Attendance scheduling
Set schedules for your team so they know exactly when they're supposed to work on GitHub projects. Once schedules are set, you can be notified by email if your team members are late or miss their shifts.

GitHub time tracking for remote teams

If you work with remote team members, tracking time on your GitHub issues is a must. When you’re working with team members halfway across the world, getting updates about work being done can get a little messy. On top of that, there are sometimes concerns if team members are working honestly. Now, you can work with your remote team at complete ease, thanks to Hubstaff’s automatic GitHub issues timesheets and proof of work.

Your remote team dashboard

Tired of chasing down your employees as they work on different tasks at different times throughout the day? Keeping track of all of them is no easy job. Hubstaff lets you see your whole team in one place so you can get the information you need at a glance.

Know when and what your employees are working on

With Hubstaff’s team dashboard and screenshot features, you can know what an employee worked on in the last 24 hours or previous weeks (up to 60 days). Want to get an update on what your remote developer in India worked on? Just go inside Hubstaff and look at his screenshots.

remote team on autopilot

Put your remote team's payroll on autopilot

Payroll is a time-consuming task, especially with growing remote teams. Hubstaff's simple automated payroll allows you to set up payments one time so you can focus on more important matters. Your remote employees' pay is calculated to the second using Hubstaff’s time tracker and the individual pay rate you set. Then it's automatically sent to Payoneer or Bitwage.

Make each remote team member self-disciplined

A great worker isn’t necessarily a great remote worker. Working remotely requires you to be incredibly disciplined, especially when your TV show’s latest episode is just one click away. With Hubstaff’s randomized screenshots, activity tracking, and idle time tracker, you can ensure you always get disciplined work from home. Hubstaff even tells team members how much time they’re wasting on unproductive sites and apps while working.

GitHub Time tracking for freelancers and agencies

automatic timesheets for work

Create automatic timesheets for work done

No need to keep a manual (and often overestimated) count of hours worked on your client’s projects. Just start tracking time directly to your GitHub issues and Hubstaff will automatically create weekly timesheets for you. When your client automatically receives timesheets before they wake up every morning, you know they’ll be impressed by your level of professionalism.

Managing online invoices has never been this easy

Create online invoices, send to clients based on time tracked in their GitHub project, record payments and automate your invoicing process. You'll be able to keep track of which invoices haven't been paid yet so nothing can ever slip through the cracks. Stop adding up hours and start billing hours using the invoicing tools from Hubstaff.

set project budgets

Maximize profits by setting project budgets

Effective cost management begins with setting smart budgets during the planning phase of your projects in GitHub. Hubstaff's project budgets allow you to set limits based on time or cost and we’ll notify you when a project budget is nearing its limit, so you can make necessary adjustments.

Close more deals by offering proof of work

Working with remote clients poses many challenges, including communicating about progress of projects. With Hubstaff’s proof of work features like random screenshots, activity levels, and app/URL tracking, clients can know the progress of the project any time they want. Thousands of agencies across the world are winning their clients' trust using these features. Hubstaff even offers unlimited viewers for your projects.
