Is there anyway to track and show time spent on a task?

 

Ideally we would budget say 5 hours to a task and then track the number of hours spent on it.

 

Allowing us to see "oh wow this was a 5 hour budget but we spent 15 hours, no wonder the task is overdue" or the inverse "wow this was 5 hour budget and only 1 hour was spent and the task is still not done".

Hi!

No, there’s no time tracking or any similar features in Planner. For more advanced features for planning / tracking etc you either have to do this outside of planner or use a more robust project till like Microsoft Project or any other app..
