There are different ways to document times in timeghost:
1. The time recording (Stopwatch mode)
2. The classic time booking (Input mode)
3. Booking times via the calendar
4. Booking times on a project via the Feed
5. Automated time booking
In this article we will show you how time recording works, i.e. the live recording of your working hours on a task, accurate to the second.
1. Timer: Stopwatch mode
You always record a time using the Timer (1) navigation point:
To stop a time to the second, you have to be in the Â mode (2):
2. Name task
In the first step, you enter what you are working on in the task field (1) (e.g. "Offer for Smith Company").
As soon as you have entered 3 characters here, timeghost compares the times you have already recorded and any project tasks (2) you have already entered with your current input.
If a suitable suggestion is shown to you, you can mark it using the checkbox (3) in order to transfer all available information directly to your current task.
At the same time, the 4 button (4) turns yellow, which means that you can theoretically book the task with the current suggested values:
3. Additional information
Of course, you can also adjust your task again before saving:
3.1 Project assignment
To assign your task to a project, click on the 0 button and then select a project (e.g. "Migration SharePoint"):
After the project has been selected, any default settings for the billing capability, stored for the selected project (1), is adopted (e.g. "Billable" (2)):
To assign one or more tags to the task, select the ´ icon, mark the required ags(s) (e.g. "Tag 2" and "Tag 3") and then click Apply:
You can set the billability using the $ icon. Yellow means Billable, black means Non-billable:
4. Start and end a recording
Click on the yellow 4 button (1) to start recording:
If you want to stop the recording, just press the yellow < button (2) again:
Your recorded time is saved immediately afterwards:
5. Continue a time recording
You can continue a previous time recording (just like any other time you have booked btw) later.
The prerequisite for this is again that you are in Â mode.
Click on ⁝ (1) next to your recorded time that you want to continue:
Then select 4 Continue Recording (2):
