How Can Employees Create Their Own Tasks?

By default, Time Doctor only allows owner, admins and (if permission is given) managers to add/edit projects and tasks. There are two options to allow regular users to create their tasks:

Option 1: Give Regular Users permission to create tasks from within their desktop app

Here is an article about how to enable this setting for regular users. 

Option 2: Use Integrations

Time Doctor also offers integrations with various project management and productivity tools through the Time Doctor Chrome extension which allows regular users to track time to tasks from third-party tools where they can potentially create tasks for themselves. 

You can see the list of all the supported integrations on the Integrations page.
