The time entries allow you to divide a task into several subtasks. There can be an unlimited amount of time entries under a task with various activity types, descriptions and assignees.
Time entries cannot exist without a task. Even so, you are able to see time entries in your task list, if you add time enries under a certain task and don't mark them as done. Read more about it here.
To create a time entry, open a task and click on the Add button in the time entries section.
Time entries can also be created in the task list. Just click on the stopwatch sign on the task line.
A time entry does not have a name – it is characterised by the activity type and the description. For a more detailed reporting, make sure you add both.
Select a duration for the time entry (how long it took or will take to finish this part of the task). Add a tick to the checkbox Done, if the time entry is actually done. If you're planning time entries for the future and they are yet to be finished, remove the tick.
In the task list the time entry is displayed with the description or activity type (if there is no description) under the related task (you can recognize it by the stopwatch icon).
Like tasks, time entries can also be delegated. Just click on the picture next to the description of the time entry and choose a team member to delegate the time entry to. In this case a notification is automatically sent to the assignee in Scoro.
The duration of the time entry is incorporated in the actual spent time of the task only when the time entry is marked as done. The actual billable hours (if the billable hours function is active) of the task are calculated the same way. The planned duration and billable hours are theoretical and only displayed under the particular time entry until it has been marked as done. Read more on work-time billing.
To quickly mark the time entries as done, use the task list or the Task. Just click the Mark as done button in either view.
Planned and completed time entries are automatically visible in the work report.
In the task list, as well as the task detailed view, the user is given a warning, when closing a task that contains time entries that have not been completed yet. Via this warning the user is able to either continue and close the time entries along with the task (mark all as done with the planned duration) or leave the task as it is.
Note! A user who does not have the the right to modify another user's tasks, can still add time entries to this user's tasks, as they might need to do a part of this task.
