In general, Bitrix24 is a versatile platform with over 35 tools, including CRM, contact center, website and online store. But here let’s focus on collaboration and task management part. Bitrix24 enables its users to have unlimited tasks. Create a project, set dates in, create tasks with deadlines to get your job done in time. Teams can manage work or project groups and store all relevant information there. Also, they can grow knowledge bases, exchange messages in chats, have calls and video conferences. Communications are unlimited and can be a group or private. All channels of collaboration are safely encrypted and stored in TWO Amazon servers simultaneously. Or, if you want, there is not just a cloud version, but a self-hosted one (with open source code access) too.
Tasks for your workgroups or projects can include subtasks, checklists, dependencies, sequences and other. Tasks can be set to calendar events and events to tasks. Recurring tasks can be set easier with templates. All of your tasks can be seen in the Gantt chart for better deadline visualization or in Kanban style. There are several roles available, for example, responsible persons, supervisors and others. Tasks can be controlled and wait for supervisor’s approval.
Feature of time tracking with the exclusion of holidays and weekends will give you an option of billing per hour. This is an extremely useful option, when you deal with freelancers, for example, because in Bitrix24 you can actually add extranet users to tasks and chats. They will have limited access to tasks, document drive, calendars and group chats… Actually, access permission settings extend to all features of Bitrix24 – give your employees only that amount of work they need, leave ‘public’ spaces for everyone, and keep some parts hidden.
Time management and attendance software is flexible in Bitrix24 and merged with reporting and a number of HR tools. And it is so effective, that you can let your employees work remotely any time with no consequences – the job will be done, and you will be able to monitor it. You can set clocking in and out for employees and choose a workday and break duration. Time for start and day end is also available. What’s more important, Bitrix24 has many customizable HR forms and tools with a flexible and understandable display. For example, absence or vocation charts.
