Individuals perceive and imagine time uniquely, impacting their engagement in tasks and activities. Information systems are vital tools in these contexts, especially in work settings. Varied perceptions and preferences of time influence the dynamic between work structures, people, technologies, and tasks, either facilitating or impeding collaboration. Investigating these disparities is crucial for enhancing teamwork. This study introduces the concepts of individual time experience in the dimensions of time perception, time interval estimation and time interval preferences, reviews relevant literature, and points out to their significance in information systems. Based on socio-technical systems theory, a research agenda is developed that raises key questions for the future research. We contribute to the literature by emphasising the concept of time experience beyond time perception in the interaction with information systems. Practitioners gain knowledge about how information systems development as well as in-company tasks and processes can be improved to enhance collaboration between employees.
