Convincing Your Team to Track Time


Getting new habits to stick may be quite a task – especially if you need to convince someone else to do something. So how to get your team to track time? Here’s a few tips and tricks from us to help your team get toggling!



The key to all teamwork is communication, so be transparent and honest about the importance of time tracking and especially why time tracking is needed. Explain how the entire team can benefit from tracking their time.



We all have moments when we simply forget to start tracking – especially when time tracking is something new! Luckily there are tracking reminders in both Toggl Desktop and our Button extensions – Chrome and Firefox.




Toggl On All Platforms

Your team doesn’t have to be nailed to a browser tab to track time, Toggl is also available as a desktop application and on mobile.



A little competition never hurt anybody. To make time tracking a little less serious and add a pinch of fun, we added a bunch of badges that you could unlock before your other team members.



Team Dashboard

Although the Team Dashboard can be hidden from all regular users, keeping it accessible to everyone makes time tracking more transparent. On this page you’re able to see who is the employee of the week, your team’s recent most tracked tasks, etc.
