Can one task be associated with multiple projects in Time Doctor?


You can associate the same task name to multiple projects. (But each task will be treated as a separate instance of that task - time will not be tracked cumulatively across projects.) This means that you can have the same task name for one or more projects.

1) Development
2 Support
And you have a single, common task "Checking emails" that you want to use for both Projects. Please note that tasks on the screenshot are regular tasks created from with the desktop app.

You can create permanent task for these 2 projects from Projects and Permanent tasks page.

You will notice that both these tasks have a bracket that says the name of the project beside the task name:

The Project report page will now look like this:
