I've inherited the responsibility of managing a team in my role. I need to track the hours that each employee spends on each project. We're a small startup that lacks an existing process for this task. I know there are a number of tools for this, but I'd appreciate a guide/recommendation if you have one.

  • Hi Simon, welcome to PM.SE. As your question stands, it's off-topic for this site as software recommendation questions tend to become obsolete pretty quickly. As a suggestion, would be interesting to delve into the reasons why time tracking is required in your company. It might be for billing purposes, which goes into the realm of "product / company / vendor management" and thus beyond the domain of project management per se. – Tiago Cardoso Nov 30 '20 at 9:56
  • You might want to try on softwarerecs.stackexchange.com even though a shared Google spreadsheet can do the trick just fine. But as Tiago mentioned, it would be more interesting to know the reasons of why you want to do this. – Bogdan Nov 30 '20 at 10:04
