Time entries

All your tracked time entries of the current week appear in the Calendar tab. Time entries can be created by either:

  • Tracking manually by clicking the play button beside an activity.
  • Tracking with your Tracker by flipping it onto a side with an assigned activity.
  • Clicking on the week view, holding down your mouse button and dragging.
  • Single-clicking inside the week view.

Size of time entries

Time entries always try to show as much information as possible.
If a time entry is very small, only the activity colour and activity name will be shown.. You can see more details by hovering your mouse over this time entry.
If a time entry is small, the activity name is shown as well as the time entry duration. Also here you can get additional information by hovering your mouse pointer over the time entry.
Bigger time entries also show the duration and (if there is any) the notes for this time entry.

How to edit time entries

You can start editing a time entry by clicking on it. After clicking on it, the edit pop-up will open. In the edit pop-up, you can edit every aspect of a time entry.
If you only want to edit the start or end time of a time entry, you can simply do this by dragging the top or bottom of a time entry.
You can drag and drop to arrange time entries by clicking on them, leaving the mouse button pressed and then moving them to the desired destination.

Copying and pasting time entries

If you find yourself frequently needing to enter the same time entry repeatedly, like a recurring meeting for example, you can copy and paste a time entry by holding the OPTION button on a Mac or the CTRL button on windows and then clicking and dragging the time entry to the desired location in the Calendar. All the time entry information, including any notes, will be retained.

How to edit currently tracking time entry

The start time of your current tracking time entry can be edited by dragging it or by clicking the time entry and manually editing the start date/time. Other details like the activity, can be edited by clicking on the current tracking time entry.


When creating a time entry via dragging or manipulating the start or end time of a time entry via drag, we’ve implemented a system to assist you. The dragged part will always either snap to one of the grid lines or to the next time entry. The grid lines are dependent on the current zoom level. The further you zoom in, the finer the granularity of them.


A fundamental concept of the Timeular application is that there can only be one time entry for a given timeframe. So when you manipulate a time entry, so it overlaps with another one, a conflict will be shown. If a change causes a conflict, the change cannot be saved, until the conflict is resolved.
