Want to track time period for Tasks

  Asked By: Aiesha    Date: Sep 15    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 3763

I am creating a task list and assigning tasks to my team members.

We have statuses for each task like “New,” “Assigned”, “In Progress”, “On
Hold” “Resolved”.

I want to track the time associated between every status of task (new to
assigned, assigned to in progress).

I want to know, do we have any out of the box way to track the timing for task
statuses change if not any other custom way to accomplish this.

You can use Workflows with SharePoint Designer. You can change  the status  of
any item list, modify the values, set the time, track  the times using Workflows.

First, thank you very much for your suggestion.

I am trying to implement workflows with Sharepoint designer for this. If it
works, I can write a custom  web-part where I can fetch all these
timestamps(column names) manipulated with workflows and and showing as a report.

can you suggest me is this approach is correct?

Yes, as far my knowledge goes, you can use workflows affectively to get your
work done.
From what i read about your requirement, workflows can be used to wait on a
given task time  and then based on your logic, you can either update the list
or send an e-mail to yourself or your team  members. This way you can keep track
of time for every task  that you have assigned  or created.
