Nikabot Time Tracking

Nikabot Time Tracking

Nikabot is a time tracker for Slack and MS Teams that helps to monitor team progress on assigned projects by providing a visual overview, detailed project reports, tasks history, data import/export facility, and more. In response to Nikabot’s question ‘what did you work on today?’, users simply select and save details about each project they have worked on, as well as how much time they spent working on it. Nikabot facilitates users to enter this data automatically via chat, ensuring users never have to switch contexts.

The inspiration to name the tool came from Nika- Nikabot’s project manager who had to take responsibility for tracking the teams’ time on their projects because employees failed to track the time they spent on each project. Even team leads felt overwhelmed with the burdensome task to make sure that every employee filled in the spreadsheet created for time tracking. Nika took the incentive that if people are on Slack all the time, why not take advantage of that and create a Slackbot that could automatically handle extra chores like this.   Plus this way employees also get relieved from the daily struggle of remembering the correct way of logging hours, or the exact name of their projects. And this way, Nikabot came into existence to carry your cognitive load.

But we have a better alternative for you. Remoty takes care of the recurrent/repetitive tasks and saves you energy and time to invest in more yielding business endeavors. The cognitive load of handling lesser important tasks is taken up by Remoty.
