Flic is a wireless smart button that connects to your iPhone or Android phone and can easily be programmed perform tasks when you press it. 

A Flic button has many uses, but the coolest one is that you can use it to log time with Timely – it's probably the quickest way to populate your timesheet!

You can press the Flic button to start and stop a timer ("clock in/out"), or you can add a new timesheet entry to a project, with a predefined amount of time and a note. 

Here's what you need to get started

How to set it up

  1. Download and install the Flic app, and follow the instructions to add your Flic.
  2. Add an action to your Flic, and search for Timely. You'll need to enter your username and password to connect Timely with Flic.
  3. Select the client and project you want the entries to be added to.
  4. Select "Punch clock" or "Log time"
  5. Fill in the Note, Hours (if you choose Log time) and Minutes fields below. Click Add in the top right corner when you're done. 

Tips & Tricks

  • I added the "Punch clock" action for a single click on the Flic, and wrote "Timed with my White Flic" as note, so I can easily identify this entry in Timely later.
  • I mapped the "Log time" action to a double-click on my Flic, and wrote "Logged with my White Flic" as the note. 
  • Get a 4-pack of Flics and bind each different color to a different Timely project. Make sure to make the project color the same as the Flic you bound to it.
