Public Favorites

Workspace Admins who would like to share a Favorite with the rest of their workspace members, can do so by setting the Favorite to Public. To do so, just hover on the Favorite in the Favorite bar, and click on the Public switch. The Favorite will then appear for every team member in the workspace.

Using Favorites

To start a time entry from a Favorite, simply click the Favorite time entry in the bar.

Start timer from Favorites Bar

We display the most micro-level detail for each Favorite's label.

  • If you only have a Project entered for the time entry, we will show the Project name.

  • If you have a Project and Task entered, we will show Task name.

  • If you have project, Task and Description entered, we will display the Description.

To start a Favorite via the keyboard, just press the number that corresponds with the Favorites position on the bar. For example, in the example above, pressing 1 will start a time entry for Responding to Client Emails. Favorites can be re-ordered by dragging and dropping them to their desired locations.

Click on a Favorite in Manual mode to create a new time entry with the same details. Enter a start and end time as needed to it and click on the checkmark to save the time entry.

Deleting Favorites

To delete a Favorite time entry, hover over it on the Favorites bar and click Delete.
