  • To start a new timer, press OPT+CMD+N (this is customizable in Preferences).
    • You can use this hotkey with any application open.
    • If the timesheet window is already open, you can also press just CMD+N.
  • To hide/show the timesheet window, press OPT+CMD+T (this is customizable in Preferences).
  • To show the Time Summary, press OPT+CMD+S (this is customizable in Preferences).
  • To show your favorites, press OPT+CMD+F (this is customizable in Preferences).
  • To refresh the timesheet window, press CMD+R.
  • To move between days, use the left and right arrow keys.
  • To jump to today’s date, press the T key.
  • To move between entries, use the up and down arrow keys. The selected entry will be highlighted in gray.
  • To stop a timer (or to start one for the entry that’s selected), press the S key.
  • To edit a selected entry, press the E key.
  • To delete a selected entry, press the delete key.
