The cloud version of Bitrix24 is 100% free for an unlimited number of users and we do have an on-premise (self-hosted) version as well. It comes with open-source code, API and can be customized. The free version includes task management, project management, employee work tracker, employee task planner, Gantt charts, notifications, document management, client management, social collaboration tools, email server, and daily work report software for free.
Bitrix24 gives you plenty of opportunities in the task department. You can create:
You, as the task creator, will be notified once the task is completed and get a chance to accept or decline it. Tasks can also have observers (who do not participate in the task directly, just overseeing the activity) and participants (who assist the responsible person in completing the task).
Knowing how much time your employees spend on their tasks is crucial when it comes to assessing efficiency. With Bitrix24, you will know exactly how productive your employees are, which might help you to distribute the workload more evenly. If you happen to employ hourly workers, Bitrix24 staff task time tracking will come in handy. Once a task has been set, you will receive all the notifications you need to follow the task progress and evaluate the final result.
If you are looking for an employee daily work report software, Bitrix24 gives you that as well.
You can receive different kinds of work reports from your team members, all of which are customizable to your liking. Get daily, weekly, and monthly reports from your team members, accept or decline them, write your comments and notes, and evaluate employee performance by rating their work.
Managing your team with Bitrix24 is really easy since everyone can start, pause, or finish their working day using the Bitrix24 online time clock from any device - whether it’s a smartphone or laptop that runs Bitrix24. This might come in really handy for remote teams because in this situation you can’t physically control if everyone’s at their desks on time.
Bitrix24 also allows you to manage sick leaves, overtime, paid time off, and other types of absence using something we call the Absence Chart. This chart is designed to track employees who are currently out of office - on vacation, sick leave, business trip, PTO, or anything else.
