The mission of timeghost is to make it as easy as possible for you and your team to track your working hours. We want to give you clear and transparent evaluations of the times you track, which will sustainably improve your productivity in the team and make you more successful as a team.
The timeghost tags can help you and your project team with this. In addition to projects and tasks, they give you another classification option that promotes an overview in timeghost.
You classify your working times by assigning the individual entries to different tags. You can use them flexibly because you can create and customize them for almost everything.
Set tags in timeghost
To set tags in timeghost, you need the appropriate permissions. As an administrator, you are allowed to create and edit tags. To do this, simply follow these steps:
1. Go to the “Tags” tab in the sidebar.
2. In the tags click on “Create Tag” to the right of the search bar
3. Then define the name and type of the tag (Project tag/Time tag)
4. Click on “Create tag”
In the following GIF, we have shown you the procedure again.
The difference between Project tags and Time tags will help you to differentiate more precisely between these two topics.
Time tags give you additional information about the specific time entries within your project. You add these tags directly when entering your working times in the timer (as shown in the picture).
As the name suggests, Project tags are another way to display your projects in detail and give them additional information.
For example, you can add the contact person of the customer to the project as a tag, so that you are directly shown whom you should contact. Or you can add project-specific information to the tag.
Tags in the timeghost dashboard
You will notice the advantages of the tags, especially in the timeghost dashboard, where you can set certain filters on your tracked working hours. Here you can select in the filter bar, according to which criteria your working time should be filtered. Among other things, you have the possibility to filter your projects by tags.
If you have stored your previous time entries with tags, you can display exactly those time entries in the dashboard that were assigned to the filtered day. This is especially useful if you want to send a report of the project to your customers.
Tags in the calendar view
You can also use tags in the calendar view in timeghost Timer. If you store a time entry with a tag, the corresponding color of the tag is displayed in the calendar (see picture). The visual tagging gives you a quick overview of your projects and a more detailed view of your tasks.
