Approval workflow is very important for us to make sure we have full control of our employee’s effort and activities.
We are a movie production house company. Currently our company divided projects in Clockify into 2 types of projects, and required our employees to register their effort hours either in
- Operation (project)
- or Movie Production (projec)
is basically used for different departments such as HR, Marketing, Sales etc…
When an employee is working, he or she is either working with regular operational tasks that belong to his or her department, or project tasks that belong to a movie production project. Operation project effort hours can be weekly department tactical meetings, social event, client support etc… Those effort hours will be approved by the Department Manager/Line Manager only, not Project Manager
MOVIE PRODUCTION project
is mainly a dedicated project with estimated hours, timeline and budget. Whatever effort hours an employee had been working for a movie production project, he or she must register their time in this project type/category. Only the project manager can approve (not the Department Manager/Line Manager) all the registered hours registered by his project team members for example by end of the month.
Once the hours are approved, regular employees cannot change or edit their approved hours anymore.
Only this basic approval process explained above can help our company to monitor and control all activities and effort hours more correctly. The project manager can report to the Project Steering Committee what is the actual hours have been consumed for their project. The Line Manager can report to the Top Managment team about their current resources is under-work or overwork etc…
Please consider this feature as HIGH IMPORTANT so we can monitor and control our team better.
