Timesheets is a new feature within Husky. You use it to register hours according to projects. It is the first feature that was developed especially for marketing agencies.
Reasons to keep track of your time - for marketing agencies
Reasons to keep track of your time - for marketing teams
For the Timesheets in Husky, as always, we go for simplicity and convenience. Moreover, it is fully integrated in the digital marketing planner. Plans, projects, tasks, budget, and timesheets: it all belongs together.
When ticking off a task, you can always add how long you've worked on it. In this way, while processing your tasks, you can fill in your timesheet, up-to-the-minute, or you can discuss with colleagues that you round time registrations to 5, 10 or 15 minutes.
You can disable this pop-up window in your personal preferences if you don't want to add time in this way.
If you receive a phone call or an email that comes between your planned work, it is possible to easily add a new time registration. You can attach it to a known task, but you don't have to. It doesn't matter in which plan or project you were working, the timesheet is overarching across all plans/clients.
TIP: the fastest way to register time. Click on the little + in the dark left column of Timesheets.
Or are you someone who fills in their timesheets once a day or week because you prefer to keep everything on paper first, then you will like our daily or weekly overview. In one glance you can see whether you have reported enough time on a day or a week.
It is also possible to add day notes in order to explain why you did not register 8 hours that day. A day of Christmas shopping, for example.
During your time registrations, you can not only determine your task type (administration, meeting, concept, corrections, ...), but also whether that time should be regarded as billable or not. Aftercare, for example, is logged, but not invoiced.
How much time did colleagues X and Y spend on customer Z last month, on which projects and on which tasks? How much turnover did we achieve last month based on our hours? Did everyone fill in their timesheets of last week? What is the ratio of billable to non-billable time in a year? What plans have we mainly been working on in the past quarter?
These are all questions that are answered in the Team Overview. You can either look at the graphical dashboard, or you can consult a list with all detailed time registrations.
Determine an hourly fare for each job type and you will not only see totals according to time worked, but also how much revenue it represents. The registered time is thus added as an invoice to each project budget.
Do you already use time blocks for the planning of your tasks? We use these time blocks as suggestions for your timesheets. All you have to do is confirm those suggestions and you're done with your timesheets. Again, that makes a difference to your administration, because there are more fun things to do than filling in your timesheets.
In Agency accounts, the Timesheets functionality is activated by default. If you want to use it as a marketing team, you can also request this upgrade.
