Ready to discover how to structure your work in Scoro using events, tasks, and time entries? Watch the video for a high-level overview of each option, or explore the GIF guide below to move at your own pace.
Events are time-bound sessions that are scheduled to take place on a specific date and time for a set duration. Such activities as team and client meetings usually fall into the event category.
To view your availability, check Scoro's Calendar view. To book a team meeting, click on a free time slot and fill in the necessary details to book an event.
You can also schedule events only for yourself to work on things that need deep focus.
Unlike events, tasks aren't necessarily tied to a time slot in your calendar. Instead, these are assignments you need to deliver by a set deadline.
You can create a task in any view in Scoro by using the quick actions button. To set clear expectations on the delivery timeline (by which date the task has to be completed) and maximum effort (how much time could be spent on completing the task), set the expected due date and duration for each task you create.
There are two ways you can use time entries in Scoro—to log time against a task or to create subtasks.
To register how much time you worked on a specific task, open it, and add a time entry against it. If you return to the same task numerous times, log each activity as a separate time entry. This way, you can easily track how much time the task actually took to complete.
Alternatively, you can use time entries to break down larger tasks into smaller, more manageable subtasks. This allows you to schedule time entries for the future and reserve time for the work.
To sum up, you can plan your activities using events and tasks and use time entries to log time against tasks.
