The Timer page is arguably the most important section in Toggl Track. It's the only place (within the web application) where creating a time entry is possible. The Timer page is also the only page in the web application that is not workspace-specific. It will always display data from all your organizations and workspaces. This is to give you a full picture of how you tracked your time throughout your day.
Wondering how you can create a time entry? Visit the Creating a Time Entry article for more information.
Need to reduce clutter? You can go into Focus mode from the Timer page (paid plan feature). To do so, click the Focus mode button in the Time Entry area while there is a time entry running.
While in Focus mode you can:
Stop Focus mode by clicking X in the top right corner
See the currently running time entry
Stop the currently running time entry
Press Esc to stay in Focus mode without it taking over the full-screen
Just under the Time Entry area you can see your total tracked time for Today and This week, along with a Views drop-down that allows you to visualize the Timer page in different ways. You can choose to view all hours, or only billable hours, via a setting under the Views control.
Clicking on Today's or This Week's totals will take you to a filtered Summary Report. The current running timer will never be included in your reports, and please note Reports are always workspace-specific.
Visual Options for the Timer Page
The Timer page has multiple views:
List view shows you all time entries in a list, allowing you to group them or bulk-edit them as needed. Read more here.
Calendar views show time entries for the week or a single day in a calendar, allowing you to quickly see gaps in your time entries and add/edit time entries as needed. Read more here.
Note: You will not see this dropdown until after you create your first time entry.
Besides switching between List-view and Calendar-view, you can also see other useful information using this drop-down.
Switch between showing total hours or billable hours only on Daily/Weekly totals shown on List/Weekly/Daily views.
Show/Hide weekends on calendar view
