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.
You can see who’s overbooked based on a number of days you have set up in your User Settings.
How It Works (based on a regular 8-hour workday)
- Click on a task and add an estimate to it.
- Hours which are still available for booking will be shown in green (e.g. -5)
- If the user is overbooked, the number will be shown in red (e.g. +2)
Flexible Working Hours
This setting allows to select custom working hours to each user on your Workspace and therefore get a better overview of your team’s resources.
How to set it up
- Click on a User whose hours you want to change
- Select their working hours
- Click Done
NB: Employees can set this for themselves as well.

This nifty new Report should help you in having an overview of your Teams and Projects but using Estimates is crucial. Without them, Report would look empty and without any specific data which might help you in managing your Team better.
Once you’ve set your Daily Estimates, every Friday you should get an accurate overview of how your Team is doing and how far along has your Project come.
