How to track time (various methods)
There are multiple ways to track time in Everhour. Each has its own advantages.
In this article
Time tracking inside your project management tool
By doing this, we want to let you stay in one program you use most of the day and don’t switch between different tabs or duplicate the task titles to your time tracking tool. Just start a timer from your task and stay focused on your work. This also results in accuracy and reduces the necessary training in your team. Requires Everhour browser extension.
Time tracking from the Everhour website
Log in to your Everhour account and open the Time page. Here you can add or edit all your time entries. Admins can edit their time and employees' time in multiple places across the app.
Search input at the top allows to quickly find a task by its name or project, start the timer, or log hours manually. If you use multiple integrations at once, you can find the tasks from all of them here.
On the 'List' tab, you'll find your time entries grouped by day of the week, in descending order. The current day is always at the top, likewise the last task you worked on that day. If you hover on a specific time entry, you can quickly start the timer, or edit the time inline.
Choosing the project and task in the main input on top of the page, you can either start the timer or log the time manually, selecting the day and leaving optional comments. Time can be recorder as a total or interval (enter '13:40 - 15:30' or '1h 50m').
'Timesheet' tab shows mostly the same data, but in a different interpretation. Here you'll see your tasks grouped together with the total time for a particular day of the week. You can add and edit time by clicking on a particular cell. By clicking on the 'Add Row' button you can add a new task to the timesheet and add the time for it.
At the 'Timecards' tab, you can record your hours at work without having to log time on specific tasks. Perfect for salaried employees or team members who don’t need to log their project work. Timecards app can be turned on / off by team admin on the 'Applications' page.
