You can import time details that you have tracked outside of 7pace Timetracker, on your personal "Times Explorer" page. To import, you simply copy data from the source application (like Excel) and paste it into the "Import Times" popup window. You then associate each time detail to the specific field in the Timetracker database. Once successfully verified, your imported time details are stored in the Timetracker database. If Timetracker finds any errors during, the import process will stop and the errors will be displayed for you to correct before attempting the process again. For more information on valid fields in Timetracker, see the "Columns" section of "Times Explorer" (Personal Data Only) Page Overview.
