Looking for a time manager - resource allocation tool for team tasks

Looking for a time manager - resource allocation tool for team tasks

(OP)
So, I'm not sure how to bet title our need. I own a small engineering firm where I need to allocate time to various team mebmers for various projects. I currently use todoist for task mamangement. It's an ok task solution, but lacks many needed tools for a manager. Then, I need a way to allocate time for each project and/or task on a calendar, showing the duration for a project and/or task, with the ability to move multiple projects and/or tasks together based on delays or interruption. I was directed to hourstack for easy todoist integration; the idea is good, but not at all a productive solution.

Curious if any of you have suggestions. Looking for a solution for a small firm with 3-5 persons.

Thanks,

There is (was) a product from Serena called Team Track. They've changed the name, but you can probably search Serena Team Track and find it. If Team Track is too expensive, you can try searching for similar products.

Thanks, John. Did you use it?

RE: Looking for a time manager - resource allocation tool for team tasks

Yes. It allows assignment of recurring (business as usual) and project-type tasks, and you can even let the employee enter their own task if you want. It then tracks hours against those tasks and has rollup capabilities, reporting, etc.

Just to conclude the thread. Team Track was renamed as SBM, Serena Business Manager. Then Serena was bought by Microfocus, and the product is now called: Micro Focus SBM.
