Let’s dive in!


First thing first: start with a Timeneye trial

Hard to decide if you like software without trying. This is why you can test Timeneye for 14 days, for free!

Start your trial to see all the features in action. We have provided you with a fully functional trial: you can test all features for 14 days. Also, you can test with as many people as you want!

However, our advice is to test the software with a small group of people first (you and some others in your department/team. You can add more people before the end of the trial, or you can upgrade your entire team to Timeneye once you’ve purchased the subscription.

Testing the tool alone may not show you the full potential of the software, especially for the productivity and reporting features. 


How do I add people to the account?

You can invite users from the section Management> Team Members. All you need is their name and email address.

You can also invite people later on if you prefer.

You can also Import team members from Microsoft/ Google. If your team uses Office 365 or Google Suite, we’ve got you covered.

Right under the green “New team members” button you’ll see the options to import your team members automatically from Microsoft or Google Workspace.

We also offer an option to import users from project management tools like Asana, Basecamp, and Microsoft Planner.

To join your workspace, your team has to accept the email invitation you’ll send them.


Need to bring some data in? Import it!

We don’t just get you to import people in Timeneye. You can also import data: project lists, and historic time tracking data.

You can do it from the Import section: you can import project lists from a csv, or timesheets from a csv.

We recommend doing it if you have a lot of data, or if you want to migrate part of the time you have tracked in other software.


Another quick tip: use project templates

Once you’ve added your team, you need them to track time.
For this, you need to have projects.
A quick way to create multiple projects at the same time, apart from the import feature we already mentioned, is templates.

Basically, you can create one project, and then model all the others using that project as a template. This is particularly useful if the project and activities you do for your clients are all similar.


Set up the daily reminder email

You and your team should all set up the daily reminder email.

This automated email helps remember to track time.

If the software detects that someone has tracked less time than usual, the user will receive a gentle email nudge to remind them to track their time.


Best practices for getting in the habit of tracking time

  • Give a good example: if you use the software daily, your teammates will follow suit
  • Don’t do it in critical moments of the year, like near major deadlines or similar. Time tracking will likely become an afterthought and you’ll be risking sinking the effort.
  • Take advantage of the full trial period
  • Try, test, repeat: you may need a few days before finding the best way to link it to your workflow, but when you’ll get them it’ìll be smooth sailing.
  • Explain the why: you’ll team should know and understand why you’ve started with a new time tracking software, and the value it brings
