Creating a project is compulsory to start tracking time in Timeneye. Users with the permission role of Admin or Owner can create projects.
Group Managers can create projects, but only for the groups, they are part of.
How to create a new project:
There are two ways. The first one is from the Register Time dialog: click on the Project text field and select Create new project.
The second one is from the Project section, in the sidebar menu. On the Project list page, click on the green New Project button, in the top right corner.
1. Fill in the Project information:
Type the Project name in the text box and select a colour to better recognise the project in the Dashboard.
2. Add Team Members
Add the members of your team so that they can also track time for that project. Simply start typing the name of a team member and hit enter to add him/her.
If your projects are always available to all team members, simply select the option Make the project public for the workspace. In this way, all the team members (even the upcoming ones) will be able to track time for a particular project.
3. Add Phases
Phases are compulsory in order to track time on Timeneye. Set one or multiple Phases for the project by typing the phase’s name and hitting enter to confirm. After a while of using Timeneye, the system will start suggesting the most common phases you use as you type. And here we are: your phases will be set in a blink of an eye!
Set up clients, hourly budgets, billable hours
You can add a new client to a project by clicking on Client. Type in the client name and it will be automatically added to your project.
You can also make your project billable by activating the Is billed per hour box and then setting up an hourly rate. Hourly rates can be different for every user.
The budget is the number of hours you want to allocate to that project.
You can use the Copy function to create a project with the same phases and team members as another project you already have.
Creating multiple projects from a template
How many times have you created the same type of project over and over again? In Timeneye we aimed to speed up such a tedious procedure, so we have added the possibility to create multiple projects using your existing projects as templates. Admins will find this option in the Projects section of the account, by clicking the drop-down arrow next to New project:
Choose a name for the project, then simply select the existing project that you want to use as a template. The new project will be an exact duplicate of the template itself.
Importing Projects from CSV file
To speed up the process, you can also import your projects and phases from a CSV file.
