Using the Timer on Timekeeping

The Timer, the key feature of Timekeeping, revolutionizes productivity and time tracking. Users can use the Timer to track the time they spend working within Litify and associate their Time Entry with the proper record. Users can also manually add Time Entries by clicking the + icon on a specific date. 

Tracking Time with the Timer

Accessing the Timer

The Timer can be found in the Utility Bar of the Time Tracking app, or within the Utility Bar of the custom app which was created during Timekeeping's Post-Install steps


Note: the Timer can also be opened in its own window, which allows Users to access their Time Entries from anywhere on their computer.



Starting a Time Entry with the Timer

To start tracking a new Time Entry with the Timer, simply click the big Play button in the Timer window. The window can then be minimized and the running timer will display in the Utility Bar.


Pausing the Timer

Pause a Time Entry by clicking on the running Timer in the Utility Bar. Users will see the prompt 'What are you working on?' if they haven't entered the required details to Save the entry. 



Saving a Time Entry

In order to save, Users must click the unsaved Entry to add more details like Rate, related Record, or a brief summary of what they accomplished, then click Save

Required details can be controlled by Admins within 'Time Tracking Admin Settings,' located in the Navigation Bar.


Alternatively, Users can click Edit on a Time Entry in progress to add the required details to save their Entry.

Note: every time a running timer is edited, the duration is paused while edits are taking place and will only continue once the entry is resumed


Resuming an Entry

Time Entries can be resumed by clicking the Play button on their right. Time Entries from previous days can also be resumed; however, they will be duplicated to display on the current day. This feature saves Users time spent adding details to save repeat entries and prevents bulk in the Time Tracking table. 


Searching for a Record with the Timer

Users can also use the Timer to search for a Record. Click the Search icon in the upper right of the Timer > Type a record name > Click the Play button to start a timer. 


Manually Adding Time Entries

Manually Adding Time Entries on 'Today'

Users can add Entries manually by clicking the Plus Icon (+) on the date, entering the required details, and clicking Save. 


Use the blue buttons to the right and left of the 'Duration' field to easily adjust the time in 1, 5, and 10 minute increments. 


Adding Time Entries for a Past Date in the Same Week

Time Entries can be added to an earlier day of the week by scrolling down to the desired date and clicking the Plus Icon (+), then entering the required details, and clicking Save.


Adding Time Entries for a Previous Week 

To add Time Entries for a previous week, use the arrow icon (<) to navigate back to the desired week, then scroll to find the date. Follow the same manual entry procedure.


Adding Time Entries via Search

Users can also use the Timer to search for a Record and manually add an entry. Click the Search icon in the upper right of the Timer > Type a record name > Click the (+) icon > Enter required details > Click Save 


Using the Timer in the Mobile App 

Timekeeping is available on the Salesforce app! Users will be able to manually add Time Entries from their mobile devices by clicking the Time Tracking icon in on the bottom of their custom app created in the Post-Install steps, or by selecting the Time Tracking app from the App Launcher. 


To add a Time Entry, click the Time Tracking icon, then the Plus Icon (+) on the right. Enter the same information required on the desktop version, click Save
