A few weeks ago, we announced a forthcoming feature: roles. Today, we’re beginning to roll out this new feature, so you should see it in your account within the next few days! That means you’ll be just a few clicks away from reports that can answer questions like:
- Do I need to hire another person to help my design team?
- Did my remote team track time this week?
- Which team is most billable, most overworked, or consistently under capacity?
What’s a Role?
Roles are descriptors for your teammates, which let you associate a person with their responsibility or position at your company. You can create any role to help identify your teammates—like Designer, Sales, Manager, NYC Office, etc. And you’ll be able to apply any role to anyone on your team.
The Power of Roles
Don’t let the simple setup of roles fool you. A role’s real power is in your Team report.
In the past, your Team Overview was just a list of everyone on your team. If you work with more than a handful of people, that list was unwieldy. What if you just wanted to report on a specific group?
