Projects are the key stone of 88 Miles — it's what you punch-in to and punch-out of, so they are pretty important. Projects always belong to a company, can have tags, can be private or public and can have time limits.
Public projects are available to your manager (if you are a staff member) and all of the other staff members in your group.
Private projects can only be viewed by you. You can easily tell if a company is private in the project view by the small padlock icon ().
There will be up to three on-screen timers per project depending on what state the project is in. If the project has no time limit, there will be an elapsed timer and a stopwatch timer (if the project is punched in). The elapsed time is the total time you have spent on a project — it doesn't include totals from your work mates
If the project has a time limit, you will also see the time left timer which tells you how more time anyone in you team can spend on the project. If the project is overdue, the timer will go negative, the project will go red and you will see the overdue icon () next to the project name.Back to top
Tags allow you to classify projects which makes filtering on the project view page really simple. You can add multiple tags on a project by seperating by commas.
You can tag both projects and shifts. If you would like to know how to tag a shift, please go to the shifts help page.
You can add and remove tags from a project when creating and editing a project. Just enter the space-seperated tags in to the text field labelled
To filter projects based on a tag, just click the tag in the tag cloud in the right-hand menu.Back to top
Time limit examples
The time allocated field can take natural language strings. Here are some examples:
- This string is equivalent to 4 hours and 15 numbers. You can also add seconds at the end such as 04:15:30.
- 4 hours 15 minutes
- Acceptable modifiers are years, months, weeks, days, hours, minutes or seconds. Note though, that years, months, weeks and days are converted to hours, so 1 week is equivalent to 7 × 24 hours (168 hours).
