Timetracking is an important feature throughout the whole of Teamleader. You’ll always see it returning in the application. Here’s a list of ways to track your time spent!

  • Via our Time Tracker

  • Manually

  • Via a task, call or meeting

  • Via the mobile app

  • Via work orders

Via our Time Tracker

Our Time Tracker functionality is essentially a timer in the top right-hand corner in Teamleader. It allows you to keep an eye on how long you’ve already been working on something at all times. You can very easily start the timer and then stop it when you’re finished. Read all about it in this article!


Quick start menu

  1. When in Teamleader click on the “+” symbol in the upper right-hand corner. Then click “Timetracking”.

  2. Fill in the details.

  3. Click “Save” and the amount of time will be added to your timesheets.


  1. Navigate to “Timesheets”

  2. Click on the “+” symbol next to the word “Timesheets” or click on the “+” next to a specific day

  3. Fill in the details

  4. Click “Save” and the amount of time will be added to your timesheets.

Via a task, call or meeting

A third way to register time you spent is via tasks, calls or meetings you created in advance. The time registered is different for each of these however:

  • Task: when tracking time on a task, the proposed time spent will be the time since you logged in (if it’s the first timetracking of the day) or the time spent since finishing your previous timetracking.
    Note: It's not possible to delete a task when there's already time tracked on it. You have to delete the timetracking in order to delete the task. It will only be possible to delete timetracking when it hasn't been invoiced yet.

  • Call: when you’re calling a contact using one of our Voice-over-IP services, the time spent on the call will automatically be registered to your timesheets. If you finish the call manually, you can enter your spent time yourself.

  • Meeting: when telling Teamleader that a meeting is done, the time proposed will be the previously set duration of the meeting. If you set that the meeting would take an hour when creating it, a timetracking of an hour will be proposed. You can easily overrule this, of course.

Via the mobile app

Our Teamleader mobile app also lets you not only timetrack tasks, calls and meetings from your phone or tablet, it also features the option of start/stop timetracking. How the time is registered depends on what you are doing:

  • Task: you can start timetracking for a task on mobile by clicking through on it to see the details, then click on 'Track time' and you’ll be able to enter the tracked time yourself. You can also run the time tracker and select this task to track time.

  • Call: the mobile app allows you to call straight from your phone. The time you actually spent on the call will be registered to your timesheets.

  • Meeting: when clicking through on a meeting in the app, the same principle applies as it does with tasks. Click on the three dots to either start the automatic time tracking or to enter the time already spent. The duration of the meeting will again be proposed.

  • Time sheets: go to “Time sheets” in the menu and click “start” in the upper right hand corner. The time tracking starts right away.

Via work orders

The work orders feature in Teamleader is our final way to track time. It allows you to go to your customer, track the time and material you spent there and create an invoice out of it. You can find more info on how this feature works in this article.
