Web Timer

Using the web timer

Hubstaff now offers a web timer built right into the website that can by used without needing to download or install anything.

Here is how to use the new web timer:

Step 1

You will see the web timer shown in the top left of the screen (It is visible on all pages on the site). When clicked, it will open up the web timer window. You will be able to choose the project you wish to track time to, as well as any tasks that are assigned.

Step 2

When you begin tracking time, the timer will turn blue. You will see the time tracked during that session, as well as the total time that has been tracked for the day.

Step 3

The timer can be minimized to a smaller version by clicking the arrow at the bottom of the window, you can also minimize the timer even further by clicking on the minimize line at the top (2).

Step 4

From the minimized window, you can expand it again by clicking on the box on the right side. You can also close the window entirely by clicking on the “X”.

Step 5

Any weekly limits that have been set will also show on the timer, as well as the remaining balance.

Note: The web timer can be clicked and dragged anywhere on the page to ensure it does not cover or block any of the information on the pages you are viewing.

Note: The web timer is a great way to easily track time right from the site. However, if you wish to have the full set of features that we offer (screenshots, activity percentages, URL and App tracking), you will want to install one of the dedicated desktop clients. They can be downloaded here.

Note: Be sure to press the stop button once you are done! If you close your browser while the timer is still running, it will not automatically stop.
