i) Tracking your activities using tags is the core functionality of TmTask. Tags help you to be consistent in tracking with minimal or no errors, able to filter your entries easily and analyze activities effectively. TmTask allows you to add tags to your activity entries by using “+”, “#” and “@“. Note: Tags are case sensitive and doesn’t allow you to use space. Use hyphen (-) if you want to have a space in your tag or using more than one word. We recommend of not using more than 3 words in a single tag for simplicity and better usage.
ii) + : Use this tag to add project to your activity by entering “+” and then your project name. Always make sure to review already created project tags from the drop-down list to avoid duplicate entries. You can always edit your project name by clicking on the entered activity. You can also add more than one project to a single activity entry if you are working on the same activity and wants to count towards both the project. Although we recommend of using only one project per activity to count accurate hours towards your project. Click here to learn more about Add/Manage Projects.
iii) # : You will be using this tag frequently for adding any task you perform. For example: #meeting, #phone-call, #client-meeting, #coffee, #break or simply #feeling-good.
iv) @: We all like working in a team and so do you. If you want to tag any user (client or employee) then simply use this tag to your activity. You can also easily filter and see how many times or hours you worked independently or in a team. If user has access to TmTask then he/she can also review activities you have tagged for time tracking. For example: having #coffee with @kevin.
v) Tags can be optimally used in one single activity entry to specify any project (personal/professional), type of task and users engaged or involved in the activity. Why not use these tags to the max. For example: +project-awesome working on #brainstorming during #client-meeting and having #coffee with @john @jenny @jack. It’s that simple :).
