How does it work?

Just add an event on Google Calendar:

The event will be automatically added to your daily Suggested Entries – Timeneye syncs events from Google Calendar every 10 minutes.

Timeneye automatically assigns the suggested Google Calendar entry to the equivalent project in Timeneye: make sure to add the project name to the event’s title on Google Calendar (for example: “Skype call with DNA Consulting”).

In the Suggested Entry, you can select a Phase for the entry, edit the total time spent on it or ignore the suggestion.

N.B. Adding a “Meetings” phase to your projects will make monitoring weekly and monthly time spent on meetings extremely easy.
