Tasks are the "activities" you or your team are working on. Tasks are generally more specific and are used to organize internally where and what you're spending your time on.
Example tasks are: drafting, sourcing products, site measure.

Services can be something you provide, such as design fees or a third party service such as delivery. Services can be billable or non billable. They are associated with a task. To learn more about adding, editing and managing your services click here.

Example services are: meetings, design development, admin work and product ordering.

Here are two examples showing how the two are related.

Task: drafting
Service: Design Development

Task: driving to client meeting
Service: client meeting

A time tracking report can be downloaded that shows a detailed breakdown of the tasks and the services (use the filters by date/ project/ space/ client first). The report is available in both PDF or CSV. We recommended attaching the report to the invoice for clients if they require a detailed breakdown of your hours.

For more information on using the time tracker, creating manual time entries and reporting click here!

Pro Tip: You can use the entry description to add detailed info about the task. To update a description you will select the three dots on the right of a time. Then you will select "edit."

Happy designing!
