When people guess, most of the time, they will put more time on the sheet, to show that they were busy, and not wasting time. Some rare people might put less time, to show the company that they are efficient. This guessing of time taken on tasks and project gives an inaccurate description of the amount of time put. It can lead to company’s making decision’s regarding projects based on that information, all being essentially bloated or leaving a project behind deadlines. Thus it is integral to track the time accurately. Online timesheet software is one way to do this. They are useful for many reasons.
