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.
