How timers are structured

Tiller doesn’t have a traditional structure of “Client”, “Project”, “Task”, etc.

Instead, Tiller provides you with the flexibility to work how you want, by using nested timers.

Like the folders in your computer, timers in Tiller can sit inside each other. This allows you to set up timers and reporting in a way that works for you. Some example structures are:

  • Client > Project > Task
  • Task
  • Client > Matter
  • Client > Project > Phase.

Basically, if you can name it, you can use Tiller to track it.

Nested timers can be up to three layers deep, and for the purpose of reporting, time flows upwards.
