Manager's Guide

As a manager in your organization, Tempo Timesheets is a tool for you! From managing your team's time to generating reports to get data, Timesheets has many features designed to help you do your job, no matter what type of manager you are.

  • Managing Your Teams - If you're a team lead, department manager, or a project manager, you can create Tempo teams that include your direct reports or people working on your project. Having employees organized in teams makes it easy to manage their timesheets and approvals, and to create reports on their logged time.

  • Timesheet Approvals - With your team set up, you can review and approve the timesheets that your team members submit to you.

  • Generating Reports - Running reports on the time that has been logged by your team or to your project is easy with Logged Time reports. These reports give you valuable data that you and your organization can use for many reasons. If you also have Tempo Planner installed, you can run the Planned vs Actuals report which provides you with plenty of insights into how close your planning efforts were to the actual time that was worked.

  • Organizing Data Using Tempo Accounts - Tracking logged time across multiple Jira projects - and even teams - is what makes Tempo Accounts a powerful tool for managing projects, especially for billable work and Capex/Opex (see the tutorials below).
