MyCase has up to five built in timers for tracking the amount of time you spend on various activities, and can submit a time entry for them.
Near the top right corner of the screen, you will notice a yellow button labeled Start Timer.
Click on Start Timer to begin tracking your time. Once the timer starts counting, you can add the Case Link and an optional Description for the time entry:
You then have the option to:
Pause: Pauses the timer. You can then resume tracking your time whenever you'd like.
Pause & Save: Stops the timer and opens a new time entry window (with the Case, Description, Rate, and Duration pre-populated based on the time you just tracked).
Pause & Delete: Stops the timer and opens a dialogue box confirming you want to delete the timer, or to cancel that action:
Start New Timer: Pauses your current timer and starts a new timer running. There is a maximum of 5 timers. Only one can be running at a time.
Timer Tab Header
The Timer Tab Header will indicate the number of active timers. If a timer is running, it will show a green dot and also display the duration of the active timer:
If you have any paused timers yet none are running, it will show a red dot along with the number of paused timers:
What happens if you log out?
If you log out of your MyCase account with a timer running, a dialogue box will appear reminding you of that running timer and confirming your log out:
If you close out of your browser or are automatically logged out of MyCase, the timer will be automatically paused for you.
You can move from page to page within MyCase while your timer is running and not lose your time. The timer will always stay displayed in the top right corner of the screen.
