Dashable – Effortless Time Tracking

Dashable is a tool that teams can use to cut down on the time they spend manually logging billable hours on invoices and timesheets. The automated platform converts the work that teams are entering into their project management applications into timesheets, and shows its users exactly what has been accomplished each and every day.

Dashable is designed for professional teams that already use project management applications to track and manage their daily tasks. The platform integrates with popular services like Basecamp, Trello, PivotalTracker, and GitHub, and automatically uses the data that’s been logged in those apps (for example, moving a task to “In Progress” in Trello, or updating a design concept for a client in Basecamp) to populate accurate timesheets and client invoices. Dashable sends your team daily emails with recaps of everything that’s been accomplished in the past 24-hour period. Verify that the data in this email is complete. If it’s not, you can ask Dashable to send a reminder to any colleagues who forgot to submit their time and projects for the previous day.

When you’re ready, log into Dashable to view all your projects that need to be invoiced. Dashable will pull together accurate invoices based on the time spent working on individual client tasks. Clients can then pay these invoices online, with their credit card or via PayPal.

Practical Uses:

  • Improve the accuracy of client invoices
  • Automatically track what your team is working on
  • Create invoices from Basecamp or Trello
  • Justify the invoices that you send to clients
