New on Toggl: Timeline

We have launched the first version of Toggl Timeline, it:

  • Helps you track time more accurately by logging your activities;
  • Represents your daily computer usage in 15min chunks

Timeline blog

To use the Timeline:

  1. Log in to Toggl web
  2. Enable Timeline (click here for detailed instructions)
  3. Open and log in to Toggl Desktop on your computer (click here for the latest version)

When Toggl Desktop is running, ‘events’ will be recorded on your timeline.

Why do we like it?

  • When we forget to start the timer, we can hover over the blue bars and see when we started our work and even what it was that we were doing.
  • The dark blue bars show us what part of the day we have covered with time entries for a quick glance at where any gaps are.


  • Everything on your Timeline is private and visible only to you
  • Every day’s info gets stored for 9 days and then deleted off the system
  • It is not displayed anywhere in Reports (yet – ideas are welcome!)

There’s definitely much more that we can do with this – feel free to share your ideas and thoughts on how to make it even better for you! 😉

  1. […] Timeline – to help you privately (no one else can see it anywhere) keep track of your day and application usage. […]

  2. Since Timeline works with the desktop app, you could track your time through another device to not see your logged time on the Timeline. All the information about Timeline is available in our Support Center (

    If you have any issues – Timeline stopped working etc, then usually logging out and logging in again to your desktop app should make it work (in few minutes).

    If you have any other issues related to that, please contact us to support(at)toggl(dot)com Thanks! 🙂

  3. I’d love to be able to view my entries (entered normally) as a timeline without needing to use the automatic logging feature. Is that possible?

  4. Thanks for bringing our attention to this! We recently changed our Knowledge Base location and it messed up these links. Sorry about that, it’s fixed now! 🙂

  5. Worked fine for a few days, but since then just shows an empty timeline with “Not activity for “. Would definitely appreciate the feature.

  6. Timeline stability has been much improved since the first week of February, and we are continually working on making it better and better. Thank you, everyone, for your continued input!
