Estimating Tasks and Projects can’t be an easy task to do, it can be challenging at times and most often, we fail to do correct estimates. Teamweek won’t suddenly make you an expert into Estimating your Projects but it can help you create a habit of doing so.
Daily estimates are important to train your brain to try and predict how many hours will it take you (or your Team) to complete a certain Task.
Here are a few of examples how Daily Estimates can help you out when using Teamweek.
Daily Estimates can help you see which ones of your Employees are overbooked and which ones have more time than the others. To do so, you can use Flexible Working Hours.
- Click on a User from the Users list
- Under the Working hours, select the number of hours which your employee is working
NB: Employees can set this for themselves as well.
Once Employee’s hours have been set, you can input Daily Estimates on the Task and once you’ve saved the Settings, you should see the number of hours that employee has for that given day on the Timeline.
