Would you like to to know who is working on what?


The TSV is your traffic whiteboard and a place where all traffic and project managers should live on a daily basis. 


Here you can view and manage your teams work in the form of tasks and can do so daily, weekly, bi-weekly and monthly simply by dragging and dropping tasks from day to day or employee to employee. 



**HANDY TIP: If you make use of the Magnetic leave module employee's leave will also show up on this view**


You can view your entire company or filter in a number of ways such as; individual, team or department. 



What setup is needed for the TSV to work effectively? 


The TSV gives you a detailed overview of all tasks employees are busy on, but in order to see exactly who is working on what, the following key things should be in place:


  • The tasks must have a start and end date. 

  • The tasks must be assigned to an owner.

  • Employees must belong to a department.

  • Leave days must be added on Magnetic.

  • Time estimate set on tasks.

How is the data captured to populate this report?


Simply by creating, tracking and closing tasks will give you the necessary data to make this a valuable and insightful report. 

The following users are involved in the data that populates this report:

  

  • Traffic / Project Managers - these are the people who assign tasks to users and jobs and ensure all the correct information is set on the task. 

  • Anyone responsible for doing work on tasks - these users must keep their tasks up to date to ensure tasks appear on the correct days. 


How to maintain this report


  • Host a weekly meeting with your traffic/ project manager and review the TSV to ensure all work is correctly allocated and on track.

  • Make sure tasks that are complete are marked as closed.

  • If tasks are overdue, ensure the TSV is kept up to date. 



Handy Tip:


Take note of leave and sick days and if an employee is sick on a day, make sure their critical work is allocated to someone with capacity.
