Better Time Tracking Comes To Sketchnote

June 17, 2022

A couple of weeks ago, we slipped in a small promise that eagle-eyed Sketchnote power users caught. And now we can let the cat out of the bag, for real!

We're taking on the challenge of creating a really robust time tracking system for Sketchnote Boards! We introduced the estimated time section recently, where you could manually add the number of hours you expect the task to take. Let's one up this!

Introducing, more detailed time tracking

You can now start keeping a tab of time spent on a task in multiple ways:

  1. You can simply start and stop the timer when you're working on an issue.

  2. You can still manually add the number of hours it takes for you to work on the open task.

  3. You can select a range of hours—say 1 pm to 2 pm—and add that to the task.

The best part is that you can also mark hours spent on a task as billable so that you can create invoices easily later on.

A brand new tab called Timelog will allow you to not just see the time you've spent on an issue, but also if a colleague has and how many hours. You can also quickly see if the hours are billable or not. Currently, you will only be able to view this tab but we're rolling out the ability to open it up as a view and edit details on it too!

A better view for Kanban tasks

We get it, sometimes it can get extremely overwhelming to look at a task in the Kanban view. You have the cover, name of the task, priority, labels, task ID, due date… phew!

We're rolling out a brand new look to Kanban tasks that will only show you the most vital information—task name, priority and label—at a glance. Once you move your cursor over it and hover, the tab will expand to show you more relevant details.
