Since most people struggle with how to input dates and times into Excel, this template contains a macro to input those for you. Just click on the cells in columns A, C and D and the template will populate the cell with the current time and date.

To use the Time Tracking Template:

  1. Click on the cell in column A to populate the current date.
  2. Click on the cell in column C when the process starts to populate the date and time.
  3. Click on the cell in column D when the process stops to populate the date and time.
  4. Populate columns B, E and F with other information about each event.
  5. Column G is calculated as the difference between the start and stop time (columns C and D).
  6. Column H converts column G into minutes. This conversion is usually necessary to run charts.
  7. Select the data in column H to run a chart.
  8. To edit dates or times in columns A, C and D, click on the cell you want to edit and make changes in Excel's formula bar window.
