Using shortcuts in the Quick Entry box
The Quick Entry box is designed to make clever assumptions about your time entries, so you can save yourself from extra typing and hair pulling.
- Enter "15", and Freckle logs 15 minutes
- Enter "1", and Freckle logs 1 hour
- Enter "1 day", and Freckle logs 8 hours
You can override the Quick Entry assumptions by using "m" and "h" to indicate minutes and hours.
But Behold! There are many other ways to enter your time in the Quick Entry box. Perhaps most importantly, you can specify a date as well, so you don't have to grab your mouse and use the calendar (although it's a pretty calendar).

This table assumes that the selected project (or account default value) for billing increments is 15 minutes. When you switch to a different project and the billing increment changes, Freckle will adjust the value accordingly.
