Starting and Stopping Timers

Tasks can have time tracked against them by using a timer, or by manually adding time. Being able to see how much time was logged against how much time was allocated is a critical path to reporting on how teams can improve efficiencies within their workday.

Starting a Timer

To start a timer on a task, first make sure you are viewing today's date in the Calendar view by clicking "Today". You should see a blue timer indicator that shows the amount of time tracked against the allocation with a Start icon to the left side. Click on the Start button and a timer will begin counting showing the amount of hours, minutes and seconds next to the amount of time allocated.


If the task is completed you won't be able to start a timer. First uncomplete the task by clicking the check button, then you can resume the timer.


When the timer reaches the same amount of time that was allocated, you can receive a notification informing you that you have reached your allocation for that task. If you go over the allocation, you will also notice the timer changes to a red color. To manage your notifications go to the Notifications settings page.
