More than meets the eye—the Quick Entry box!

Here’s how the Quick Entry box makes clever assumptions about your entries so you can save yourself typing and hair-pulling:

You can override the Quick Entry assumptions by using “h” and “m” to indicate hours and minutes.

Behold! A few more Quick Entry tabulation examples.

*Note: these tabulations are for a project with a default billing increment of 15 minutes. Noko will round up those annoying 3-minute tasks for you! If you’ve set your billing increment to “none,” or some other value, your rounding may vary. Adjust your billing increment on the Settings & Tools tab of your Noko dashboard. Play around with the Quick Entry box, and it’ll quickly become your time tracking & billing BFF.
