Getting new habits to stick may be quite a task – especially if you need to convince someone else to do something. Here are a few tips and tricks from us to help your team get toggling!


The key to all teamwork is communication, so be transparent and honest about the importance of time tracking and especially why time tracking is needed. Please explain how the entire team can benefit from tracking their time.

Time tracking reminders

We all have moments when we forget to start tracking – especially when time tracking is something new! Luckily there are tracking reminders in both the Toggl Track desktop and our browser extension for Chrome. These reminders can get very annoying, but they do work!

Available on all platforms

Your team doesn't have to be nailed to a browser tab to track time. Toggl Track is also available as a desktop application and on mobile for iOS and Android. Each team member can use whichever app suits them best. All your time entries will always be synced to the server. The specific app they are using doesn't matter.

Idle time tracker

Just like forgetting to turn on the timer can be a problem, so does forgetting to turn it off. If your colleagues are constantly editing entries that have been left running for too long, suggest they turn on the Idle tracker feature. It's available in the Toggl Track browser extension and Toggl Track desktop.
