Yes, Toggl Track has a timer!

With Toggl Track you can switch between Timer mode and Manual mode.

Timer mode is simple to use. Start the timer when you start working on something. Stop the timer when you're done working or switching to a different project.

Starting the timer

Start the timer by hitting the pink play button at the top right corner of the web app or hitting N on your keyboard. You can also start the timer by typing in a description where it says “what are you working on?”.

Mobile app, desktop app, and browser extension

Toggl Track has a mobile app available for iOS and Android so you can track time on the go.

There is a desktop app available for macOS, Windows and Linux.

Also a browser extension available for Chrome and Firefox. These extensions integrate with over 100 apps. You can track time in your browser extension menu or directly within another app.


The hardest thing about timers is forgetting to start/stop them. If you have the desktop app, Toggl will send you a reminder pop up if you are working on your computer and have not started your timer. If you stopped working and left your timer running Toggl will send you an email reminder.
