Toggl Desktop is a small desktop application that will help you track time more conveniently. It sits quietly in your system tray and when you need it (to start/stop/edit your work), it’s quickly accessible. It does what it’s designed to do best – tracks time.
As on the web, you can also add time manually in the mobile version:
1. Instead of ‘Start’, click on the ‘What are you working on?‘ field.
2. Enter all the time entry details as you would normally
3. Instead of ‘Start’, click on the ‘Back‘ button at the top left. Voila!
Also useful to know:
Find out which version of the desktop app you are using:
If you are not sure whether you have the latest one, exit your desktop and restart it to prompt the upgrade searcher. If there’s a more recent version, it will be offered to you automatically.
Exiting means completely closing your Toggl Desktop. To do this, right-click on the tray icon and choose ‘Exit’ from – that closes the program completely. Closing your desktop from the cross at the top right of the application will simply store it in your tray, but will not close it altogether.
Toggl Desktop needs Glibc 2.14 to run, due to limitations of the framework (TideSDK) used.
On Ubuntu following packages are necessary:
Currently, Toggl Desktop is only tested on Ubuntu. Most probably all recent debian-based distributions will work, but they are untested. RH based distributions (RHEL, CentOS, Fedora) are unsupported by the TideSDK framework but they may work, provided the existence of recent enough glibc.
At the moment there is only 64bit binary package available. 32bit version is planned. There are no distribution-specific packages available. We are working on adding a generic .deb package which should be usable on all (recent) Debian based distributions.
Toggl Desktop has been tested with Unity, Gnome and KDE in general should be working. There are known issues with LXDE.
