If icon placement on your screen look a little different than in this video, you could be using a different Workspace layout!

As part of our mission to improve your productivity, ClickUp provides numerous ways for you to track time spent on tasks.

We've set up diverse time tracking integrations with Harvest, Everhour, Toggl, and ClickUp offers its own native time tracking and reporting!

Global Timer

Located under the plus action menu on the bottom right of the screen, you're able to quickly track time to a task or create a new task to track time to.

  • Start and stop time from any computer you are logged in to with full support in the desktop, web app, and Legacy 2.0 mobile app! (Chrome coming soon)

  • Always have the timer visible in Mini Mode so you never forget to stop it when done!

  • Jump between tasks that you are working on with recent time entries by starting a new timer from a previous entry

  • Business+ users get the added benefit of tracking time without the need to link a task first. Start a timer as soon as you start working and add details later!

Time Entry Details

Business+ Users get additional features to make reporting more powerful.

  • Notes: add notes to any time entry for better logging of exactly what was worked on

  • Labels: add labels to time entries to be used across your Workspace for better filtering of similar tracked time

  • Billable: mark time as billable to keep track of time that is intended for invoices and time that's just used for internal reports

Time Reporting

Dashboards in ClickUp include several different widgets to provide a comprehensive reporting that is easy to customize. With the Time Tracking Widgets, you can:

  • See total time each person in your Workspace has tracked

  • Filter by custom time labels and group time entries by different properties

  • View cumulative time tracking logs for each team member for accurate information on how time-consuming a List of tasks has been

  • View time tracked manually and automatically, such as with the ClickUp native tracker, Toggl, and Harvest.

  • Export the data for even more information.

Please note that unlimited uses of Dashboards are only available for Unlimited Plan users and above.

Sorting and Filtering with Time Tracking

Once you've enabled time tracking within a Space, you can utilize this feature to sort and filter your tasks.

Just click on the filter button or select the Time Tracked sorting option from the columns shown above your list of tasks!

Everhour 

Install the Everhour Extension to time work within ClickUp tasks, as well as edit time logged and add time estimates.

The integration offers other exclusive benefits such as flexible reporting and sharing, and a live view so you can be aware of what your teammates are working on at all times.

Time Doctor

Visualize how long it takes your team to complete projects and analyze accurate time data about how work gets done in ClickUp!

Time Doctor can also take screenshots of your employees’ work. This is great for remote employees to ensure accountability.

Toggl

One of the highlights of this integration is that time tracked in Toggl will automatically be synced to ClickUp tasks. Users can start and stop time tracking without leaving ClickUp, and associate time tracked with ClickUp tasks automatically.

Once you've downloaded the Toggl Extension, all you need to do is sync Toggl with ClickUp from your ClickUp Settings. You'll then be all set to start tracking time in your tasks!

Harvest

With Harvest, you have another opportunity to sync time automatically with your ClickUp tasks. As you add time to tasks in ClickUp, your Harvest time tracking sheet will be updated with each entry containing the task title and task ID.
