Overall Satisfaction with Daptiv

My communications department uses Daptiv to bill our work - we enter projects and tasks and the amount of time worked on each; this is how we show how we spent our days working as well as how we bill our customers.
  • Time management - it's a great tool for tracking time spent working on different projects.
  • Reports - I love being able to run a report at the end of the year to see how much time I spent on specific projects, how many projects I completed, and how many types of projects I worked on. This really helps me write my annual review.
  • Search function - Sometimes I have a hard time locating previous projects that are closed out that I need to go back into. This could be something that I need more training in to learn how to better name my projects.
  • Multiple people per task - When more than one person is assigned to a task, it would be nice to have a way to close the task for one person without the entire task closing.
  • Better customer service - In Daptiv I can easily track the amount of time I worked on a project, so I can then tell my client accurately how much time I spent.
  • Effectively managing budgets - When I know I need to stick to a certain budget on a project, I can carefully plan and be aware of my time and money spent in Daptiv.
I have not used a similar tool. My office had Daptiv when I began my job, and I was trained to use it. My office has recommended ways to use Daptiv (recommended project naming conventions, recommended reports to run, etc.), so I was trained on how to use it effectively in my office.
I primarily use Daptiv as a time management tool to track my daily work. For this, I think Daptiv works very well. I like being able to look back and be able to tell an author how much time I spent editing a report.

Using Daptiv

100 - My communications office uses Daptiv.
I do not have the power to renew Daptiv at my office, but I think we will continue using it because everyone already has it in use at my office, and we have made recent upgrades to it to make it more useful for our office as a whole.
