
- Be able to view most recent tasks saved, so that I can edit them within the app.
So, it's difficult to put this into a single request, but if you try their app you'll instantly see how much easier it is to use and how that ease of use makes time tracking more accurate.
Are there plans to make the app more "intelligent" or are there some restrictions because it's working with DevOps?
