Favorite entries

Impatient to start working on your favorite tasks? Favorite entry feature allows you to do just that - quickly start working on your most important and most frequent tasks.

What is a favorite entry feature?

The favorite entry feature allows you to save recorded entries as favorites, so you can quickly start working on the same tasks again.

Favorited entries appear just below the tracker’s description field, where you can run a timer on them with the same information - description, project, client, billability, and tags.

What are the benefits of using the favorite entry feature?

Using the favorite entry feature improves daily workflows, allowing quick access to:

  • priority tasks - quickly starting the work on the most important or urgent tasks
  • regular daily tasks - keeping an overview of routine tasks throughout the day
  • task switching - facilitating easy switching between tasks and shifting focus

It also helps with:

  • routine building - involving new tasks in already established routine is easier with favorited entries as reminders to build new habits and work on new tasks
  • cognitive load - reducing the cognitive load on employees by relying on pre-defined favorited tasks
  • minimizing distractions - allowing employees to quickly direct their attention towards the most important tasks
