Please note that if you activate the Time Tracking in "Settings" > "Options" you will have access to other options.
You will be able to:
1 : Create a 3rd type of activity : Travel
2 : Choose whether you want to consider the activity as payable or not
Travel activities can only be started from the mobile application as they enable you to get a travel's real duration as well as the distances made by technicians during their work days.
For more details on this option check the article "Time Tracking".
IMPORT YOUR ACTIVITES
Synchroteam also allows you to import your activities.
To do so go to “Settings” (1) > “Import / Export” (2), click on “Import Activities” (3), then “Upload”, select your csv. file, click on “Preview” and proceed with the mapping of your fields (4) before importing your file (5).
Your file must contain at least the activity name and the start and end date.
If you leave the technician and group fields empty, then the activity will be scheduled for all technicians.
