Manual Mode allows you to easily enter time after a specific activity has already concluded. It's very useful in cases where you forget to turn on the regular timer.
Enter Manual Mode by clicking on the plus icon underneath the play icon. You can toggle between Timer Mode and Manual Mode by typing the M key on the keyboard.
Tips and Tricks
The order in which you add details doesn't matter. You can define the time first and then the project and description, or you can do it the other way around.
You can move between fields by using the Tab key. Pressing Tab moves you to the right, pressing Shift + Tab moves you to the left.
To save the entry without using a mouse, tab over to the pink "plus" button and hit Enter when it is highlighted.
Clicking on the Start field allows you to define both the start date and time. Time entries assigned to a future date will quickly disappear from the Timer page. Those entries can be viewed on the Detailed Reports page.
Use Shortcuts @ and # for Projects and Tags respectively while entering a description. You can disable this setting on the Profile page.
If you click on a Favorite in manual mode, it will create a new manual time entry for that Favorite instead of starting a timer.
