How to create sub-activities by adding notes and tags

Want to track more than 8 activities? Use notes and tags to easily attribute your time entries to sub-categories.

Updated over a week ago

Do you wish the Tracker had more than sides? If 8 sides are not enough for you or if you simply want to track your projects more granularly, you can easily add tags (#) and mentions (@) or plain-text notes to your entries. These notes/tags then act as searchable sub-categories/sub-activities.

Example: Imagine you’ve been tracking a time entry for the "Development" activity. If you now want to assign this time to a tag you can just add “#mobile" in the notes field of this time entry it will now be assigned to the #mobile tag.

Add a hashtag (#) or mention (@) before your note text to create a tag/mention and they will be saved and shown to you in a drop down menu whenever you start typing # or @.

Tags will also be suggested to you in the folders column, the time entry editor, and the Quicktrack window when you have an active tracking:

Filter and analyze data for projects & sub-projects

On the Insights tab in the software you can filter by dates, activities, notes, tags/mentions, and more in order to analyze your time tracking data.

If you have a Personal Pro or Team subscription you can then easily export this data by clicking on the export icon in the top right corner.

We hope this helps you to get even more out of our software and to get more insights into how you spend your time.
