Tracking Tasks and Budgets

Access and Use the Task Editor


Use the Task Editor to add all of your tasks and subtasks. Then, see them all—and their related details, like assignment, hours, and due date—in one window. Think of your Task Editor as a one-stop-shop to add tasks and see project details at at-a-glance.

This article will highlight several Task Editor features, and it’ll explain how to access it in BigTime.


Take care of all of your task-related all at once. Add as many tasks as you need for a project, copy tasks from another project, and create recurring tasks. Then add details about each task, like the number of hours allocated and who’s assigned to it.

Turn on Auto-Save and have BigTime automatically save your changes.

Make the same change for multiple tasks once by using Bulk Action
