How to Use Time Tracking In Salesforce

1. Find timer button in a Salesforce task

Click a required task from a list. A dialog window opens, where you can view and edit the contents of the task. 

2. Start timer on a task

Click the Start timer button and TMetric will start recording your Salesforce 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 Salesforce and adds to your TMetric account:

  • task name
  • task ID
  • project name

The corresponding time entry appears on the Time page in the TMetric web app. You can easily navigate back to the Salesforce task 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 tags without losing a link to the Salesforce task.

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

4. View a time report

Reports show the time from different external systems, as well as the time entered manually in TMetric.
