Projects Overview

Projects are a great way to organize tasks. Creating projects lets you monitor how much time was spent by your team on a specific project so you can easily generate reports against them so you can stay on top of project budgets.

After creating an organization, the first thing you will need to do is create projects and assign them to your team members, or yourself. Your team won’t be able to track any time unless they are assigned to a project, so this step is very important.

Don’t worry, creating projects within Workstatus is simple. Click on a section below to learn more about what projects can do for you:
