In Clockify, there are two types of managers: Project managers and Team managers. 

Project managers can see all tracked time on their projects and can edit various aspects of their projects, such as: 

  • Setting estimates
  • Adding tasks
  • Managing project access 
  • Launching kiosk (if enabled)

Team managers have similar permissions but focus on overseeing their team members and groups. They can: 

  • See all tracked time of their team members
  • Edit their team’s time (if enabled)
  • Approve submitted timesheets 
  • Launch kiosk (if enabled)

Team manager role is an additional feature available through upgrading your workspace to a Standard, Pro, or Enterprise plan.

Customizing visibility of certain app features, like hiding pages, also applies to managers. Managers have access to Reports, and project managers additionally have access to the Projects page.

It’s also possible to revoke someone’s Project/Team manager role for the specific project from the Projects page.

  1. Go to the Projects page
  2. Choose Access tab
