Claritask product overview
Claritask helps organizations manage their teams and projects. Through a simple interface, employees are able to manage their day to day deliverables while managers have a bird’s eye view on what everyone is working at all times. Time tracking and chat also help team members log time, ask for details, and stay informed about any given task or project without having to call for a meeting. It also provides team leaders with project history and employee involvement in tasks, which are helpful for team reviews and client reports. Furthermore, companies can create separate workspaces within the same account. Separate workspaces can be assigned to various teams or a specific department, a large project. Companies can even create a private workspace for top management only.
Pros of Claritask
Employees in Claritask manage their day-to-day via the “My Tasks” section, which lists their tasks in chronological order. This gives each employee a single space to focus on without being overwhelmed with the overall scope of the project. Management, on the other hand, is given tools to quickly create new tasks, re-arrange scope, and keep everyone informed. Teams can be notified of updates and progress via Claritask’s notification system for any changes in their tasks or roadmap.
Cons of Claritask
Claritask is currently working to develop scheduling in workspaces with the goal of helping companies linearly schedule teams and projects ahead of time in order to better manage their resources. That is a work in progress, however. Claritask’s communications options are also task-related and make company-wide alerts difficult.
Breakdown of core features
Workspaces are almost like separate accounts within a single login. Individual workspaces can be siloed from each other so only relevant teams or team members can view it. Workspaces can act as a department, a special team, a large project, or even a private workspace on which the owner and superadmins have access to. Superadmins have access to all current and new workspaces, whereas admins and staff have access to specific Workspaces only. Workspaces act as containers for projects.
A single task can act as a simple deliverable or a smaller project with internal functionalities such as checklists and subtasks. Tasks also have places to upload files, comments, tags, dates, and can add multiple users. Edit versions of tasks allow users to make changes to tasks and subtasks if needed. Task history also allows all team members to see everyone’s activity within the task.
Time Tracking & Timesheets
Time can be tracked on the task level with a real-time tracker that can be paused or submitted at any time. Each task can have an estimated time allocation which can be compared against the actual time submitted by anyone working on that particular task. Timesheet reports give feedback by filtering time entries based on projects, tasks, billable status, date range, and more. These reports are useful for companies who bill clients on an hourly basis, as well as for those companies that want to run a more intelligent operation by knowing where how their team’s time is being spent.
