Over Tempo Timesheets
Flexibele urenregistratiesoftware voor Jira. Ontworpen om de tijd bij te houden, betrouwbare gegevens te produceren voor rapportage, facturering en boekhouding en meer.
Is a fantastic way to get things organized. Even log our work, control teams, reporting, budgeting.
Not sure whether this is a jira problem or a tempo problem but it is not an easy workflow. Recording time is often a cumbersome task.

JIRA Cloud TEMPO user
Tempo Timesheets helps you planning and auditing your project duration
Opmerkingen: I've been using Tempo for over 4 years o maybe more. I actually used since I purchased the JIRA Cloud subscription because it is a nice add on.
Mainly I used integrated with JIRA to measure how much time does it take for the developers to complete the user stories. I also use Timesheet to get the monthly report and from there I manage the billing hours for the developers of our company.
When you download the report in CSV format, there are some fields that are quite confusing. For example, the logged duration of a task is presented as decimal value insted of using a time format.
Tempo Timesheets Rocks!
Opmerkingen: We switched to Jira/Tempo several years ago (from FogBugz) because we needed a development tracking tool with a good time tracking system. We picked Jira Software Cloud first and then selected Tempo Timesheets for time tracking. No regrets with Tempo. Jira has been (and still is) an adventure at times, but Tempo Timesheets has been a solid performer from the start. And it has received significant improvements over time. It's a great choice for my company.
Easy to use. Integrates well with Jira Software Cloud. Reasonably priced.
Not big , but due to Jira changes, it now takes an extra click to get to Tempo time entry in a Jira ticket.

Redenen om voor Tempo Timesheets te kiezen: We dropped FogBugz because they didn't track time in a way that worked for us.
Updates without considering the users needs
Opmerkingen: Honestly, at this point I work with it because I have no other choice. But I am strongly pushing for us to get a different solution. I was fine until the timesheets were taken away and was hoping for improvements through added features
When I started to work at Kreios 3 years ago, we were already working with Jira/using Tempo Timesheets. We are constantly optimizing our processes and for HR as well as for invoicing I was able to implement standard processes
The recent update I like least because you just simply removed the "timesheets" feature and replaced it with "my work" which isn't anything but the reports filtered down to a person. So it wasn't a feature added but a major feature taken away. We had to instruct people on what they had to do different, we had to adapt our own accounting software that imports timesheets automattically, time tracking during weeks or months has become harder. I was honestly very upset about that. Another thing I don't like is that export feature isn't flexible enough. Also lines are cut off when there at the end of a page, no matter how you try to do it, if the export is too long. So they're not reliable (Monthly export for payroll)
It allows us to have the time of our tickets in progress, by actions and final. The management of our daily is more consistent and therefore efficient. It allows to have our stats (Daily, weekly, monthly,...)
It sometimes crashes, but this is very rare.
Best timesheets tracker ever
Opmerkingen: We could not find any systems that are easy to use and could support billable and non-billable type of time entries. Tempo delivered big time and the ease of which you can add time entries, swap them out with other tickets or edit other user's timesheets and update them is simply AMAZING.
- VERY easy way to add time to your Jira service desk tickets - Very easily set up via the admin panel - Integrates with groups and roles - BEST time plugin I have ever used (across multiple systems) - Price point is GREAT (We use a hosted server setup) - Editing staff timesheets is a breeze...I have never used a system that os so easy to use.
- The budget period is only per month. There is no option to set other time periods, ie qaurterly, yearly etc. (this is a very big one) - Have to set up organizations again. It should integrate with the "Customer" list in jira service desk. (Very minor) - Does not have an option for rounding time to the nearest quarter of an hour (very minor) - Does not provide budget alerts (this is a very big one) - The settings screen can use some love and explanation

Redenen om voor Tempo Timesheets te kiezen: Connectwise Manage is a tool that has a LOT of features. However, it is very ppor in terms of UI, functionality and ease of use. The reporting features of Connectwise are VERY poor. CSV exports leave a lot to figure out in terms of which columns host which data. It is a VERY bad tool.
Overgestapt van: ConnectWise PSA
Redenen om over te stappen op Tempo Timesheets: Did a brief research on Atlassian communities throughout the web, and considered Harvest. However, the ease of integration with Jira service desk was the main selling point.
Opmerkingen: Our Professional Services thrives on this. When you are looking for the over/under on your portfolio of projects, and need the insights as to when you are approaching capacity, Tempo Timesheets becomes critical for our organization.
Ease of use and reporting functionality are key drivers for project accounting. Tempo Timesheets is easy enough to use for the daily user, but still sophisticated enough to use for executive views.
Nothing that hasn't been addressed in recent releases.

Redenen om voor Tempo Timesheets te kiezen: Ease of use and ease of integration.
Overgestapt van: actiTIME
Redenen om over te stappen op Tempo Timesheets: We integrated it with Jira, while using Tempo Timesheets instead of Jira's classic time logging functions. We simply needed more sophistication so that we could effectively handle project accounting, which is vital for any professional services organization across any industry.
Does most things well
Integration with Jira. Integration with tickets in Jira. Different views (calendar, task, etc.). Relatively easy to log tasks.
Can only log hours for the last three weeks. I will sometimes log my work one month at a time, so I need to be able to go back 4 weeks when adding items. This setting cannot be changed and it has been the most frustrating aspect of this tool.

Redenen om over te stappen op Tempo Timesheets: Direct integration with Jira. My team can log time directly against the tasks that they're working on.
Good Option for Existing Atlassian Users
Opmerkingen: While Tempo does provide distinct reporting benefits and ease of use to existing Atlassian (JIRA) customers, improvements could certainly be made to its permissions schemes and pricing model. If you are familiar with JIRA and have the knowledge and patience to properly configure the application, Tempo can be a very useful tool for data reporting and invoicing. If you are looking for a simpler, cheaper means to track time, however, I would recommend exploring alternative options.
Tempo Timesheets is an effective way to log and manage time entries for existing Atlassian users. The application integrates seamlessly with the JIRA project management platform, allowing users to log time through individual tasks and tickets, which then passes through to Tempo's custom reporting and approval dashboard. The inherent time entry approval process built into Tempo ensures data integrity, as only admin-level users are allowed to approve, reject, and edit submitted entries. The reporting functionality allows users to create custom time reports based on user, project, account, and several other category designations, which is great for organizing and assessing your time data.
Like most Atlassian products, the permissions scheme in Tempo is both complex and delicate. Familiarity with JIRA user AND project permissions is essential to proper use of the application, as misconfiguration can lead to corrupt or inaccurate data reporting. Tempo also lacks direct integration with popular accounting and CRM software such as QuickBooks, which makes service invoicing a more manual process. There is also no current means to distinguish JIRA users who need access to Tempo from JIRA users who do not, which means you will be charged a monthly service fee for each JIRA user, regardless or whether or not they actively use the application. This results in a higher monthly service fees, which can make Tempo less affordable to some users.
Opmerkingen: I am mainly using Tempo Timesheet to track my time for the day and log time spent on specific tasksit a nice since i can edit it and log it in real time and view the data in real time
Can be edittedcan see stats in real timevery easy to use
i do not dislik anything about tempo timesheet
Best financial & time planner add-on for Atlassian
Easy and seamless integration with Atlassian tools stack. Require very minimal training for a nrw user.
More automation to.upload the legacy data for emplyee will help to onboard the project faster.
Opmerkingen: We are an IT Services company & Tempo Timesheets is the backbone of our time recording & Client Billing - the team finds it easy to use
Easy to Use - requires minimal training Allows recording of Worked & Billed hours
Searching for Issues could be better Handling of Billed hours could be better Rates just aren’t useable in our use case
My Tempo Life!
Opmerkingen: This allows us to manage the time of our employees and consultants worldwide and is important to be able to use this data to see where we need help and where we have too much help... I am overall a happy 7 year customer! However we expect Tempo to keep being at the forefront of this technology.
The software is good and simple and very effective, though the server version is different from the cloud version. Simple for end users to understand Good reporting Most times very fast Cost efficient Good customer service Great technical support Data is encrypted
Not allowing users to submit time cards after three weeks It allowing time Magner’s to be able to approve or reject time cards when viewing a time card after three weeks server version allows this At Times it’s slow and the page shows tempos homepage yet it’s hosted in the cloud we refresh and it works At times it takes a while to resolve issues but you always do resolve them
I like Tempo!
We use Tempo to collect the worklogs of our dev team which are then used to bill our clients.
Also, we use Tempo reports to compare the initial estimation of a ticket to the time that is actually logged.
I love that timelogs get connected to particular jira issues which is very useful when analyzing them and comparing the logs to the initial estimation. This is something that cannot be done with Toggl and it's the biggest reason we don't use Toggl.
The old Reports page from Jira server was quicker to use. There were fewer steps that you need to do to see the timesheets and you can very quickly switch between different projects or from a project report to user report. Saying that the newer timesheets page in Jira Cloud is much more powerful.

Tempo Timesheets for Jira Server
Opmerkingen: Very positive! Everyone enjoys it and I don't receive any negative feedbacks about it.
The interface is very user friendly, it allows all team members to quickly fill out their timesheets. That was our #1 requirement when we switched to Tempo Timesheets. Our previous solution made this tedious and team members would be reluctant to properly enter their time. In addition, the options at our disposal (different teams, reports, admin) allows us management to easily bubble up all required info.
Even though we consider it is worth it, it is the most expensive timesheet plugin in the Atlassian Marketplace. Also, there is a bug that annoys me personally: when logging work and navigating quickly through the fields (jumping to the "time" part with TAB), any value entered too quickly would be wiped by a refresh that happens in the background. I'm to blame as well for that because I did not report it yet. :)
Defacto standard for timesheets
Opmerkingen: I needed to track different methods of time tracking. Hourly billable work, project hours, and blocks of hours. When evaluating other products, the fullness of the integration and simplicity of implementing new features and reporting was important. The interface front and back is polished. In my opinion, Tempo is and should be the defacto time tracking tool. If you're doing any sort of billable work with Atlassian, it almost doesn't make sense to not have Tempo.
Out of the box it is simple to use. Simple to start, but has a lot of powerful features that can be added as my organization's needs have grown.
If there were a simple way to link Jira Service Desk Organizations 1-to-1 with a Tempo Account, it would be even better.
Opmerkingen: Since we have tempo, we have more accurate booking, and E can quickly correct bookings with customers of necessary. With accounts, we simplify the booking to billing.
Tempo had a number of views to allow you to enter time easily. It integrates nicely with Jira. It does not try to be original, but it is useful. The integration with Google calendar is top. Reports and accounts help us to get an accounting overview.
The dictionary to search tickets to book on is not good. The base search in Korea is much better. Also, tempo always required filters to select, while not using the existing projects as a filter... Yes I can make a filter for that, but I have other things to do .. :-)
Opmerkingen: Continue improving the product. We're using it and I'd like to push it out to others in our company.
I've used up to a dozen time tracking products, and the easy of use on this is the best. It creates less pain for a painful process of time tracking.
Some parts behave as unexpected. Removing people from teams/jira messed up their reports. Deleting Jira issues also deletes the time (This one is key - it'd be awesome if I don't have to worry about this)
Great Detail adn customization
Opmerkingen: Tempo Timesheets are used to do all of our time tracking against JIRA issues. This allows us to report our hours monthly for customer invoices, and allows us to track the accuracy of our estimates vs the actual work. The reporting and filtering capabilities are excellent, and the ability to pull up reports on a yearly basis, then download that data is indispensable for us.
Very easy to setup and use, then customize for our needs
Very few cons and they are all nit-picks like I wish they would change the format of the data download file names for easier sorting - things of that nature. From a functionality, capabilities, etc I have no real issues with the software.
Does the job well
The ease of reporting between projects and users as well as being able to view planned time
The limitations on using custom fields for reporting
Tempo Timesheet - great to have!
Opmerkingen: Benefits are now that we can keep our time spend on specific projects which helps to estimate if we overspend or underspent on a project. It is great that it interacts with Tempo Planner so that we can now also compared the planned hours to the worked hours. It helps is to keep track of time that needs to be worked on a project.
That it interacts with Jira, that it is easy to use and that it provides all sorts of reports (user, project issue etc.).
The calendar view is extremely confusing and I also don't think that the way it interacts with Tempo Planner works very well. So all of us keep ignoring the calendar view.
Great but expensive
Tempo in my company is a step before put the time in the financial tool.
Projects managers checked if time spent in Tempo and in the financial tool are the same.
Without Tempo, checked only in Jira would be too tedious.
Ergonomics / Nice Goods features : move time / my work /teams. Overall timesheet is convenient ! Good reports to verify quickly
Expensive for a tools which is use to see "only" time spent. - Can't be use for project management to consolidate Estimate/Remaining and spent. We use EazyBI for that. - Can't verify if a user has 8h each day (for example) if this user work on a project you don't have rights. Perhaps have a line with no details but indicate thats the user spent time on an other project - Can't use "Submit period" feature when a user works on multiple projetcs with mutiple projects managers. A manager should validate only time spent on his project.
Tempo Timesheets at our company
Opmerkingen: We are using Tempo in our projects for our customer. It's very important to have a detailed time logging possibility. Tempo integrates well into JIRA Cloud but some of the features (e.g. tracking in the browser and not in the mobile app) are not intuitive enough.
- Good integration into JIRA Cloud. - Existing mobile
- Reporting feature is not perfect enough. - Usage as a user is not intuitive enough (for the first time)
Well made and useful timekeeping software
For the most part Tempo is trouble-free. It allows users to log their time against JIRA issues and managers to build reports based on that data. It's largely intuituve and has few "gotchas". Users don't need to bother administrators much. We've had very few problems. Support is good.
I feel they've tried to make it too sophisticated in places when most people want only very basic functionality.
Tempo as time sheet for SW developers
Opmerkingen: Easy time reports for users, easy build-in reports for managers.
We use Tempo as a timesheet for our SW developers. About 250 developers use it to report time tracking. The most I like with Tempo is the easy option to get reports, from user reports to team reports.
Upgrade to the Tempo App may not go smooth and lose some features. Need more backward compatibility when upgrading to a new version.
Very flexible, easy to use product
Opmerkingen: Incredibly good, I've been through other timesheeting software and I like the flexibility to create my tasks
Interface is easy, you can get used to the tool quite quickly. Setup is not complicated Inputting time is easy
App can be a bit slow to load sometimes.
