How to Use Time Tracking in Producteev

1. Locate timer button on a Producteev task

Go to a project and select a required task. A dialogue window opens, where you can view and edit the contents of the task. You will see the Start timer button under the name of the task.

2. Start timer on a task

Click the Start timer button and TMetric will start recording your Producteev working time. Notice that the Start timer button changes to the Stop timer button and displays the time spent on the task.

If you are the account owner or assigned admin in TMetric and start the timer for the first time, TMetric pulls out from Producteev and adds to your TMetric account:

  • task name
  • task ID
  • project name
  • subtask

You can track time not only for tasks but also Producteev subtasks. 

The corresponding time entry appears on the Time page in the TMetric web app. You can easily navigate back to the Producteev task or subtask simply by clicking the link icon next to the task name.

3. Edit time entry, if necessary

A time entry with an external task can be edited. You can edit the name of the task, project, and subtask without losing a link to the Producteev.

To disassociate the TMetric task from the Producteev task, click the cross icon next to the task name in the bottom right corner of the time entry editor.
