Overview

The Timelog view shows timelog entries for all tasks and subtasks within a particular folder, project, or space. When you view the timelog for a particular folder, project, or space, you see entries added to all tasks and subtasks directly from within that folder, project, or space and from all descendant subfolders and subprojects as well. You can use filters to narrow down the information you see.

Navigate the View

Open the View

  1. Select a folder, project, or space from the workspace’s left navigation panel.
  2. Switch to the Timelog view. You may need to click “More” first.

Each timelog entry appears as its own row on the view, and, by default, entries are grouped by user and date.

The Timelog table contains the following columns:

  • Task Title - The name of the task associated with the time entry
  • User - The name of the person who made the time entry
  • Date - The date of the timelog entry
  • Time Spent - The amount of time worked
  • Project or Folder - The list of projects and folders the task is tagged in
  • Category
  • Comment
  • Billing Type*
  • Lock* - The lock icon in this column indicates that the entry is locked and can’t be edited
  • Export** - The export status of the time entry

* This column is available in accounts with Wrike for Professional Services package and Wrike Resource add-on.
** This column is only available in Wrike for Professional Services Performance package.

Sort Columns

Sort data in columns in ascending or descending order.
To do this, click the column title to apply ascending sorting. Click the same title again to apply descending sorting.
