Daily Time Estimates

In this article: overbooking, flexible working hours, weekly digest

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.

Below you’ll find a few of examples how Daily Estimates can help you out.

Capacity Planning

You can see who’s overbooked based on the number of days you have set up in your User Settings.

Overbooking

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 you to select custom working hours for each user on your Workspace, giving you 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

Note: Employees can set this up for themselves as well.

Weekly Digest Email

This nifty new Report will give you an overview of your Teams and Projects but will only work if you enter Daily Estimates. Without them, your Report will look empty and won’t provide you with any specific data to help manage your Team better.

Once you’ve set your Daily Estimates, an accurate overview of how your Team is doing will be sent each Friday to show you how far along has your Project come.
