Sub Item Time Tracking Widget


I’m building out a dashboard that includes a Time Tracking Widget.
I hope to be able to see a collective overview of all the time tracked in a given period.

Our studio relies on sub tasks in order to deliver projects which time is recorded against. I group that info into a Mirrored Data column in the parent task to give a task specific overview.

The problem is that I really need a widget that totals the time recorded by users in both Parent and Sub Item.

Am I missing something?

Had a similar use case. Think I hacked something that works for me.

Does this solution work for you? Curious.

Seems like the link doesnt work. Could you share the solution?

I too would love to be able to report on sub item time tracking. Frustrating that we have to record all time on the parent item. I know subitem time floats up but we have a lot of parent items so need to run a company wide report.

The time tracking function really is becoming an issue for us. It’s just not good enough really.
Sub tasks feed into parent tasks
Multiple users need to track time against sub or parent tasks
Each time entry needs a note function.
We need to be able to see how much time was used on a particular subtask/task/project per client


This is a really important feature. As described it is urgently necessary to get times of sub task into dashboards which shows total times by users.


I agree. We need to be able to have the ability to have standard reporting and dashboard functionality. How are we able to leverage this position with monday?


Having a way to measure resource time tracking against each sub-item is also very important for us. In addition, I cannot find a way currently to find any live running time trackers - so this is vastly more difficult to keep accurate for my team. In Items you can use the filters to find any that are running, and update.
@CSG when will this be available for subitems - both the time tracking widget dashboard and the filters for subitems for time tracking?


I’d love to see Sub-Item Time Tracking be supported in the Time Tracking Dashboard widget! I am feeling limited with the way I can design a board based on the Time Tracking Dashboard Widget’s limitation of only seeing Time Tracking entries at the Parent Item level. For my workflow, this limitation reduces the functionality of sub-items to being just a checklist.

An alternative is to treat groups the same as my current information at the parent item level, but that quickly becomes cumbersome and bloated with groups and isn’t feasible.

Please implement sub-item time tracking support in the dashboard widget for time tracking! It would make significantly more useful to my projects and team! :slight_smile:


Hello community, I noticed that “sub-items” management strategy should be revisited carefully. We tried here to put in place a standard to work with sub-items under parent tasks to accomplish the people timesheet monthly report from multiple boards, multiple projects. However we are suffering to consolidate whole timesheet information and remove the “old” excel spreadsheets for our project management.

Hello, any updates on this topic?


I have the same problem, any update about the feature?


I had just opened a thread regarding this exact issue (Sub items time tracking report)

I have up voted this request and I think it’s paramount this is dealt with from the engineers. We use sub tasks to group our work and each sub task has a time tracking column. In order for us to report specifically on each employee and how much time they have used per sub task, the time tracking widget simply does not entertain the idea of sub tasks and while it is our understanding they are currently in the process of gradually rolling out sub filters to the widgets, I think it’s important to prioritise which widgets are widely used by the community and I would believe the time tracking column would be one of them.

I echo the sentiments in this thread and I would love for one of the community staff to give us an idea if this has been looked at yet or have any indication when it will be looked at/delivered/up for beta testing?


Our company also needs to include subtask’s time into the Time Tracking Widget :frowning: This is a deal breaker for us!


We need this functionality as well (added my vote at the top)

This issue has been open since Nov '21 but there has been no response from team. It would be nice if we could get some kind of acknowledgement that at least they’ve read this thread and understand the concerns raised.

I am a part of a small creative agency and we use Monday as our main task management software. We have been using it recently to understand the time we spend on each project/client. Sometimes sub-tasks are added as we go through a task and if time-tracking is done on the subtask, the total time tracked is just a cumulative of subtasks but stops taking into account the time tracked in main task. It would be great is the ‘Total time tracked’ is an overall addition of all tasks, sub and main included.

Would love to know what the Monday team thinks and if there is a particular reason to have this feature this way. Is there a way to modify the time tracking system as per our team’s working style? Thanks :slight_smile:

@mondayteam Yes PLEASE!
Subtasks allows me to organize my tasks properly but I can’t get the times from sub items to add to the total time. This causes discrepancies in time and pay.

We were struggling with a similar thing and found something that may work…

I can’t tell if my image is attached, but add a number’s column to the subitem, then set it to “show summary on Parent Item”. Then, in add a parent item column (ex: Total Planned Effort) with a formula that uses the main item number unless there’s a subitem number IF({Subitems Planned Effort}>1,{Subitems Planned Effort}, {Planned Effort})

In your workload widget settings just point it to the Total Planned Effort column. This way we get all the hours and no duplication.

The only issue is that if you assign multiple people to a task, you have to choose to split the time equally or add them.

Is there a way to ADD the two numbers?

For example, I am working on a Marketing project. I have completed 5 hours on the main task. Then I find something else needing to be done which I add as a subitem and track the time under that subitem. However, I do not want to lose the existing 5 hours.

I am not very familiar with these types of formulas.

Your help is greatly appreciated!
