My Tasks & Timers
The My Tasks view shows all of the tasks that you are currently on (including those you’re pinned to and require your specific input), and is the best place for team members to review and manage their day to day work. You can quickly review your tasks, start stopwatch Timers on any task to track your time, post your time and comments, Pin tasks to teammates, highlight urgent tasks, and upload task related files.

Click the My Tasks icon in the main menu, and all of your Tasks (To Do’s) are listed along with the Project and Organization they belong to, Start and End dates, Last activity, highlighter icon, and the Task Status widget which shows the hours estimated and logged and the % complete for that task.

Enter a description of your activity, then add the hours spent, optionally click the date icon to set a time/date other than today, and set the % complete for the task (This is a subjective measure and tells your project manager how complete you think the task is), and click Save.
