This article will show you how to get started with the TimeChimp tracker.

Table of contents

Using the Windows app

After installation, the Windows app will be launched every day to map your working day automatically. The TimeChimp icon can be found at the bottom right of the screen. If you don't see it, it can also be hidden behind the arrow on the left.

When you click on the TimeChimp icon, the menu opens. Within it, you'll find several things:

  1. Notifications

  2. Shortcut to the web application (browser version)

  3. Support

  4. More

    1. Settings

    2. Updates

    3. Logging off

    4. Shutting off

Registering

During the day, the application records your activity. You will then find this on the timeline view in TimeChimp. Go to Register > instead of the daily/weekly view, now choose the timeline view. You will find the tracked times on the left-hand side of the screen. On the right, you will find the regular/ actual registrations.

On the left, your activity of the day appears divided into time slots and possibly already linked to clients and/or projects.

You can use the activity registration on the left side to complete your hour registration on the right as carefully as possible. Thus, you click on an activity to fill in that period or select a period yourself with your mouse.

Then the activity appears on the right-hand side. Here it is only a final registration that can be offered for approval. You can always adjust the duration of the activity here and link the registration to any project/administration.

Important to know: Only the person to whom the account belongs sees all the information. The Administrator only sees the time registered in the registration section.

Absence detection

Of course, we are not tied to our laptops all day. We get coffee, make, chat or receive a call. The TimeChimp Tracker automatically records inactivity. You easily assign this inactivity to the right activity in TimeChimp. For example, a phone call with a customer. You set the threshold from when absence is detected in Settings > Detections > Absence threshold.

The period when no activity was detected can be booked directly as shown below!
