Once a contract has been selected, you'll see (highlighted below in yellow boxes) the time you've completed so far on that contract this week, the limit for how many hours are permitted on the selected contract per week and you'll see a thumbnail of the last screenshot that was taken by the Time Tracking App for the contract.

Enter a description for the task you're going to be working on in the task description box (highlighted in the orange box), then click the "Start" button when you're ready to start working (highlighted in the red box):

You can Start and Stop using the Time Tracking App as often as you need to, however remember that the Time Tracking App must be recording in order for you to be paid for the time you've worked.

Although time recorded manually, without using the Time Tracking App, does not qualify for payment protection, it is possible to add time manually to your Worklog if your client has enabled this option in your contract.

If your client has enabled the manual time option, you should add manual time for any period where you've worked and were unable to use the Time Tracking App (for example due to working away from your computer, an unstable internet connection or due to not meeting the minimum system requirements of the Time Tracking App).

Should you need to add any time you've worked manually, please click here to learn how to add manual time through your Worklog. You can access your Worklog directly through the Time Tracking App by clicking the "Manage Work Diary Online" link:
