How to Install?
- Open Toggl Button inside the Firefox Add-on Store.
- Click “Add to Firefox”.
- Click the button next to the address bar and log in with your Toggl account.
That’s it, now look for “Start timer” in your favorite tools on the web and track your time.
Toggl Button Icon
Once you install the add-on, a Toggl icon will be added to the right of the address bar.
- When the button is grey with a red “x” it means you are currently not logged in.
- When the button is plain grey it means you are not currently tracking time.
- When the button is red it means there is a time entry currently running.
Click on the Toggl Button to reveal timer’s drop down. Here you can check your current time entry, change settings, sync, log out or stop your timer.
- Click on the current Time Entry to open a popup that allows you to change the description, assign Tags and a Project to your Time Entry.
- When you select Projects and Tags you can easily filter them. During Tag selection, the Tags already selected will be highlighted in green.
- When the timer is not running, you can choose to continue the latest timer started from the extension.
Start Timer Link
If the tool you’re using is integrated with Toggl, you will see the “Start timer” link:
You can start a new Time Entry by clicking the link and it will copy the description of the item next to it.
Depending on the tool you’re using, the location of the “Start timer” icon will vary. You’ll likely find it within your tasks, issues, cards, to-dos, etc. You can see a few examples of where you can find the link here.
Tracking from any Text on the Web
You can start a new Toggl Time Entry from any text on the web by selecting it and then clicking “Start timer with description” in the right-click menu.
The above example is from Trello, but the feature works with any text inside a Firefox browser, which means you can get quite creative with it:
Toggl Button Settings
You can configure the following settings in Toggl Button under the General tab:
- Default project – set a project that will be assigned to new entries automatically.
- Remember last chosen project – remembers the last project you used on each integration or URL. Overrides the default project.
- Enable automatic tagging – If an integration supports tags or labels, automatically add them to the timer and create them in Toggl. Not available in all integrations.
- Start timer automatically – Starts the timer with the most recent task when the browser is opened.
- Stop timer automatically – Stops the timer when the browser is closed
- Remind me to track time – Receive a notification if you forget to track time during work hours
- Idle detection – Receive a notification when you've been idle and the timer was running, allowing you to discard the time.
- Stop automatically at the end of the day – the currently running timer will be stopped automatically at the time you set as the end of your workday.
- Show post-start popup – Opens the edit form immediately after clicking a "Start timer" link
- Show "Start timer" item in right click menu – Makes it super easy to start a timer with any highlighted text.
- Reset all settings – All Toggl Button settings will be reset and you will be logged out.
On the Integrations tab, you can select which web apps you want the Toggl Button to show up on. All are disabled by default and you can choose to enable them all or pick the apps you want the extension to have access to.
At the bottom on the Integrations tab you can also add custom domains for self-hosted versions of the apps supported by Toggl Button.
With the Pomodoro Timer you can set up notifications that will let you know that it’s time to take a break.
You can enable it from the Settings on the Pomodoro tab:
You can choose to automatically stop the running timer when the Pomodoro period ends. You can also choose to have a sound notify you and you can set how loud you want that to be. When the time is up a notification pops up to let you know you’ve done well and deserve to take a break.
Once you’re done with your break you can select to continue the last entry or start a new one.
Idle Detection notifies you of the time that you’ve been inactive/away from the keyboard. After the notification has popped up, you can decide whether to keep the time or discard it. Here’s what it looks like:
- Clicking the close icon in the corner will keep the idle time and let the time entry continue.
- Clicking “Discard idle time” will stop the time entry and remove the idle time from it.
- Selecting “Discard idle and continue” will remove the idle time from the entry but continue tracking.
