Learning about the full functionality — or even the most useful features — of new software can sometimes be a daunting task. We’ve put together a list of five Tempo Timesheets features to help new users learn about its functionality and hopefully help with the transition to making great use out of this new product. Check it out!

1.  Real-Time Time Tracking

Guesstimating time calculations for time spent on JIRA issues is a thing of the past. Inaccuracies can lead to billing errors and loss of revenue. With Tempo Timesheets’ real-time time tracker, users can keep track of their work in real-time as they go along throughout their day. Just start the tracker when you begin a task and stop it when you’ve finished or are ready to move onto something else (or, pause it if you need to take a break!). The tracker pre-populates your Log Work dialog in Tempo with the accurate time spent on the JIRA issue, and will display in your User Timesheet.

2.  Real-Time Status Updates

Want to know what’s going on when it’s happening? If enabled, Tempo Timesheets’ Activity Stream Provider adds Tempo Timesheets data to Atlassian’s Activity Stream gadget, enabling users to display a summary of recent Tempo Timesheets activity regarding time period status changes, grace periods, and timesheet and planning approvals directly in their JIRA dashboard. Stay informed and in-the-know about important changes and info from your team.

3.  Log Work in Tempo Timesheets Directly From GreenHopper

With its deep GreenHopper integration, Tempo Timesheets users can get a solid solution for their agile time tracking needs. GreenHopper enables users to follow their team’s progress, build a sprint backlog, and identify team commitment. With Tempo Timesheets’ new Worklogs tab, users can now view their worklogs, plan, and log work directly from the GreenHopper issue view without ever leaving their rapid board. Click the ‘View Report’ link for deeper analysis.

4. User and Project Reports

With Tempo Timesheets, users can get a comprehensive overview of their work by generating both User and Project reports. These reports provide detailed information such as estimated, remaining, planned, and logged work on Activities and issues that have been assigned to you. The Project Report offers users an effective way to view detailed information associated with particular Projects within a designated period. This data can be printed or exported to Excel.

5.  Visual Data

Tempo Timesheets offers a number of user gadgets to help you visually keep track of planned and worked time within a designated period. These gadgets display in your JIRA dashboard, and can be used with JIRA’s Wallboards add-on for high-contrast display, or embed in Confluence for robust reporting (if your JIRA and Confluence instances are linked together).

Tempo Timesheets’ User Timesheet Charts gadget  displays a user’s logged hours within the current period and is viewable by pie chart, bar chart, and area chart.
