When you first launch Timeular you'll have the option of selecting an onboarding template which will automatically populate some activities for you depending on which template is selected.

Of if you start from scratch you can create your own custom activities by clicking the "+ Add Activity" button.

  1. To add your own custom activity click the "+ Add Activity" button

  2. Type the activity name and select the colour you'd like to associate with this activity

  3. Hit Enter to create the activity or click on the checkmark  

4. If you are using the Tracker, you can now assign this activity to the side of your Tracker. Make sure your Tracker is connected (via the Settings > Trackers area) and place your Tracker on one of its sides. Click on the "Tracker" tab and click the toggle switch beside the activity name to assign it to your Tracker. 

5. A "Facing Up" label will appear, indicating that you successfully assigned this activity to the side of your Tracker which is currently facing up. 

6. Your first activity will automatically start tracking.

7. Now label or mark this side of your Tracker according to the activity that you assigned to it as in the picture above (so that you know later which side belongs to which activity).

8. Now turn your Tracker to a different side and repeat this process for the other activities that you want to assign. 

9. That's it - you're ready to go!  🎉

Tip: If you're working on more than 8 activities or projects at a time, read here for how to create subprojects.
