What you will find in the workspace 

In the Dashboard, you will have a weekly calendar with a visual representation of the time you have tracked day by day. When you start tracking time on a Project, a colorful card will appear in your Dashboard showing the length of your time entry and the project’s Phase linked to it. 

On the left, you can see the main menu in blue, allowing you to move smoothly between the different parts of your workspace. 

In the Tasks section, you'll see all your daily tasks organized by project. You can track time for a specific task there.

You can find the recap modules on the right-hand side: personal projects recapclient recapand personal budget recaps. You can personalize the module's position and type by clicking the gear button.  

Customize your settings in the section User profile section on the bottom left.

Where to find your daily tasks

Our Tasks section helps you visualize and prioritize your work. In the Tasks section you'll be able to find your daily assignments.

If you have connected Microsoft To Do during the onboarding, you'll find your To Dos imported there. Use the "assigned to me" filters to see your tasks.

From there, you can also track time for specific tasks. Otherwise, in order to track time, read the guides below.

How to track time in Timeneye

When you access Timeneye, the workspace should already be set up with some of your projects, created by the owner of the workspace. Which means: it's time to track your time! 😉

The core of the time tracking functionalities is the blue Register time button at the left side of the menu.

 Enter the time manually (i.e.: “2h30”);

 Start a timer and let it run while you work.

Time tracking: manual mode

To register a time entry, click on the blue + button on the left side of the menu. Then:

1. Select a Project;
Projects are compulsory to track time in Timeneye. You can pick a project from the list under the Projects menu;
2. Select a Phase;
Phases, too, are compulsory to track time, so make sure to have at least one phase for every project.;
3. Enter the time duration (h; mm);
4. Select the date (dd, mm, yyyy); 
5. Click on Save entry.

 "I need to track time, but I can't find the project!"

Due to Timeneye's levels of permission, not all users in the same workspace have access to the same features. So, you may not be able to create the projects you need to track time for.

If you don't find your projects in the dropdown menu, reach out to the Owner of your workspace and ask them to either 1) Create the project or 2) Add you to the project so you can track time.

(The Owner of the workspace is the person who sent you the invitation)

Time tracking: timers (real-time)

Timers allow you to track time while you work. If you need a timer to keep you focused on the task at hand and a more precise way of measuring time, you should use timers.

Open the Register Time dialog:

1. Select a Project;
2. Select a Phase;
3. Click on the Start timer.

An active Timer will automatically appear in your calendar.
You can recognize an active timer by the small green dot blinking in the bottom right corner. Timers are also bigger than entries and paused timers.

 Auto-save your timers

Do you keep lots of open timers and forget to stop them?

In the User settings section of the workspace, you can set up the daily auto-save for your timers. You can set it at your office closing time, or at different times of the day.

Link your work Calendar to Timeneye

We have built native integrations with Outlook Calendar and Google Calendar. Thanks to these integrations, you can bring all your calendar events to Timeneye, and include them in your timesheets.

Link the calendars using the Link Calendars option on the dashboard.
