After you've created your timr account successfully, you are directly connected to the timr App and you can immediately start tracking your time. To start as quick as possible you'll find predefined Working Time Types (Office time and Business trip), predefined Tasks (Costumer A > Project 1 > Task) and a predefined car (ExampleCar - Plate). You can edit or delete this default data at any time in the web application. The mobile administration is limited to keep the app as easy to use as possible. You can handle the main part of the administration easily in the web application on your PC.
If you already have a timr account, you see instead of the predefined default data, your own data.
