How to set up widgets in TimeLog


The widgets are designed to help organizations evolve and become more data-driven. They focus on enhancing the project controlling process and providing project managers with the tools they need to succeed.

By offering accurate and relevant widgets, they provide project managers with direct insight into the state of their projects. These widgets help answer questions such as: Are there any potential risks coming up that require immediate attention? Are there any tasks that are falling behind? 

Some of the insights that can be seen through these widgets include:


  • Average hourly rate: Monitor the average hourly rate for your projects.
  • Invoiced per month: Keep track of monthly invoicing for your projects.
  • Project task completion: Get an overview of task completion rates across your projects.
  • Absence plan: Stay informed about planned absences for your team members.


The widgets focus on areas where project performance is threatened and insights that could be hard to find. Their goal is to enrich the user experience by giving project managers the data they need and presenting it in widgets.
