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:

User

User

thank you

User

`*set

Sure 🙂

first you need to log in to the system- set up the account

Then invite the users: https://www.timecamp.com/kb/groups-and-users-management-basics/

Create projects and assign people to them https://www.timecamp.com/kb/projects-basics/

and simply start tracking the time

They can download mobile app- both on android and IOS – and start to log their time, via timesheet
