Zoho Projects is cloud based project management software. It should be noted that it is not a specialised time tracking app, but is designed to track time in the context of project management. With the app you will be able to plan project activities, assign tasks to team members and communicate with them and customers and manage resources. You will always have detailed reports as to how a task is progressing with updates so that projects are delivered on time.  Our last two articles have discussed the benefits of time tracking software and time management software considerations. This time, Relativity, the business technology experts from East Sussex looks at Zoho Projects in more detail in regard to time management.

Time management features:

  • Timers
  • Timesheet
  • Invoicing
  • Budgeting
  • Calendar

Global Timer

Zoho Projects has a built-in timer, which can be started and stopped with each task. If it is left running accidentally, it lets you know the next time you go to that task and caps the number of hours you can do so you can’t exceed the number set by the account administrator. You can also clock in on multiple tasks at once.


Timesheet management has never been easier and this logs the time spent by each team member on a task. This is particularly helpful when invoicing customers and identifying bottlenecks. By spotting them quickly, they can be resolved. 


Invoice time logs and record expenses by integrating with Zoho Books or Invoice. This simplifies the generation of quotes, which can then be forwarded to clients.


Cost management can be improved which will automatically reduce quote errors. Control your finances by creating, tracking, and forecasting budgets, billing clients, tracking expenses, and analysing reports.


You will soon realise the benefits of having your project activities all in one place. Meetings and events can be easily scheduled. Just click on any particular day of a project to create new tasks, milestones, events or bugs, and assign them to the right people.

Why use Zoho Projects to track time?

  • Improve productivity – determine which tasks take more time
  • Boost profitability – see how long non-invoiced tasks take such as sending emails
  • More transparency – let clients know how a project is progressing
  • Manage teams worldwide – determine who is on track with planned hours and who has too much to do

What do the experts say?

“Highly rated by some of the most trusted critics around, Zoho Projects is highly capable project management software with plenty of tools for team communication, project timekeeping, and bug tracking. The platform is particularly attractive for small teams and start-ups, since it offers a free plan for up to five users and very inexpensive paid plans. However, large teams utilise and love Zoho Projects as well. Some of these are Stanford University, Dell, Airbus, and many more.” 


“Zoho Projects is a well-balanced project management app that is especially appealing to small and growing businesses. It offers all the core tools needed for managing projects, such as Gantt charts, basic resource management tools, and timesheets, for a price that’s more than fair. Getting started with the app is fairly easy, although it takes a little time to learn its finer points. Overall, Zoho Projects is an excellent project management tool and continues to be an Editors’ Choice winner. We recommend it for small teams on a budget, in particular.”
