You can time on any task by clicking on a record (a row in a table) and then clicking on the timer.
The timer will turn orange and start to time. You can navigate away from this table, close the app or move over to your mobile, and the timer will continue to count.
If you hover over the timer, it will show you which client and task you are currently timing on.
Once you are done working on the task, click stop.
All time captured in this way will go to the time log table in the time log department.
You can learn more about the Time Log table and authorizing time here.
