While managing an organization, maintaining timely reports and keeping track of employees' work is crucial. The most frequently asked question regarding reports is how to maintain the time tracking reports in an organization. Business organizations need to keep records so that they can measure their growth as well as their employee's productivity. 

Most organizations do it manually and try to keep it updated and put the data in various formats in different reports. However, this process of manual time tracking leads to spending more time maintaining time-tracking reports.
