What's new in this version of the App?

We've heard your feedback, and aimed to make the App even more user friendly. Further feedback always welcome.

Logging In

Once the App is installed and launched, you will be directed to a login screen. As you would on your computer, enter your Company Name, Username and Password to access the time tracking features.

Track Time to Jobs

Time can be tracked to active Jobs in your FP system using the iOS App. Navigate to the My Jobs tab. Here, you'll see Jobs to which you tracked time in the last 2 weeks.  Click a Job listed to add time to this Job and a related Service bucket.

 

  1. Use the + / - buttons (increments of 15);
  2. Tap the numeric display to manually input numbers;
  3. Or the timer to add time.

Tip: You can use the microphone icon on your phone or watch to speak your Timesheet description, rather than type it in.

Search for Time Trackable Jobs

Don't see the Job to which you need to track time listed? No problem! Begin by clicking the search icon.

 

Start typing into the available search bar and results will begin to populate below. Search for Jobs via:

Job Name
Job Number
Project Name
Company Name
Company Code

Track Time to Tasks

Track Time to Tasks

Choose the My Tasks tab to see all Tasks that have you as the assignee, and that are in the status of Assigned or In Progress. Tasks are arranged by due date. Tap a Task to add time to it.

  1. Use the + / - buttons (increments of 15);
  2. Tap the numeric display to manually input numbers;
  3. Or the timer to add time.

Tip: You can use the microphone icon on your phone or watch to speak your Timesheet description, rather than type it in.

Please Note:

  • Time you track to an Assigned Task will move it to an In Progress status.
  • You can move Tasks assigned to you to a Completed status. Completed Tasks are unavailable for further time tracking.
  • You cannot move Shared Tasks to a Completed status.

Timetracking Offline

Timetracking Offline

If you are offline for any reason (on the subway, on a plane, fighting Smaug) you will have the ability to create a timesheet that will need to be submitted once you're back online.


Storing of Timesheets

Storing of Timesheets

Time you track will save to the Timesheets tab of the App.

  • A total of your hours for the day will appear at the top
  • Tap through the < and > arrows to see past Timesheets, or move forward to present day.
  • Swipe to delete a Timesheet. Note that posted Timesheets cannot be deleted, just as in the main FP system.
  • Click any Timesheet to edit the time or description.

Marking Work as "Favourites"

Marking Work as &quot;Favourites&quot;

As you track time to a combination of a Job or Task and its associated Service (ie. Copywriting, Design, etc) you can choose to mark is as a "Favourite." Combinations you mark this way will appear under their own tab of the App. These combinations will also sync to your Apple Watch, and allow you to track time on that device.

Simply swipe to remove anything from your Favourites list. And just tap to edit, re-arrange the list order, or bulk delete.

Apple Watch

On your Apple Watch, you can currently only track time to things noted as Favourites via the iOS App. If you have no Favourites marked, you won't be able to track time on the watch.
