Adding and assigning projects in Workstatus

Projects are used to organize the work your team will track their time against. Under each project, to-dos or tasks are assigned to specific members. You can also link clients to projects so you can bill the time logged to a specific project for that client.

For example, your company might be tracking time for the marketing department. In this scenario, the project would be Marketing, and the To-dos associated could be Facebook ads, Scheduling Instagram posts, etc.

If you are a web-focused agency you may have several clients with website properties to track time for. In this scenario, you could break down your projects like this. www.site1.com, www.site2.com, www.site3.com. The To-dos would then be more focused on completing specific tasks associated with that website, e.g. Redesign the front page, fix CSS in section A, etc.
