"Camping Out" happens when employees feel more comfortable on their current tasks than upcoming ones. That can be a big problem. Projects don't move forward. Budgets get blown. And forget about schedules. Everything gets extended, all because tasks were not expeditiously completed and checked off.

So what can you do about it?

Use task warnings.

Set a percentage of completion for a warning. And then set another percentage where tasks cannot be extended. Empoyees will get a popup on the first percentage, urging them to complete the task. Then they'll get a second popup that prevents any more time from being entered.

That two-stage scheme keeps tasks moving forward, and prevents camping out.

 

 

Hey, guys, Mike with Standard Time®. Thanks for coming back.

I’ve got a project management feature I think you’re going to like. I know I love it!

Have you ever had an employee who likes to ‘camp out’ on certain projects? Maybe they like it or are comfortable with it? Whatever the case may be you may not have the budget for it. Maybe your client hasn’t given you enough time for it; you need to ship it out.

Well, I found a great solution in the Standard Time timesheet.
Within your timesheet you can set percentage levels for each task within the project. When employees go over that percentage, they get a popup that says finish up or you’ll get locked out.

That’s how Standard Time keeps projects on task.
