The total time tracked for a task will be displayed next to the timer icon in the task dialog.

How to Edit Time Slips

Every time you start recording, a new time slip will be created. To view or edit your time slips, open the task dialog and click on the total time tracked. You'll see a simple diagram that visualizes your tracked time within the last week, and below that a list of all users who've tracked time on this task, along with their overall tracked time.

Click on one of the entries to see a list of the person's individual time slips. Note that you can view everybody's time slips, but edit only your own.

Click on one of your time slips to modify it. You can enter the number of hours you've worked, or enter the start and end time in the From and Until fields. Below that you can also set a different date. 

When you're done modifying, click Save
