A few years ago you couldn’t imagine the amount of work that could be done remotely. Somewhat we owe that to the fact that technological advances made being a “digital nomad” more possible than ever, but we can also say that there’s a gradual shift in the way people think, with the comfort of where you work playing an important role just as the how productive you are. That’s why successful companies like Google and Facebook all have open office designs because they aim at cherishing this, more free approach.
That’s why Punchti.ME allows you to track your time easily while you’re working wherever you please!
Trello + Punchtime = Epic
Punchti.me is an app that helps you manage time by cooperating with your Trello account. In case you never heard of Trello, it’s one of the premier task management systems in the world today. It can be used to plan out a redesign of your house as well as your website, by arranging the tasks that need to be done into lists that are then arranged into boards. It’s a pretty simple, yet efficient way to cooperate on projects, sort out your ideas and get more stuff done. Its simplicity might fool you, but worry not, Trello is really packed with utility and useful features.
So, once you got to know Trello, it’s time for you to get to know Punchti.me. The problem that this app is trying to solve is simply making people track their time. That sounds as straightforward as things go, but you need to know a few things to start out with. First, it’s really hard to track how much time you’re working on a project while you’re working remotely, and secondly, that’s a dire need for developers for example because they get paid by the hour. You’ve probably found yourself in a situation where you’re writing some assignment at home and simply get sidetracked by other things and then return to your project a few minutes later. This isn’t bad by any means, but it makes tracking time harder.
Track Your Time And Use It Better
Punchti.me lets you see the time logged into the Trello website, and the total time logged on each individual card. You can also start a timer right there in Trello. This feature starts a stopwatch that shows how much time has elapsed since you’ve started work on that card that you’re working on, for example, the “write a text about Punchtime” card. This can be incredibly useful for teams that are working remotely, or simply teams of freelancers working on a bigger project from the comfort of their homes or other places they find soothing enough for them to work at.
Punchti.me lets you describe what you did, for how long, and with whom. This last part is something really interesting because it lets you incorporate an entire team on a project, and lets you see who is doing what and for how long they’ve been doing it. This lets team leaders have an insight into what their workers are spending time on, and it lets them “nudge” them in the right direction if they need it. It’s all about productivity, and making more things happen with more ease, right?
We All Love Us Some Analytics
Punchti.me allows you to get some very good analysis and metrics for your Trello-provided time. It lets you visualize your logs using a feature called Insights, which lets you organize your time into nice looking graphs and charts so you can see just how much time someone is spending and where, because let’s face it: everything is better with pastel-coloured charts that look both soothing and informative. We truly need more of apps that look like this one in this business, you’ll agree.
With Punchti.me you get powerful integration with your favourite project management tool, great insights, a nice-looking art style and tons of features for making your management of your personal time and the time of your teammates easier than ever. And what’s best, the free version of Punchti.me has a lot of features for small teams so you’ll never pay anything to use it. So ditch that stopwatch and start using Punchtime, your projects will thank you!
