The intelligent quick entry saves a lot of time. You can use it on projects, tasks and timestamps.

Why intelligent?

Xpert-Timer interprets you entries and tries to understand what you are doing. Here are some examples:

tog_minus        Intelligent quick entry for projects


Enter the name of the project you want to enter. Check the box for creating a main project, otherwise, Xpert-Timer will use the marked project in the project list as your main project and create a subproject for it. The small preview window will tell you exaclty, where Xpert-Timer will create the new project.


In order to create a new main project you must check the box "New main project".

Xpert-Timer will always create the timestamp to the marked project in the project list. So make sure you've selected the correct project.

10:00 - 11:00

From 10:00 Uhr 'til 11:25 Uhr

If you only enter a comment in the quick entry line, then the currect chosen project in the project list will be started when hitting the enter button. This way you can directly enter a comment to your timestamp.

In your task list the quick entry links your new tasks to the project you've marked in your project list.


When entering the data you can for example use:


Due date of the task: tomorrow


Due date of the task on 01.04.2012
