Basically, to get started with actiTIME, you need to create tasks, add them to your timesheet, and start tracking time. See more details on the initial setup in our User Guide. actiTIME allows you to track time from the web application, actiTIME Mobile app, and actiTIME Timer extension for Google Chrome.
To access actiTIME, a user needs login, password, and URL of actiTIME installation. For actiTIME Online, necessary login details (login and account activation link) are provided in the invitation email. The URL for access to actiTIME has the following format: http://<IP>:<port> where: IP is the IP address of the computer where actiTIME is installed; Port is the port number of actiTIME installation. If you installed actiTIME from an Auto package (.exe file), you specified it during the installation, and this URL opens when you start actiTIME. For Custom packages (.zip or .tar.gz), it is 8080.
Make sure that this URL does NOT contain ‘localhost’ or ‘127.0.0.1’. If it does, replace it with the IP address of the computer where actiTIME is installed. To find out the IP address:
- Start Command Prompt (Start menu >> All Programs >> Accessories >> Command Prompt or start "Run" dialog box >> type "cmd" and press Enter).
- Enter the command "ipconfig" in the Command Prompt and press Enter.
- In the "IPv4 Address" line, you'll see the IP address of your computer.

No problem! You can free up some user seats, if there are users who stopped using the system, or purchase additional accounts. To free up a user account, just disable one of the accounts you don’t need anymore. Open the Users interface, click on the user’s name, and in the User Account Settings box, turn OFF user’s access to actiTIME. If there are no users whose accounts you can disable, purchase additional accounts. This can be done from the Settings → Licenses menu: click on the Add User Accounts button and proceed with the purchase.
