So, you’re new to this whole time tracking thing and aren’t sure where to start. Luckily, we’re here to help you hit the ground running with these five quick tips for setting up your Toggl Track workspace faster than you can say coffee break.
#1 Check out our knowledge base.
We like to think Toggl Track is about as user-friendly as time tracking tools come, but we also understand we may be a little biased (especially since we’re constantly using it as part of our own jobs).
To bring things back to the basics, we created an awesome knowledge base full of searchable articles, tips and tricks to help you get the most from your Toggl Track experience.
So go on and dive right in here.
#2 Learn the lingo.
Projects, workspaces, tags, tasks…navigating your way around different software programs can sometimes feel like you’re learning a new language.
Familiarize yourself with the Toggl Track vocabulary and you’ll find it makes it easier when asking for help from the support team and minimizes confusion amongst your own team members as well. Double win!
#3 Determine access rights.
- Do you want your team to see billable rates?
- Should only admins have the option to create projects?
- How about who has admin rights vs. regular user access?
Make it easy on yourself and spend 5 minutes perfecting your team permissions before jumping in and tracking time.
It will help keep things better organized down the road, and prevent your team members from accessing data you may otherwise want to keep between management.
Don’t forget to set your time zone and personal profile data as well.
#4 Utilize CSV import.
If creating projects one at a time sounds like a hassle, take a shortcut and upload a big batch of data to save yourself some time.
Our CSV import feature allows you quickly upload project names, clients, entries and more with the click of a button.
We even have the CSV format all laid out for you in this handy help article to keep it simple.
#5 Get 1 on 1 support.
Our awesome support ninjas are available almost 24/7 to answer your questions. You can also hit us up on social media.
