Impulses are a quick and effective way to register new time records by selecting tasks or projects that you either have created or have previously worked on. This feature may save you a lot of time by automatically filling in previously stored information on your new time records.

When creating a new time record through the Impulses, the time record’s information will be either copied from:

  • Previously submitted time records (named the Timeline section)

OR

  • Projects which you are member of and their related tasks (named Tasks or Assignments section depending on your predefined Impulses settings).

You can define which type of Impulses you want to be shown by accessing the Time Tracking Settings → Impulses - see the "Related Articles" section at the end of this article.
