Transmitted or Queued Data

To see the current state of transmitted data to Server, select the Tab from tabbedPane:


Running the Personal Edition ?

There’s nothing to transmit yet:


Running the Group Edition ?



Running the Enterprise Edition ?

Content of this Page depends on the way how you’re synchronizing your transmitted data: manually, every day, every week, …

The Upload Page tells you about the last sync done and next one scheduled.

Starting with Enterprise Edition your first steps probably will be to try it  out for FREE: there’s a 30 Day Test Account available from CoMo Solution.

To make it simple and easy to understand and follow the workflow using the Test Account you have to start transmission of tracked data manually.

Here’s the Upload Page for Test Accounts:


There’s a DropDown to select the Date: all Open Tracked Data including the selected Date will be transmitted to Server. While doing your first tests it could make sense to switch Logging ON – this will give you a short protocol what happened. We’ll take a look on this later.

The ActionBar provides 3 ActionItems:

  • Network gives you some informations on Network State
  • Send Now will select all open records until selected Date and send to the Server
  • Admin opens the Browser and gives you access to TimeTracker Server Web Portal. Attention: you need username / password credentials !

Info on Network State opens a Dialog:


Please take a look at the TitleBar: the Icons also tell you about Network State. More info on Dynamic TitleBars here.


Tapping on “Send Now” Action will

  1. select the data from open records
  2. add data to the Queue
  3. mark data as transmitted

From List of Open Tracked Data you can see which data already was transmitted: transmitted rows are ‘dimmed


You can take a look at the Queue tapping on the Tab:


The ‘Queue‘ tab is only visible if you’re using the Enterprise Edition !

Normaly TimeTracker will transmit the data faster then switching to the Queue Tab, so it’s OK if there’s nothing inside the Queue:


It’s always a good idea to try out what happens if there’s no internet connection. Easiest way to test: Set your Device to ‘Airplane Mode‘ , switch ‘Logging‘ ON and Tap on ‘Send Now


Watch the TitleBar: No Network, No Internet

We got a Toast telling us that 3 Records are transmitted and immediately we got a Logging entry: ‘Cannot transmit to Server’

Looking at the List of Open Tracked Data you’ll see: all are dimmed – all is marked as transmitted:


In reality the data was not sent to the Server because of missing network connection. Now there’s an entry in your Queue:


The Queue can contain different kind of data: ‘Tracked Data’ as seen above, Signature Files, Customer Reports, Accounting Reports. There are different Icons to see what kind of Data is waiting for transmission. All Actions trying to access your server will go into the Queue and sent to server step-by-step if network connection comes back. (FIFO – First-In-First-Out)

Tapping on a row opens a details Page:


Server Action describes the type of data.

Messages: an Array of Server Messages: in this case telling you that there’s no connection. There could be other cases where you get HTTP Status Errors or so if something is wrong from Server. TimeTracker then will try again after 500 ms if there’s an Internet Connection.

JSON Data contains the Payload. You can do a long-press, select all and copy and send via email to your Admin.

Hint: In Test Mode this is always possible – otherwise there’s a property in settings if this is allowed or not – so maybe the Payload is invisible for users.


Below the Payload there’s the Creation Timestamp and your Device PIN, userID and Transmission UUID.

Switch ‘Airplane Mode’ OFF and automagically the entry disappears from Queue and Logging shows success:


Tap on ‘Admin‘ to Open the TimeTracker Server. (You need Username/Password)

Here are the 3 transmitted records:


You can tap on a row to see the Details. This is the ‘User’ Details View – there’s also a special ‘Admin’ Details View where you can see and edit all properties.


Besides the TimeLog properties you’ll see Contact info (if a Contact was selected from your Device) and also all Geo Locations with Coordinates and Address from Reverse Geocoding. From GeoCoding DropDown you can select a specific location – this one will be marked green inside the embedded Map.

You can also see the Locations on a large fullscreen map:


Normally you will use the Server Webportal from your Desktop or Laptop, but I integrated the direct access into TimeTracker to enable this while you’re on-the-road. More Info on the Server Webportal can be found here (TBD)

To open the Browser from inside TimeTracker I’m using the Cascades Invokation Framework as usual. (See also chapter ‘Deep Integration‘)

Here’s the ActionItem (QML Code)

ActionItem {
    title: qsTr("Admin")
    imageSource: "asset:///images/server.png"
    ActionBar.placement: ActionBarPlacement.OnBar
    onTriggered: {
        app.invokeBrowser(REST.serverUrl() + "/TimeTrackerAdmin/")

We’re asking the Server Class (C++ – mapped as ‘REST’) for the serverUrl from settings, then calling the method to invoke the Browser (C++)

void ApplicationUI::invokeBrowser(const QString& uri) {
    InvokeRequest request;

Have Fun with TimeTracker Enterprise Edition and TimeTracker Server by CoMo.
