Easily track the time spent on tasks by using timers. Here’s how you can manage them:

Accessing the Timer

  • Click the timer icon at the top right of the application to open the timer management screen.

Starting a Timer

  1. Open the Timer Popup: Click the timer icon.

  2. Set Timer Details:

    • Choose the project to link the timer.

    • Optionally, specify the project, task, and service for more precise tracking.

  1. Start the Timer: Click the start button.

💡TIP: You can also start a timer directly from a task. The recorded time will automatically link to the task’s project and service.

Stopping a Timer

  • Stop the Timer: Click the stop button at the top, or click the timer icon on the task.

  • Automatic Recording: The worked time, start and end times, and any linked project, task, and service info will be recorded and added to the timer management screen.

Managing Time Entries

  • View Entries: In the lower portion of the timer screen, time entries are grouped by day with a total time for each day.

  • Restart a Timer: Click the play icon next to any time entry to restart it.

  • Modify or Delete Entries: First, click on the left portion of the desired entry in the list to make changes or delete it:

Then, you can use the Edit popup to make the changes you want:

NOTE: You can’t make changes to time entries that were already billed.

  • More Options: For entries not in the list, go to Time Tracking > Time Entries.

⚠️ Important Notes

1) One Timer at a Time: Only one timer can run at a time. Starting a new timer stops the current one.

2) Time Limits:

2.1) The time limit has been reached: The following icon indicates that the maximum time value allowed has been reached based on the time tracking mode defined in your organization's settings.

2.2) In Start and End Time mode, the timer cannot exceed 11:59 PM.

2.3) In Duration mode, the timer cannot exceed 23 hours and 59 minutes in a day.

The timer stops automatically when these limits are reached, saving the current time.
