The time is presented horizontally, with the days going downwards. You can navigate either by scrolling, using the arrows on your keyboard, or the indicators in the interface. You can also scale the timeline to fit your day by hovering and dragging left or right.
Right now it is week 17, on the 26th of April and the time is 17:21. The red circle indicates where we are. Track time by navigating to your selected timeslot. Press, drag, and release.
Write a description for the entry and select a project and tag. In the side drawer, you also have the option to mark the entry as billable and choose who should be able to see it through the sensitivity option.
Now, we have a total of three entries presented differently. First, on the right, a planned entry which shows what is coming. Second, in the middle, an ongoing entry which shows what is going on. Third, to the left, a completed entry which shows what has been done.
If we check the key figures, we have logged time in the key-figure to the left, and total planned time in the key-figure to the right. To see the key figures for each day, hover on the day header. Logged time is shown in the key-figure on top, and total planned time in the key-figure on the bottom.
There are multiple ways you can edit an entry. Move an entry by hovering on it, then press, drag, and release. You can edit the start and end time of an entry using the input fields, the scroll wheel, or dragging the edges of the cards.
Here we can see all the data for the current month, but you can change this through the filters. So let's filter our website project for the last seven days. First, we go to the projects filter; then selecting the project.
Second, we go to the date picker, choosing the option to see the last seven days.
Our data will be displayed in the table based on the display settings and exportable to other formats by pressing the export button.
