In Tyme, times are recorded on tasks. To create your first task, you first need a project. Click on "+ Project". After you have created your project, click on "+ Task" to create your first task. Press the start button to begin record the time.
Besides times, Tyme can also record travel costs. First create a mileage task:
Then press the "Car" button (iOS) to start the mileage tracking.
Have you got many projects? Then it can be useful to group projects into categories. A category can be e.g. a customer or a separation into private and customer projects. You can filter by categories and the statistics can compare categories with each other. Projects without categories are always displayed above projects with categories:
- Project 1 - Project 2 Customer A - Project 3 - Project 4 - … Customer B - Project 5 - Project 6 - …
If you want to record your times more detailed, you can also create sub-tasks under tasks. So you can create concrete task like flyer, homepage or similar under a task like design, development, etc.
- Project 1 - Task 1 - Task 2 - Sub-task 1 - Sub-task 2 - Project 2 - Task 1 - Task 2
