Understanding your metrics

On the timesheet page, you can see key indicators of your weekly performance, as shown in the screenshot below. If you do not see these key indicators or metrics, you should click the “Show Metrics” link on the left (beside the date display).

Let’s explain what each metric mean.

WORKLOAD – Seegad tries to give an indication of your workload based on the number of uncompleted tasks you have for the week. Specifically the number of hours budgeted for each of the tasks you are supposed to work on this week.
So if you have 10 tasks this week, with each task having the default 2 hrs budgeted time (you can set hour budget for a task by editing the task), then it means you already have 20hrs blocked, which is 50% of your available work hours in week and “Moderate”. People who have more than 35 hours blocked will see their workload as “Unrealistic”, which means they are unlikely to complete all tasks.

TASKS –  This is the number of tasks you have worked on this week.

HOURS –  This is the total hours you have spent on work this week. Basically, total hours you have logged.

PEOPLE – This is the number of people whose metrics is being calculated. By default, it shows your metric which means just one person. You could also select another user to view that user’s metrics (if you have such access), OR you could select your entire team to view the overall metrics for your team. In the later case, you will see the number of people in your team here.

PERFORMANCE & UTILIZATION – They both mean the same, one is a word while the other is a number. So let’s explain Utilization. Utilization is how well you have utilized your work hours. Say you worked 30 hours this week, then your utilization is 30 / 40 = 0.75 or 75% (40 is the total number of work hours in a week. i.e. 9am -5pm, Monday to Friday). A Utilization of 75% gives you an “Impressive” Performance.

TOTAL EXPENSES –  This is how much you have incurred working those hours, along with any other cash expenses you submitted. Put another way, this is the cost [to the firm] of all the work you’ve done this week.

BILLABLE EXPENSES – This is how much, in total, you should have billed your clients for the work done this week. If you are an Admin staff, then this figure will usually be zero, and that’s fine, since you do not work for clients. The figure in brackets, 34.0% in the screenshot above is your BILLABLE UTILIZATION. Billable Utilization is similar to “Utilization”, except instead of total hours worked, we use total hours spent on client work. Basically, it describes what percentage of your work time is spent doing work for clients.
