You can create a set of time tracking standard tasks, and then associate it with a certain work code. This way, you can track time against that work code when people enter their time in the time tracking sheet.

To create a time tracking task set:

  1. Select Administration from the left menu bar, and then click Time-Track under Settings.
  2. Under General Time Tracking Settings, click Manage Here next to Create and Manage Time Tracking Standard Tasks.
  3. Type the name in the Task Set Name box, and then click Add.
  4. Type your task in the New Task box, and then type a description of the task, which will also act as a tooltip for this task on the Time Entry page.
  5. If you want to show the task description as a tooltip on the timesheet, turn on the Show Description in Information Dialog on Timesheet option.
  6. Select if this task should be capitalized and billable for contractors, and then click Add.
    Note: If you set the task as capitalized, but the work code this task is assigned to is not set as capitalized (under Time Tracking > Work Codes), all hours reported on this task will be recorded as operating.
  7. Add more tasks if needed.


  • By default, the task is set to Active to appear on the timesheet. You can make a task inactive and it will not appear on the timesheet. Note that if you make a task inactive but it has time entered, it will still show up on the timesheet.
  • The order of the tasks here will determine the order of their appearance on the timesheets.

To edit a time tracking task set:

  1. Select the necessary time tracking task set from the Edit Task Set drop-down menu.
  2. Edit a task, and then click the floppy disk icon next to it to save your changes.

Note: You can move your tasks by clicking the up and down arrows. To delete your task, click the red cross sign next to it.
