During Corona breakout more and more employees work from home. With the growing importance of home office, also the need for efficient and reliable time tracking grows. A common pratice found in many companies is to use an Excel worksheet to record work time. By the end of the week or the month, the time tracking worksheet is sent via e-mail to a supervisor who in turn needs to approve the tracked work time. The supervisor would then e-mail the worksheet to another staff member responsible for booking the tracked work time. This or very alike is how time tracking processes work in thousands of companies. Obviously, such processes cause a lot of e-mail traffic. This raises the need for more digital, effcient and less error-prone time recording and tracking processes.
