Want to verify hours worked on hourly projects? Starting July 8, use Guru’s new Time Tracking tool to help you stay on top of billable hours. Time Tracking helps Freelancers automatically record time spent on projects and tasks as well as helps Employers visually confirm work activities and progress. The tool captures screenshots randomly within ten minute intervals so all work progress is visually confirmed, preventing any payment questions.
How does Time Tracking work?
- Freelancers download Time Tracking to their computer.
- As the Freelancer works on a project, the Time Tracking software records work activities. If needed, Freelancers can make edits to the recording by changing task descriptions and deleting non-essential activities. They can also manually add activities that don’t require the computer, including: research, reading, conference calls and discussions.
- All work activities recorded are automatically added to the Work Room’s Time tab.
- Once time is recorded in the Time tab, Employers can review the Time Tracking calendar for hours and work activities logged for the day, week or month.
Is Time Tracking a requirement?
No, Time Tracking is completely optional. However, if you do not have an established working relationship, Time Tracking can bolster your communication and trust for time-based projects. Additionally, the combination of Time Tracking and SafePay provides air-tight payment protection.
