The Timers were built with busy lawyers in mind. To start, make sure the collapsible screen to the right is opened by clicking on the arrow.
Choose the Matter you wish to work on, then hit the play button to start the timer.
Feel free to continue to move about Zola; it will stay running until you either pause it, save it by selecting the check mark, or cancel the Timer by selecting the X.
Stopping the Timer will bring you to the New Time Entry window, where you can enter the Recording Type, Work Type, Rate and Description. Zola will automatically enter the rest.
