A tracker is a Tempo stopwatch that can be used to record time spent working on an issue. Once started, it continues to record time until it is paused. After you've completed your work, you can quickly log your time against your work by stopping the tracker. The tracker then pre-populates the Log Time form with the time spent, making it easy to enter your time accurately.
There are two ways to access the Tempo tracker:
A. On the Tempo menu, select Tracker. The tracker appears collapsed at the bottom-right.
B. You can also start tracking time directly in an issue. Open the desired issue, and then select Start Tracker on the More menu. The tracker clock starts running at the bottom-right.
Starting and Stopping the Tracker
Start and stop your tracker using the controls on your tracker. To start tracking time, click the Start button. Once the tracker has started, a timer is displayed showing the elapsed time.
You can click
to expand the Tracker Bar for more details.
Use the Pause and Start buttons to stop and restart the tracker.
When you have finished work on the issue, click the Stop button. The Log Time form opens, with the Start Time, End Time,and Total Time automatically recorded from the tracker. Once the worklog has been submitted, the tracker goes back to its initial state.
Clearing the Tracker
To escape or clear the tracker bar without logging work, click the close button X to the right in the bar. If the tracker has been running, a confirmation window will be displayed. Click Confirm to clear the tracker or Cancel to continue tracking your time.
