You can track time via the global time tracking button from everywhere in awork. Just click on the stopwatch and your timer starts. This helps you especially when you need to start tracking times fast, e.g. a customer calls you, and when you want to add the details later, e.g. when the call is over.
You can add the following details to the timer immediately or later on:
- Type of Work
- Is the tracked time billable?
Timer on tasks and projects
In addition to the timer in the corner of the screen, the timer can also be started directly on tasks and projects.
In the task overview, you will find the timer directly on the tasks, next to the editor:
In the project or task details, you will find the timer at the top right, above the details:
On the dashboard or in search, you can start and stop the timer from the action menu. You can do this from anywhere you can access the menu of the task, project or one of your already tracked times.
If you start a new timer, e.g. on another task, the previous time is automatically stopped.
If you do not use the time recording with the start & stop buttons, you can easily hide them in your profile settings (via your name at the top right). Note that this only hides the timers - it does not switch off the time tracking.
