There are multiple ways in which in you can create a time log, let's take a look at all of them.

1. Create a time log attached only to a task

This is usually used by freelancers who are given specific tasks by a client and need to report on the time worked for each task.

Howto

  • Go to to the task list, you can see immediately how much time was spent on each task.
  • Select the task you wish to log time: You will then see all the time logs attached to this task.
  • Add your time log by scrolling to the bottom of the log list and complete the form.

2. Create a time log attached only to a block

It is possible that you want to record time worked without having assigned a specific task. This is usually the case for minor work that does not need to have a task associated with the work done.

Howto

  • Go to the time logs section
  • Scroll to the block you wish to add a timelog
  • At the bottom of the time log list
  • Click on the "+" and complete in the form.

You may have noticed in the above video that even though a time log was created and attached to a block, it can also be attached to a task.

3. Create a time log attached only to a project

This is usually quite rare, but it is possible that you need to record a time log without it being associated neither to a task nor to a block. A typical case would be a small project where tasks & blocks are not needed.

Howto

  • Go to the time logs section
  • Scroll to the bottom completely, you will see all the time logs not associated with any blocks.
  • Then click on the "+" and fill in the form.
