1 Landing page
For ease of use focus booster always opens on timesheets after signing in. It opens up the current day upon sign in so you can see exactly what time you logged. Tah dah!

2 Timesheets
Navigate to timesheets from anywhere else on the site. Timesheets are a day by day breakdown of sessions. You can automatically navigate back to today using the 'go to today' link.

3 Clients
Start building your data! Input your clients and their hourly rates and start using the focus booster timer and watch your timesheets populate!

4 Reports
Behind this tab is a dashboard filled with awesome graphs and reports. Analyze your performance and export reports.

This little guy hides a few important menu options. Here they are;

  • Preferences
    Customization! Here you can manage the date format and currency you would like to work in or turn clients and/or revenue on and off.

  • Profile
    Update your name, email or password here. You username always stays the same.
