  • The Stopwatch Icon () in the top-right corner of the navigation bar will always be visible when you do not have any timers running. Tapping the Stopwatch Icon displays a pop-up message with a prompt to start a timer. With a timer running, you can access other areas of the application by tapping Back.


  • On the Work Orders list page, any work orders with an active timer will appear at the top of the list, highlighted in green displaying an In Progress status. If you view any work order other than the one with a running timer, the option to begin a new timer will not display.

  • When a timer is stopped​, a labor entry is automatically created.

  • To view all entries, navigate to Labor > Labor Log. If you need to make an adjustment and have permission to do so, tap on the entry name.
