Display of project progress on timesheet

  • Updated 3 days ago
  • Under Consideration
When we were using a custom "widget" timesheet, project progress (number hours used vs total estimated) was displayed on our timesheets.    That feature was lost when we switched to the "standard" timesheet format, although "view progress" is checked on the timesheet template.
It would be very useful to get this back.   Any ideas?

Hi Phil,

Thank you for using the Replicon Community!

Unfortunately, you can only track task progress on the timesheet when you are using the Standard timesheet. I will take this up as an Idea and forward it to my product management team

Thanks,
Aashnee

I have the same issue. We used to be able to see the project progress, and now, we have to drill down to a specific task in order to see progress. (we don't necessarily have multiple tasks under one project). It is really bad to take away features that we previously had. Plus, the project progress thingummy on the project summary page doesn't actually track anything, always shows zero progress, and has to be toggled manually. Seems like a useless feature.

Hello, has there been any update on this feature? It would be great to have the task progress bar added back as an option.

HI All,

Task progress bar on the custom timesheet is a feature that we have been working around. We will update the thread as soon as the feature is up and available.

Thanks,

HI Philipp,

View Progress bar is something that we have already worked through. We will update you as soon as we have it as a Widget

This can't be difficult.  This thread started 3 years ago.  My experience with Replicon is that you say you'll work on something and it never comes to be.  People are asking for this simple feature so please provide it.  This is something I would find very useful.

Hello Geoff,

Thank you for the response.

The project progress is available in the Widget timesheets and requests you to refer to the screenshot:


Please do let us know if you have any further questions.

In setting up a Widget timesheet I see an option for "View Task Progress" only.  I do not see an option to view project progress.

Hello Geoff,

Thank you for the response.

Please enable the same option to show the Project Estimated hours.

In my set up only the project has estimated hours and the time is entered against the project.

You may check the below article and refer to Using task progress graphs:

https://www.replicon.com/help/setting-and-tracking-project-estimates/



Hope this information helps.

Regards,

V.Vinodh

The article you've directed me to states:

Using task progress graphs

Within each duration-based timesheet template, you can enable progress bars that display beside each row in the timesheet. They show the total hours worked for all workers on a project or task as a fraction of the estimate entered for that task.

This graph displays when managers access the timesheet. Therefore, they could routinely check a project’s progress when approving time.



I simply want to do the same for Project Progress

I know how to get this information by running reports, but I want it to show for projects at the timesheet entry level, as it does for tasks. The ability to enter Project estimated hours is enabled.

Hello Geoff,

Thank you for the response.

The progress bar will work for the projects where the users are entering time against the projects and where the estimated hours are defined.

Please do try to set up a test project and then define estimated hours after enabling the "View task progress bar"  from the timesheet template and then when the users start entering time on the timesheet they will see the progress bar for the projects.

Feel free to let me know if you have any issues to set it up and we can get in touch with you as per your support entitlement.

Regards,

V.Vinodh

Dear Replicon Community

I'd like to bring this topic back alive. We are still struggling with the topic of task progress, task overbooking and with employees not able to submit their timesheets on time.
This feature is desperately needed!
How can it be that this is was lost during the update from standard to custom timesheets and that after two years it's still not possible to see task progress on the timesheet?
Come on Replicon Product Team this is an essential feature!!!

Regards,
Philipp

Hi Philipp,

Can you please provide a screenshot of your timesheet? We do support task progress on some formats of the custom timesheet now. So if I can take a look, we can confirm whether it's available on what you are using.

Thanks,
Charlene
