Keyboard shortcuts

To make time tracking even quicker, Freckle supports various keyboard shortcuts. Read on to become a Power-Freckler!

Quick Entry box

When the quick entry box is open automatically when you load the page (which is the case on the Dashboard and the Pulse), the Time field is automatically focused. You can log time by using the Tab key to jump between fields (use Shift+Tab to jump backwards). In the Tags or Description field, tab is also used to autocomplete tags. When you're done, just hit Return to log the time entry.

If the time entry was logged successfully, Freckle will automatically be ready to log more time!

Freckle Timer and Freckle Mac App

The Freckle Timer can be completely controlled with just the keyboard, this includes selecting projects, starting, pausing, and logging time, as well as searching for projects:
