Resource Specific Timers
You can add and edit the active timer for each resource that is linked to an activity. The first step to using this feature is turning the Resource Specific Timer on in your settings page.
Once you have activated your Resource Specific Timers, you can:
- Add new Staff or Machines at any point during activity
- Pause linked Staff or Machines
- Move the timer of a linked Staff or Machines forward or backward while the activity is ongoing
There are countless scenarios where resource specific timers come in handy for accurate resource tracking. When your staff is multi-tasking or you are using multiple machines, you can now easily save detailed records for each resource that is linked to your activity.
