In this article, you will learn what task selection options are available and how to configure them to get to your personal task selection the fastest.
1. Options for the selection of tasks
When entering project time, there are different settings and selection modes available for the task selection.
1.1 Tasks selection settings
Open automatically: If this setting is activated, the task selection will be displayed automatically as soon as you start a project time.
Instant Start: If this setting is active, timr will start recording the project time immediately after you select a task.
1.2 Task selection modes
You have the possibility to "favor" tasks. These are displayed in the "Favorite" overview. How to set favorites you will find here.
1.2.2 Recommended & Recent
Under "Suggestions" you will find the tasks you normally do on this day of the week. For example, if there is always a team meeting on Monday morning, timr will show this task as a selection.
In the "Suggestions" overview you will also find the "Recent" listing. This lists recently used tasks based on your last recorded project times.
1.2.3 All tasks
Manually browse all tasks created in timr or assigned to your user. The entire task tree will be displayed hierarchically as a selection.
1.2.4 Open search automatically
If this option is activated, the search function will open when you select a task. You type in the task you are looking for and get a task selection already at the first letter input.
1.2.5 Scan barcode or QR code
You have the option to enter project times by scanning a barcode or QR code. If you activate this option, timr will request access to the camera.
If you now select the task selection, the camera will open. You can scan a code and press "Start" to start the time recording. Continue to the tutorial on how to create a barcode.
A video with an application example how to scan tasks with a barcode can be found here (Language: German).
1.2.6 Location based
Task selection is based on your current location.
2. Configure task selection in the settings
2.1 Central configuration in the web application
If the task selection has been predefined by your administrator, an individual setting is no longer possible.
Information about central configuration by administrators can be found here.
2.2 Configuration in the app
In the app settings, you can configure the task selection according to your needs. To do this, you select which options are available and in which order the relevant views are displayed.
To do so, enter the ... More tab in the timr app and there go to Settings.
Tap on Task Selection.
Now choose which options are available for the task selection and in which order they should be displayed. To change the order, move the relevant option by tapping on the dashes on the left (marker) and then dragging/moving it to your intended place.
Depending on the selection you have made, the task selection in Project Time Recording will show you the corresponding options in the chosen order.
