Installing the Chrome extension
Open the Toggl Track browser extension in the Chrome Webstore.
Click “Add to Chrome”.
Click the button next to the address bar and log in with your Toggl Track account.
Installing the Firefox add-on
Open the Toggl Track browser extension inside the Firefox Add-on Store.
Click “Add to Firefox”.
Click the button next to the address bar and log in with your Toggl Track account.
Microsoft Edge has support for Chromium extensions, so you can use the Toggl Track browser extension on Microsoft Edge by downloading it from the Chrome Store.
Toggl Track extension icon
Once you install the add-on, a Toggl Track icon will be added to the right of the address bar.
When the button is grey with a blue “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 pink it means there is a time entry currently running.
Click on the Toggl Track browser extension to reveal the timer’s dropdown. 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 Toggl Track browser extension.
Start Timer Link
If the tool you’re using is integrated via the Toggl Track browser extension, 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 Track 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 the browser, which means you can get quite creative with it:
Toggl Track browser extension Settings
To access settings, click on the Toggl Track browser extension icon inside the address bar and then click the cogwheel icon in the top right corner of the popup.
General is the default tab within the Settings panel. Each option has a short description available inside the actual extension. Here's a shortlist of the most important options.
Start timer automatically – Starts the timer for the most recent time entry when the browser is opened. If your timer is unexpectedly & randomly starting, it's likely because this option is turned on.
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. This feature is very useful for building a time tracking habit.
Show post-start popup – Opens the edit form immediately after clicking a "Start timer" link
Show "Start timer" item in the right-click menu – Makes it super easy to start a timer with any highlighted text.
Remind me to track time (tracking reminders)
Receive a notification whenever the browser is being used and you are not tracking time. You can define the time frame when this is active (e.g. your work hours) and the length of time necessary to trigger a reminder. This feature is very useful for building a time tracking habit. You can activate the feature from Settings -> General.
The notification to track time will look like this.
Receive a notification when the timer is running but you haven't touched the keyboard or the mouse in a while. Also very useful when building a time tracking habit. After the notification has popped up, you can decide whether to keep the time or discard it. You can activate the feature from Settings -> General.
Idle tracking notifications will look like this.
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.
On the Integrations tab, you can select which web apps you want the Toggl Track extension 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 URLs for integration with self-hosted versions of the apps supported by the Toggl Track browser extension.
You can also create Custom Integrations by enabling development mode.
Using code, you can control what data from these apps becomes projects, descriptions, and tags when you start a new timer. When you’re done, export your custom integration and share it with your team using the export and import options.
Note: When tracking time by clicking the Toggl Track button in another app, we will match the Project name (if a matching one exists in Track), and add any tags and description from the webapp you're using as well. We do not add tasks, these can be added manually.
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.
Use Ctrl + Shift + E to create a new time entry.
Extension keyboard shortcuts can be customized in the following places:
