Creating and editing timers

In Tiller, Timers can be created in two ways:

1/ Quick Create

Any time your timers list is visible, simply start typing. Your timers will filter automatically, and if there isn’t a matching timer, you can simply press ‘Enter’ to create a timer.

To create nested timers, simply press Tab.

2/ Detailed Edit

In the timers screen, use your mouse to press the small ‘Edit’ icon. The timers list will transition into an editing state, which allows you to:

  1. Create a new timer
  2. Drag timers to create nested timers
  3. Delete a timer (and it’s children, if it has any)
  4. Adjust the visibility in the timer list
  5. Adjust the billable status (updating a timer’s billable status also updates the child timers to match, however updating a child timer’s billable status does not affect the parent’s billable status)
  6. Add a child timer
  7. Update the timer colour (updating a timer’s colour also updates the child timers to match, however updating a child timer’s colour does not effect the parent’s colour)

When you’re finished editing your timers, use your mouse to click the “Save” button and you’re finished!
