Three options are available in this dropdown. Use time to track work time only. Use projects if you need to track time by projects. Use projects and tasks if you need additional breakdown by tasks.

Tracking Time Only

This is the simplest time tracking mode. You track work hours only. There is no concept of projects or tasks. This mode can be used where punch-in / punch-out machines are used. In this tracking mode, each time record has either a duration (as on the screenshot below), or a start and finish times. Use the Record type selector on Team Profile page to switch between duration and start / finish.

Tracking Time by Projects

In this scenario, work time is logged against projects that you define on the Projects page in Time Tracker. For example, if you have Project A and Project B, one could log 2 hours against Project A, and 1.5 hours against Project B.

Tracking Time by Projects and Tasks

In this scenario, in addition to projects we also have tasks. As a result, each time entry is logged against a specific project and a specific task. In the example below, 2 hours are spent while coding for Project A, and 1.5 hours on debugging for Project B. You can have multiple tasks allocated to each project.
