What are projects for?
Projects (and clients) are key for organizing time entries in Toggl Track. By assigning your time entries to projects (and then to clients), you can easily make reports and look over your time-tracking data in your workspace.
How can I create a project?
Connecting Projects and Clients
In Toggl Track, a Client can have many Projects, but each Project can only have one Client.
So, if you don’t typically work on an assignment/project basis, but want to keep track of the services that you provide, consider entering your clients’ names as Projects.
Creating projects using the "Projects" page
Click the Projects tab on the menu bar located on the left side, as shown in the screenshot below:
Click on the “+ New Project” button in the top right corner.
A popup window will appear allowing you to
Note: While Free plans can choose from 14 available Project colors, paid plans can pick any color from a HEX code color picker.
Creating projects while creating a new Time Entry
To create a project while creating a time entry:
Click on the "folder" icon to get a drop-down list of projects and start typing the name of your new project.
The drop-down list of suggestions will try to suggest a matching (existing) project name as you type. If you type a project name that does not exist you will be offered the option to create a new project.
At this point, with the name of your new project typed into the search field, you can either click on the "+ Create new project" button with your mouse pointer or use a keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Enter / Cmd+Enter to create a new project.
A popup window with additional options will appear allowing you to:
name your project,
select a client
select the privacy setting
choose the recurring status (paid feature)
set a time estimate (paid feature)
set the billing status (paid feature)
select the workspace where this project will be created
Useful tips for creating projects
By default, all projects are private.
You can choose to leave the new project private or mark it as Public to make it visible to the whole team. Open this article for more details on access rights and project privacy settings.
Viewing all projects
You can view all created projects by clicking on the Projects tab on the left side menu using the Toggl Track web app. On the Projects page, clicking on Project or Client column headers will sort the list for you by that entity.
Moving data between workspaces with projects
You can move your data between Workspaces by choosing another Project label. When editing time entries on the Detailed Reports page pick a Project from another Workspace, to move your time entry to that Workspace. This feature is also available with Bulk Edit.
Using project templates for faster creation of projects
Users on paid plans can create new projects faster by using the Project Template feature.
Selecting who can create projects (and clients)
Admins on paid plans can prevent regular users from creating a Project by going to Workspace settings
