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

Logging time using the In-browser timer

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

  • Within the drop-down to the left of the task name.


Hovering over the time icon inline with the task name and selecting start timer.


Once either option has been selected the timer will run in the lower left-hand corner of your browser window until you select to pause or log the time.



Logging time manually

If you haven't used a timer while you were working on a task, you can log time against it manually at any time.

The log time option is available in the same two places as above when viewing a task:

  • Within the drop-down menu to the left of the task name.
  • Hovering over the time icon inline with the task name and selecting start timer.
When you select either of these options you will be presented with the modal below to enter your time details.


Note: If you choose to tick the billable box, any further time logged on tasks will remember if you have ticked or un-ticked previously.

When logging time on a task you can also click on 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 will also find an option to log time in the time section of the project.

Logging time by email

  • When responding to a notification relating specifically to a task, you can send [time] as part of the reply, for example:
    • [1h]
    • [1m]
    • [1h 25m]
    • [1.5]
    • [1:30]
  • Add any text in {} for a time log description e.g: {This is the description for the timelog}. This is an optional extra.
  • If the notification email relates to a task or a comment on a task then the time is logged against that task
  • If the notification email does not relate in any way to a task the time is logged against the project

Time tags

You can also create tags when logging time. Click the Tags tab in the log time modal, and enter the name of your new tag.



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

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