Logging-in #

To start tacking time on the app, you’ll first need to login to your Clockify account by:

  • using the email and password of your Clockify account
  • or by tapping “Continue with Google” button if you’ve associated your Clockify account with your Google account

If you don’t have a Clockify account yet, you can create it by clicking the “Sign up” button in the upper right corner.

Self-hosted users (Server plan) using a custom domain or users with an Enterprise plan with a subdomain can also use the Android app. To sign in open the app and:

  1. Find the “Custom domain” (Self-hosted) or “Sub domain” (Enterprise) link at the bottom of the app screen
  2. Enter your server address or subdomain and click Submit
  3. Log in with your e-mail and password or SSO (Single sign-on)

Once you’ve logged in, you’ll be on the Time Tracker screen, where you’ll see your most recent time entries.

Time tracking #

It is possible to track your time in Clockify Android app in two different ways, either by using a timer or adding time manually.

Timer mode #

To start a timer:

  1. Tap “+” button in the lower right corner and a time entry screen will appear
  2. Tap the “Play” button on the bottom right corner to begin working
  3. Fill the details (description, project, task, billability, tags)
  4. Tap the “Stop” button to stop the timer and save the time entry or the “Discard” option in the upper right corner to discard the time entry

Add time manually #

To manually add a time entry:

  1. Tap “+” button in the bottom right corner
  2. Scroll or type in the time to set the duration of the time entry OR
  3. Tapon the start/end option on the top left corner to specify start/end time, and date
  4. Fill the details (description, project, task, billability, tags)
  5. Tap the “Save” button to save the time entry or the “Discard” button in the upper right corner to discard the time entry

Tip: You can type in the time if you tap the numbers on the scroller rather than scrolling through the numbers to get to the hour you need.

Editing a time entry #

To edit a time entry simply click on the entry itself and an Edit time entry screen will appear where you can:

  • Edit start and end time, as well as the date by tapping the “Start/End” option in the upper left corner 
  • Select task and project (plus create projects and tasks from within the app)
  • Edit time description
  • Mark time entry as billable
  • Add/remove tags (plus create them)

On the Time tracker screen, when you tap the three little dots in the time entry card you’ll find more options:

  • Continue that time entry
  • Duplicate that time entry
  • Access the edit time entry screen and edit the time entry details
  • Delete the time entry

You can also continue a previous time entry from the Time tracker list by tapping the “play” button on the time entry (just below the three little dots). Note that this will start a new timer with the exact same details as the entry where you tapped the “play” button.

To find the app’s menu tap on the three horizontal lines located in the upper left corner. In this menu you can:

  • Switch Workspace
  • Go to Projects (add new projects, edit existing projects, create clients and tasks)
  • Go to Settings (set default project, and enable dark mode)
  • Visit the Dashboard on the Web
  • Log out

Create projects, clients, and tags #

Regular (non-admin) team members are not able to create projects, tasks, and tags if they are not granted these permissions. To give them such permissions, you will need to log in via Web browser and in the Workspace settings set “Who can create projects and clients”, “Who can create tasks” and “Who can create tags” to Everyone.

Adding a new project #

  1. Tap on three horizontal lines on the upper left corner to open the sidebar menu and select  Projects
  2. Tap the “+” button on the bottom right corner
  3. Name the project
  4. Set it as billable/non-billable, public/private, select a client, and change the color
  5. Tap “Save” button to create a project

Adding a new client #

A new client can only be created while creating a new project. 

  1. Open the sidebar and select Projects, then tap “+” button to add a project
  2. Tap on “Client” option within the project section
  3. Tap the “+” button in the bottom right corner 
  4. Name the client and tap “Add” to add a new client

You can simply cancel the project creation at this point by tapping the back button on your phone if you just want to add a new client without creating a project.

Adding a new tag: #

A new tag can only be created while creating/editing a time entry.

  1. Tap a time entry from the list to edit an existing or “+” button to create a new time entry
  2. Select “Tags” option
  3. Tap “+” button on the bottom right corner
  4. Name the tag and tap “Add” to create a new tag

Here you can also rename existing tags by tapping on the three dots next to the tag.

You can simply discard the time entry at this point by tapping the back button on your phone if you just want to add a new tag without creating a time entry.

Settings #

Tap the three horizontal lines located in the upper left-hand corner and select Settings where you can:

  • Set a default project
  • Enable dark mode

Default project #

If you continuously work on the same project, you can set a default project in the app’s Settings. Then when you start the timer or add a time entry, the project will be selected automatically.

You can select:

  • A fixed project, which will be always used when you start a timer for an entry without a project (until you change the default project)
  • Or select “Last used project”, and the timer will pick up the most recently used available project from your list of time entries

Note: if “Default project” is enabled, you won’t be able to have a time entry without a project assigned. Also, if you edit a previous entry that’s without a project, the app will automatically assign it to a default project.

Offline mode #

You can track time in Clockify on your Android even offline.

You can create time entries manually or start/stop the timer. Entries made while offline will be saved locally on your phone. Once you get back online, they’ll get synced with your web account automatically.

When you’re offline, you will only be able to see information loaded while you were online (time entries, projects, tasks, tags, etc.). So projects, tasks, and tags are available for selection if they were loaded before you went offline.

It’s not possible to create new projects, tasks, tags, and clients while offline.
