Do you avoid using "General" in timesheets?

Developers should avoid using "General" project in their timesheets.

"General" should only be used in rare cases, when you're doing something that:

  • Doesn’t fit in any of the existing projects
  • Isn’t worth creating a new project, as it won’t be a long term project or repeated in the future

If you’re using "General" in timesheets frequently, then it’s a problem.
