Hi Vladimir, I spot strange at time tracker behaviour.
I think time tracker make too early snaphoot at first 10 minute. Like I start at 10.03, snapshoot will taken at 10.07.
There is low/not full activity at my (almost) all first 10 minutes snapshoot at my work diary. I'm sure that was on full working at that time.
This inaccurate tracker can make freelance look unprofessional when client check our work diary. I hope Upwork tim can investigate this problem.
Thanks, Tias

 It is not inaccurate. It is working as designed. You don't get a snapshop every ten minutes exactly. You get one snapshot per ten minute interval. When you start working it's best to start your tracker at the beginning of a 10 minute interval. Instead of starting at 10:03, start at 10:00. 

 

I have logged over 3,500 with the time tracker and never had a client question it.
