Why a Time Tracking Software Needs Time Request Feature

A Time Request Feature in time tracking software like Desklog serves several important purposes, which are crucial for ensuring accurate time recording, minimizing mistakes in recorded time, and enhancing overall productivity.

1. Accurate Time Recording

Employees may forget to log their work hours accurately, leading to discrepancies in time records. The Time Request Feature allows employees to request time entries or adjustments, reducing the likelihood of human error in recording work hours. As such, Desklog’s Time Request Feature ensures that employees can record their work hours as they happen.

2. Avoid Mistakes in Recorded Time

Employees may sometimes need to take breaks or handle non-work tasks during their working hours. The Time Request Feature in Desklog enables them to categorize these breaks accurately, ensuring that non-productive time is properly accounted for. This reduces the chances of inaccuracies in time records.

3. Add Away Time to Productive

By allowing employees to request away time, Desklog helps managers allocate resources more efficiently. For example, if an employee needs to attend a meeting or has a scheduled absence, this information can be factored into project planning and resource allocation to ensure that productive time is maximized.
