Within Teamwork, you can log time to specific tasks on your projects.


Logging time using timers

There are two ways to start a timer on a task.

  • Hover over the task and select the clock icon to the right of the task name. Click Start Timer in the pop-up menu.

  • Hover over the task and press S on your keyboard. 

Once you start a timer, it will run in the lower left-hand corner of your browser window until you select to pause or log the time.

You can also log time manually on an individual task.

  • Hover over the task and select the clock icon to the right of the task name. Click Log Time in the pop-up menu.

  • Hover over the task and press T on your keyboard.

When you select the Log Time option, a modal will open for you to fill out the time entry details.

Note: The Billable checkbox in the time logging modal will be checked or unchecked by default based on the project or task list's billable default setting. You can update this preference for the current time log.

When logging time on a task, you can also click the lock icon to keep the duration as it has been set when you change either start or end time.

If you then change either the start or end time the other will change to match the set time spent.

You can also log time or start a timer directly from the project's Time tab.

Logging time via email

You can log time to a task via email by adding a duration in square brackets as part of your reply to a task notification email.

Time duration can be specified any of the following ways:

  • [1h], [1m], [1h 25m], [1.5], or [1:30]
Time description - add the relevant text between curly brackets. You can also reference tags within the description brackets to add tags to the time entry:

  • {Time log description #TagName}
By default, time logged via email will be marked as non-billable. To specify billable time, add #billable on a separate line of your reply.

Time tags

In the tag picker, you can search for and select from existing project-specific or site-level tags.

You can also add tags via the description tab of the log time modal, using shortcodes:

  • #[tag name] - for tags with multiple words
