Time tracking is the fuel that powers project work
Project management and time tracking need each other. Even though tracking time can feel like an administrative task with no real value for anyone, it’s an indispensable part of project work.
Here’s why: Tracking project time records the effort exerted on individual tasks and projects, and feeds the scheduling engine. As you track time, your schedule becomes more accurate, which helps you plan, act and anticipate better. The data generated by tracking project time is your ticket to running reliable and updated reports, and powering data-driven business strategy.
Tracking time lets you showcase all the work you and your team are doing. This is no small point. Knowing exactly how much time work takes and how many hands it takes to get it done are two of the great unknowns in business. This knowledge will help you allocate and manage resources, justify hiring decisions, and most importantly, have a realistic idea of when projects will be completed. With this information, you can compete with the best.
Track time in the moment and in context
The trouble with tracking time is remembering to do it. It’s this extra action that gets pushed to the bottom of your priorities. LiquidPlanner makes it easy to log and report time because we integrated our time tracking feature across the app. For example, you can start timers from a specific work item, and then apply those hours directly to your time sheet; you’ll also receive a prompt to add time when you’ve clicked a task Done.
In short: We’ve decreased those time-tracking hurdles standing in your way. This frictionless way of logging time makes it second nature and easy to remember. And then you have data that better helps you understand how you spend your time, build a business case and get the resources you need.
Timesheets help you get more work done
The LiquidPlanner workspace has a tab called Timesheet. This is where you see a list of all your work sorted by weeks—from the most immediate tasks to last week’s and upcoming work. It’s as easy to add time to these tasks as it is to add tasks to your timesheet; it’s also easy for managers and team members to submit, approve and comment on timesheets.
Here’s the thing: Time tracking isn’t about the invisible eyeball looking over your shoulder. Time tracking is an invaluable tool that provides data, information and insight that helps teams perform at a higher level and deliver projects on time.

See what people are saying about LiquidPlanner
Since using LiquidPlanner, our directors and managers have more confidence that a project will be finished when we say it will. Going forward, I would expect that we could see a six month to one year improvement on our average project duration.

LiquidPlanner transformed the way the team performed and acted and changed what they did to meet the deadlines. You don’t argue with the estimates. You change your plan so that it will work. We actually ended up finishing the project a few days early.
