Time tracking in Tempo just got even easier with Tempo for Slack. We know that time tracking is the most powerful when it is as accurate as possible. We also know that recording time shortly after work is complete is not only more accurate, but easier to do.
With this in mind, it seemed only natural to bring your time tracking workflow to the place where many of you communicate and discuss tasks with your teams.
Say hello to Tempo for Slack
With Tempo for Slack, you can now log work on JIRA issues without navigating to Tempo Cloud at all. Simply start interacting directly with the Tempo bot to get your work logged quickly and efficiently.
To log work from our Slack app, all you have to do is start a conversation with Tempo. You can do this either by clicking “Log work” from a list of options, or simply typing “log work” into the message box.
View timesheet status and submit it in seconds
Another great time-saving feature that the Tempo for Slack app offers, is to be able to view your timesheet status right there in your window.
Simply click the “Get timesheet” button seen above to get a short overview of the work you’ve logged and see what’s left to complete for the current period.
In addition, if your timesheet is ready to submit, you can submit it to your supervisor in a matter of seconds.
You’re also just a click away from the “My work” page in Tempo Cloud, simply click the blue text to open your timesheet.
