You can automatically track time for Cases/Opportunities or any other Objects in Salesforce. The special feature allows the Salesforce user to track time for an object from the view page/screen.

To enable this feature, please link the TT User with Salesforce User in the TT User table, click here to know more. Track Time within Salesforce works only if the TT User is linked with their Salesforce User ID.

This feature is usable in Mobile Time Tracker version 1.52 onward. If you are on a lower edition of the Time Tracker, please upgrade the Mobile Time Tracker app to the latest version from the AppExchange.

Once you have the correct version of the Mobile Time Tracker app, please follow the instructions below for enabling automatic time tracking for any object that you want to such as, Opportunity/Project/Case/Account, etc.,
