Windows app: Keyboard shortcuts

Here are some hotkeys we’ve included to make tracking time from your Harvest for Windows desktop app quick and easy:

  • To start a new timer, press Ctrl+Alt+N (this is customizable in Settings).
    • You can use this hotkey with any application open.
    • If the timesheet window is already open, you can also press just Ctrl+N.
  • To show/hide the timesheet window, press Ctrl+Alt+H (this is customizable in Settings).
  • To show your favorites, press Ctrl+Alt+F (this is customizable in Settings).
  • To move between days, use the left and right arrow keys.
  • To jump to today’s date, press Ctrl+T.
  • To move between entries, use the up and down arrow keys. The selected entry will be highlighted in gray.
  • To stop a selected timer (or to start one for the entry that’s selected), press Ctrl+S.
  • To edit a selected entry, press the Ctrl+E key.
  • To delete a selected entry, press the Delete key.

You can customize some of the keyboard shortcuts:

  1. Open the timesheet window and click the gear icon in the bottom right.
  2. Select Settings.
  3. Under Shortcuts, type in a new shortcut to the right of each customizable option.

If you decide you don’t want to keep the customizations you entered, click Reset shortcuts.
