Report Your Time

Track and report your billable and non-billable time

Tracking and reporting time in Forecast is easy. You can manually enter the number of hours to register, or use the built-in Timer to count and track time automatically.

There are three types of time you can register in Forecast:

  • Card time
  • Project time
  • Non-project time

Card time is the most granular level, and is usually the best option for everyday tracking of tasks.

Project time is when you want to take a step back and just report time on the project level. There can be various reasons why you would want to do that, but you probably have a policy in your business on how to do this best.

When tracking time on a card, the time registration is naturally also a part of the project it belongs to, but if you track time on just a project, the time will not be attached to a card.

Non-project time is everything that is not directly linked to a project or client, but still needs to be tracked in the system. Examples are, meetings, vacation, sickness, holiday, training, parental leave, etc.

Below, we'll go through how you can track all of it.
