How do I add a manual time entry?

ZipBooks time tracking is convenient and helps you make sure you’re paid for the hours you spend. But sometimes, you may forget to turn the tracker on or off, resulting in too little, or too much time tracked. ZipBooks makes it easy to manually adjust time entries, or add new ones.

Here’s how:

  1. Log in to ZipBooks and click on Tracking in the menu on the left.
  2. To add a new entry, click the round green + button toward the top right corner of the screen. A New Time Entry screen will appear. 
  3. Enter the User, Project, and Task that apply to the entry.
  4. Enter the number of hours worked, and the Date the work was done.
  5. Add any Notes that you’d like to appear with the entry.
  6. If these hours will be billed to a customer, check the Billed box at the bottom. 
  7. Click the blue Save button.

Your new time entry will now appear in your list of tracked time.

To adjust an existing entry:

  1. Find it in your list of tracked time and click the cog icon on the right side. The Edit Time Entry Window will appear. 
  2. Adjust the time in the Hours box, and any other details, as needed.  
  3. Click the blue Save button.

That’s it! Your changes will appear in the entry on your list.
