Introduction

TimeCamp is a time tracker which allows you to track time on specific tasks/projects in many various ways. You can track time manually on web timesheets, your mobile phone, automatically with desktop application or integrate with one of many project management softwares available and track time directly there with our Google Chrome plugin.

After logging in to your TimeCamp account you will be automatically redirected to the Timesheet view. Here you can add time to specific project or task.

Adding new tasks

Timesheets

Now that you’re done with adding new tasks you can start tracking time on them. Go to “Timesheets” link in the left menu.

There are 2 different types of timesheets available. Each has its own values and allows you to do different things.
The default timesheet view is the Textual Timesheet. By default it loads the present day, but you can select a different one by clicking on the calendar (1). The “Show more” button a the bottom will load the previous days (2).

Textual Timesheet

The textual timesheet is the best solution to track time on tasks manually. You can either enter desired duration of time which you spent working on a specific task, or use our timer to start and stop tracking time whenever you wish.

To add time entry click on the “I want to work on…/em>” link (1) and select the desired task from the list (2). Next, enter the amount of time you wish to assign to a desired task, along with optional information (3). When done, click on the green “Add time” button and enjoy adding your first time entry!

Congratulations, you’ve just added another time entry!

Note that you can delete each entry at any time by clicking on the Trash icon visible when you hover your mouse over specific time entry.

Graphical Timesheet

Graphical timesheet is a view which is designed to help users add time to the system manually. It is divided into two parts – project column on the left and activities column on the right. The right column is optional and filled with information gathered from desktop application, which gathers data about computer usage (applications used and websites visited). To activate specific date, simply click on the column representing it.

Hint: values represented in blocks are approximated. Single block represents 5 minutes of time. The activity/project that pop up after moving your mouse over desired block represents the activity on which you’ve spent most of those 5 minutes.

Activities column includes all online and offline activities, such as applications used, websites visited or manually entered offline data.
