Re: Time tracking

Hi 

Unfortunatley time tracking is not available at this moment in Servicecamp. We are also eager to have this functionality in Serviecamp  and plan to have it implemented at some point.

Taking the opportunity could you please describe on how you think this feature should look like in order to met your needs and  what is use case for which you need time tracking.

Re: Time tracking

Time tracking is needed to bill the expenses. In most ticket systems you can add minutes and hours to each answer or directly to the ticket. It would also be nice to use an API to get all closed tickets and the time summary and put it to our invoice system.

Re: Time tracking

Hi Yervand,

Firstly, thanks for providing feedback.. many developers just don't. Great App so far!!

We are currently using Zendesk, which has a Timecamp Chrome Plugin which allows us to track the time spent on a ticket

We also use Basecamp which has a Chrome plugin integration to Everhour where we track the time spent on Projects. It is a tedious procedure as we do most of our support on TeamViewer.

It would be awesome if we could get it all in one app (Servicecamp). I would love to replace Zendesk and track time with Servicecamp and an API / Plugin (preferably Everhour ) which allows us to track time on the specific tickets.

Re: Time tracking

HI,

Yes time tracking would be excellent, this would be needed however for user level also as you may have more than one agent working on a single ticket.

For instance I work in a software company so you could have a ticket which may start as a support ticket but may then go to 1st/2nd/3rd line for investigation then this may need to be moved to either a consultant or developer. In this isntance a better process would be needed than a single ticket but time tracking for all involved would be beneficial.

Also time tracking is all well and good but having a mechanism to view or extract these is going to be just as critical. So maybe there should be some soft of static KPIs in the settings based on queue level which could highlight.

Re: Time tracking

Time tracking and generating time reports is absolutely essentials for my work, too.
A ticket system without such funktionality makes no sense to me.

Re: Time tracking

I was using Spiceworks which allows time to be added to tickets for billing puposes. Need this functionality big time.

Re: Time tracking

That would be a needed feature but in the meantime I created a custom field that I manually specify the total time spent on the ticket. That does the job somehow but I need to bill these tickets and I have no way of doing that easily.

So I created another field to keep inside there that exacly info: Billed: Yes / No / N/A. But now I have no way to filter the tickets based on my custom field. We need to be able to filter the tickets based on the CUSTOM FIELDS!!! 

 

 

My problem is

Re: Time tracking

I think that you should allow to connect session report with tickets, that would be beautiful! It mean that from tickets we can connect to any of client company computers, and that sessions, time that we spend, and session description goes all on some ticket report. Now I can only connect to client computer, but sometime I need access to clients server to be able to resolve ticket, so I need that option too.
