Get Started with the Tracker

Congratulations on being the owner of a brand new Tracker. We will help you set up your Tracker together with the Timeular desktop app

Updated over a week ago

What’s in the box?

  1. One beautiful Tracker.

  2. Four different sticker sheets (with icons, abstracts, and colours).

  3. A pencil for writing on your Tracker

  4. A USB-A to USB-C cable to charge your Tracker

  5. The Tracker Base (put your Tracker into the base if you want to stop tracking).

First, download and install the Timeular Software:

  1. Download our software at .

  2. Install and start the software.

  3. Log in with your email and the password or if you don't have one: create a new account by clicking the Register button.

Second, connect your Tracker:

  1. Click on the gear icon to get to Settings > Tracker.

  2. Press on the left side of the black button on your Tracker device. The LED starts blinking blue.

  3. Click on “Pair” in the Timeular software.

  4. Your Tracker is now paired when you see a badge saying "Connected".

Third, create and assign your activities:

Create your own custom activities by first adding a folder using the "+ Add Folder" button on the "Calendar" view. If you'd like to add activities to an existing Folder hover over the folder name and then click the edit (pencil) icon and then click on the "Activities" tab.

  1. Give your Folder a name and click the "Next" button

  2. Once the folder has been created you will be directed to the "Activities" tab where you can type out your activity names and hit Enter or click the check mark to add the activity

3. If you are using the Tracker, you can now assign these activities to the sides of your Tracker. Make sure your Tracker is connected (via the Settings > Tracker 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.

(Note: If you track a time entry for less than 1 minute, the time entry will not be saved.)

4. Now label this side of your Tracker according to the activity that you assigned to it (so that you know later which side belongs to which activity).

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

Use Quicktrack on an empty Tracker side

If you want to track >8 activities you can leave one of the sides of the Tracker un-assigned and use Quicktrack to select an activity and quickly start/stop tracking a time entry.

You can enable this feature in the Settings > Quicktrack area of the Timeular desktop app:

Now, when you flip your Tracker to the empty side the Quicktrack window will pop up and you can select any activity in any folder and begin tracking.

Tip: If you want to track your time in more detail, you can create subprojects or notes to your time entries, click here to learn how.

The meeting scenario: Your Tracker will lose its Bluetooth connection to your PC/mobile device if you are a certain distance away from it. You only need this Bluetooth connection to start tracking with your Tracker, if it is lost after the tracking has begun the Timeular app will continue to track the time entry.

Let’s say you’re about to go to a meeting. You’re at your desk and your Tracker is connected so you flip it over to the Meeting side to begin tracking. You then take your laptop and go to a meeting room down the hall and the Tracker loses its Bluetooth connection to the laptop. The software will keep tracking the Meeting time entry even though the Bluetooth connection to the Tracker itself has been lost.

Once the meeting is over and you return to your desk the Tracker will automatically re-establish the Bluetooth connection to your laptop once it is moved (eg: you can place the Tracker in its base to stop tracking the Meeting time entry, or you can flip the Tracker to a different side to begin tracking a different activity).

Note: The Tracker will go into sleep mode if it's not connected to the software for more than 30 seconds. For example, if you're taking a lunch break and your computer goes into standby mode, the Tracker will lose its connection with the software and will therefore turn itself off to save battery. When you return from your break, simply take the Tracker out of the base to start tracking again. The Tracker will automatically reconnect and start tracking after around 3 seconds. 

Congratulations, you're all set up! Now track all your activities and soon you'll be able to save a lot of time.

At the end of the day, just put your Tracker into the base and it will stop tracking.
