How to Use Time Tracking In Todoist
1. Locate timer button on a Todoist task
On the Projects tab, select a project. Hover over a required task, the Start timer button will appear next to the task.
2. Start timer on a task
Click the Start timer button and TMetric will start recording your Todoist 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 Todoist 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 Todoist 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 and project without losing a link to the Todoist issue.
To disassociate the task from the Todoist 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.
