Time tracking is a key way to know how much time you are spending on a Pod/Project.  With Brightpod Time Tracking, you can:

  • Record time manually by pod or for a specific task.
  • Track time with a timer for a specific task.
  • Budget time for each project.
  • Choose between billable and non-billable time.
  • Use Insights to know how much time was spent by team member, client, or pod within a certain date range.
  • Export all your time tracking information to a .CSV spreadsheet.

To see all of your tracked time for a project in one place, go to Pods, select a Pod, and click Time.


Here, you have the option to enter time manually or start a timer, see which tasks already have time associated to them, see if the time is billable or not, and export the time tracked.
