If I have some projects that are billed by the hour and others that are paid in a flat lump sum, how would it look when I run reports?

User

Could they be ran together or will they not talk to each other? if that makes sense

well in timecamp you can only automatically count billable hours based on the hourly/rate

User

Is there a way to enter holidays into the program

yes

you can enable attendance module in settings -> addons tab

you can find this manual usefulhttps://www.timecamp.com/kb/vacation-hours/

Yes, hope so. We sometimes have external contractors for our projects – is there a way to input "additional" times on projects that are not tracked to any person?

Hi – can I answer any questions for you?

User

Yes, hope so. We sometimes have external contractors for our projects – is there a way to input "additional" times on projects that are not tracked to any person?

Hello,

no each time entry has to have owner

but you can create some ne custom user

called "contractors" and report all contractors times on it

User

yeah, but that would be an additional billed user I assume.

yes

User

Which feels weird given that "additional" user doesn’t exist and never uses any of Timecamps features

User

I see it more as an administrative thing

User

Ok

unfotrenutelly, I don’t think there is any workaround for this

User

can I remove a user from a task after creating it?

no, it’s not possible

you can remove task, but entry need to have a owner

User

hm ok

how can I start timecamp ?

Hey there. Do you have any questions about our pricing? I’d be happy to help, just let me know.

User

how can I start timecamp ?

User

from command line

User

I use linux.

User

what is the app called ?

simply find the timecamp first

user/share

etc

and then type timecamp

User

hmm.

User

OK

User

thanks

User

/usr/share/timecamp

User

but I cant login with my Google account.

User

where can I set my password ?

okay, so current ver does not support google sing on, it will be in new ver

you can reset pwd, ues

yes

https://www.timecamp.com/kb/reseting-password/

User

hmm.

User

If you started Timecamp with Google account.

User

you cant login your app.

User

because desktop app does not support Google account.

User

I have to logout.

User

then find my password.

yes, but there is a workaround, simply reset the password

User

just a bit messy.

then login in the desktop with new one

on webapp still google sign on should work

sorry

it will be improved in new ver

User

sure.

User

keep up the good work.

thanks

How do I have the website and desktop app have the same information? If I start a task on the website I want the desktop app to display the same task. Is that possible?

Do you have any question about integration?

User

How do I have the website and desktop app have the same information? If I start a task on the website I want the desktop app to display the same task. Is that possible?

Hello,

User

Hello

no sorry, the sync is only one way in this instance. So if you start it in desktop app, it will show in the webapp, however, it synched each 5min

it’s not live

User

Okay. I like the webapp because I can put in notes. The desktop app doesn’t allow for notes.

it will be possible in next desktop ver

will be released really soon

already tested

User

Excellent. That is exciting.

Hi another question

I have a question Does the desktop app sync automatically with the timer I start from the online app?

Hi – can I answer any questions for you?

User

I have a question
Does the desktop app sync automatically with the timer I start from the online app?

Hello,

no, it works only the other way round

so the timer that is started within desktop app will show in timesheet

however it’s not live, and sync every 5min

User

ah

User

ok

it will be live in new version of the app, releases in about a month

User

ok good

User

is there a roadmap I can see of your future updates ?

but I mean only lvie sync in that one direction, still that part when you start in timesheet it won’t shown in the desktop app

be*

no sorry, currenty don’t have a roadmap

User

ok, is that something that will be synced in the future ?

we are working on both way sync, but it won’t be released soon

mobile app has both way sync

User

ok, thank you

you’re welcome

User

how does the tracker work for tracking computer usage ?

User

so it says if I am productive or not ?

User

Also, can I sync my Todoist labels with Timecamp ?

User

Hello ?

hello,m

timecamp generally track all the activties ( it mean browsed websited, used apps, etc..)

then they are categorized into various categories, which are defined as productive or unprodctive by default

User

ok

but you can customize them freely

User

ok cool

User

what is the report that tells me if I am being productive or not ?

could be for example Computer Time -> dashboard report

Tool usage shows productive and neutral combined

User

ok, but more about the time I spent on the project, versus the time that was estimated ?

distracted time: mean unproductive time

oh

that’s a different thing

for that, there is estimates feature:

https://www.timecamp.com/kb/budgeting/

User

all great

User

thank you

you’re welcome

hi

Hi – can I answer any questions for you?

User

hi

User

good morning

Hi,

User

I’m not getting start for this year’s activities

User

help

User

please

what do you mean exactly what activties? computer time one (web usage, app etc.)

?

User

what do you mean exactly what activties? computer time one (web usage, app etc.)

User

for example, there is an activity called multimetric calibration, click to open the time count and the following message appears: select a task.

User

sorry

okay, and when you press that

what happens?

does the list of tasks show?

User

no, do not sample the current list, just last year’s activities.

okay I think it’s beceuase you are not added to all the tasks you need

I think you need to talk with administrator or project manager

he/she can grant the access in the project tab

we have changed the rule recently

and now user can only track time on tasks/ project where he is a member

if you are not, then you won’t see it on the list

User

This you can not do

no sorry, this is managed internallly within team

User

it´s ok

User

thank’s

User

I will talk to him
