Time and productivity tracker / Time sheet
We have a team of translators in our office and we need to monitor their productivity so we can we check our costs and see when any of them can take on more work.
We need a tracking tool that will work on a network so that each client computer/translator can enter the work (amount of words) they are working on and have the program track time spent on each task.
I should be able to see progress and reports for all technical writers but they shouldn’t be able to see each other’s.
View 1 - Live projects / projects not yet started
View 2 - Completed projects with option to view productivity for day/week/month or selected period
Writers should have a Start / Pause / Completed button so the tool will record time spent on project. Tool should automatically go into Pause state if computer is idle for 10 minutes.
We calculate using amount of words. Each project has a set amount of words or hours. Words can be split into percentages. (Sorry for explaining it in a difficult way but if you open the attachment and press on one of the Weighted column cells you will see how we calculate.)
Our writers can produce 2500 Weighted words a day. Again see attachment. We should be able to see what they have booked in, when it is due to start and roughly when it is due to finish. Maybe this can be achieved with a timeline on a calendar ?????
Change Pause after Idle time
Change percentage for weighted words (See attachment)
Change expected daily output/weighted words
