      • To start the timer, select the desired project/task* from the drop down lists and click the 'Start' button.
      • To stop the timer when you're done, click the 'Stop' button to save the time entry to the Klok Cloud.

Quick Launch & Display Tip: You can quickly launch Klok Mobile Beta like a true 'native' mobile app by 'adding' or 'pinning' the Klok Mobile website browser application to the home screen of your mobile device. 'Adding or 'pinning' the Klok mobile solution to your mobile device home screen will also display the mobile solution without the web browser frame so it appears and behalves like a true native mobile app. The links below contain steps to quickly 'add' or 'pin' a quick launch icon to your home screen.

    - Android Phones/Tablets: Pin-a-Website-to-Android-Home-Screen


* Note: Any project/sub-project/task etc. configured to not allow time to be tracked against it directly will be reflected as a red circle with a white square overlaying the project folder in Klok Pro and appear as an asterisk to the right of the project name in Klok Mobile Beta. In each of the attached screen shots below, the 'Klokwork' top-level project provides an example to show how projects with this configuration will appear.
