The TimeCamp desktop application has two modes you can switch between. Default, manual mode, works familiar to timesheet’s timer.


1. In MANUAL MODE, you can select a task from application’s context menu or task widget.

To select a task from the context menu, right-click on TimeCamp’s icon in your system taskbar and select the “Start a task…” option.

Next, task selection window will appear. Simply select the desired task or create a new one.



Task widget will show you how much time you’ve already gathered to selected task during the current day.


2. Another way to track time is to use the AUTOMATIC MODE. You can switch between modes in application’s context menu or by clicking on M/A letters on task widget.

Automatic mode automatically recognizes tasks you’re working on based on keywords. The application is looking for them in application names, URL addresses or window titles.

No matter which mode you will go with, the application will also gather the computer data/ your computer activity (unless you disable it in the settings).
