Record exactly how much time you spent on a task with help of timer. Start timer when you start working on a task and stop when you finished. Time spent will be recorded in your task.
To use timer first enable time tracking for your task:
Now expand the task and click Start timer:
Timer window will appear in menu bar:
it displays hours and minutes in HH:MM format. Initially it will show 00:00, after a minute it will be 00:01 and so on. Blinking colon “:” means that timer is running.
There are some buttons in that window:
- Pause: pause timer. Have a break.
- Stop button to end the work session. Time spent will be saved and timer window will close.
- Complete button to end work session and complete the task. Timer will stop, time spent recorded and task made completed.
You may close the timer window. While timer is running you will always see the time in menu bar:
If you stop time and start again it will start from 00:00. That doesn’t mean that time you spent in previous session is lost. Timer only show time spent in current session. All spent time is added regardless of how many times you start and stop the timer.
While timer is running the time is saved to server every minute. You will not lose recorded time if you accidentally close your browser. Time is also saved when you sign out of HiTask.
