Studiometry's running timers are used to track time while working on a Project.
A running time has a Debt/Credit Type (with a possible default rate), a description, and more information associated with it. Running timers are just extensions of the Debt/Credits that are used to track all Items related to a Project.
Possible ways to start a Running Timer:
- Use the Running Timers Window, click the Start New button and select your Project.
- Select your Project in the Main Window Project list, navigate to the Debt/Credit tab, and click the Plus Button. You would then need to select Hourly (or whichever custom Debt/Credit Type you've made) from the popup menu.
- Mac Only - Setup your Status Item to automatically start a timer when selecting a Project.
Timers can either be Paused, Running or Stopped. When the timer is started, it will start counting up from 00:00:00. When the timer is paused it will remain in the running timers lists, but the visible ran time will revert to 00:00:00 unless your view options are set to show the total time instead of the current interval.
When a timer is started, Studiometry creates a new Time Interval, which can be viewed and edited in the Advanced Info section of the Debt/Credit Editing Window. Studiometry will automatically calculate the total time of all intervals and multiply it by the set rate to produce the total amount for the timer.
If you'd like to enter a custom time amount for a timer, simply click Manually Enter Total Hours in the Debt/Credit Editing Window and enter your desired Total Hours.
