Using the timer(s) to record time

Alerts and notices

In the Entry tab (Actions > Time & Expense Entry), you can use the timer buttons to automatically record the time for a transaction.

  1. To start the timer, click the Start Timer button button in the row for the transaction you want to time. When the timer is running, the elapsed time is shown in the lower right corner of the tab.
  2. To stop the timer, click the Stop Timer button button.


  • You can start the timer before you begin entering a time or expense transaction.
  • You can run multiple timers in a timesheet. When running multiple timers, you can pause one and start another, or you can run them simultaneously.
  • To enable multiple timers, choose Setup > User Preferences > Time & Expense Entry tab, and mark the Allow simultaneous timers checkbox.
