How it works

Who is it for?

An efficient way to track the time you and your team members spend working on tasks. The Stopwatch is available to all users on your account who have permission to track time on tasks:

  • Owner
  • Member+
  • Member

How to activate it

If you want your team to use the Stopwatch, it needs to be enabled first:

  1. Go to System settings and open Time and Expense settings
  2. Enable Time tracking and Time estimation (you can enable the Round up option here if you want your tracked time to be rounded up to a certain number or to have a minimum time entry).


How to run the Stopwatch

Once you've enabled the Stopwatch, open any task and you'll find it on the right side.

To activate it, simply click on the Play icon.

You can close the task modal and go elsewhere in ActiveCollab or your browser while the Stopwatch tracks your time.
You can't track time on multiple tasks at the same time. 


Saving the tracked time

When you want to save the time you've tracked:

  • Click on the export button in the Stopwatch menu
  • Edit the Time record if needed
  • Click on "Add time record"
  • Great, the time you tracked has been saved!
