Improvements on Time tracking column

Hi

Casting my vote for point #1 in the original post. Being able to quickly say: 30m or 1.5h or 2d would be very useful! tickspot works like that.

It could kind of be done with a number column, but I’m sure you’d lose out on important time tracking features.

Any progress on this one? We are very keen to be able to add hours without associated times. Our team currently has to make the hours up to get around the problems; not really a long term solution.

Happy to read i’m not the only one concerned by this issue.

I can see a benefit in having an option in the column setting to remove the play/pause button and just manually enter a duration in hh:mm (and, maybe optionally, :ss)

At the moment, we capture known time durations by using the Time Tracking column and entering the Start Time as 12:00 AM, and then entering a value in the End Time to reflect the total number of hours and minutes that we wish to record.

Some use cases include:

  • recording the total duration of time spent on a task;
  • setting the planned durations for individual tasks as part of an overall program plan;
  • recording the known duration of a series of video recordings

Using the Time Tracking column for these use cases allows the Column Summary to be optionally used for displaying the total time. We just don’t need to make the data entry for a simple hh:mm value to be so complicated or confusing for the users.

Hi all! We apologise for the delay in responding to this thread, and want to assure you all that each comment and piece of feedback has read and noted. Just to note, we are working on a process to improve our responsiveness to each request, so we appreciate your patience with us in advance as we work through a bit of a backlog.

That being said, we recognise that there is much room for improvement regarding the time-tracking functionality, and this is certainly something our product team is aware of. In full transparency, we cannot provide an ETA as to when you will see this feature revamped and improved, and as a result, we do encourage you to explore our apps marketplace, as there are a number of time-tracking apps that are out there to explore :pray:

Again, we really appreciate your understanding on this one!

Hi @BiancaT .

I see that you have beend responding on many threads, and i see more or less the same kind of answer (there is no ETA, apologises for the delay, etc).

But no in this one, with 3 years longing for an improvement, a column restyling, some inner native Monday.com solution for a basic column that basically is useless for team work because it not allows you to log hours for a team on the same column.

Question is: why not to be fully transparent about it? why not to say … “ok after 3 years we will tell users that we wont be working on this, and if you like something better please buy an app”.

I think all the members here deserve it.

Couldn’t have said that better myself @hlopezvc!
I’ve requested a response again from one of the monday team so will see what they come back with on that…
