*mite*cherishes flexibility, and thus supports a variety of notations to track your time. Hours:minutes is the default syntax, but

*mite*understands a whole lot more.

## Hours

1:30 (hours:minutes) or

1.5 (with a period) or

1,5 (with a comma)

for 1 hour and 30 minutes.

0:00 or a blank field

for a time entry with a running timer.

## Time frame

8 to 13:30 or

8 13:30 or

0800 1330 (four-digit) or

8am 1:30pm

for a time frame from 8:00 to 13:30.

*mite* will calculate the hours and save the specified starting time and ending time as a note.

0:00* or *

for a time entry with a running timer with a time range as a note. The starting time is the current time; The ending time will increment automatically as long as the timer is ticking.

If you append an asterisk to any input in the field »hours«, *mite* will add the time range as a note. Thus, you can combine time ranges with hours and basic arithmetic operations: e.g., enter 0:10* if you worked from 10 minutes earlier until now.

## Timer quickstart

2:00+

for a two-hour time entry with a running timer.

If you append a plus sign to any input in the field »hours«, *mite* will start the timer. Thus, you can combine the timer quickstart with hours, time ranges, and basic arithmetic operations.

## Basic arithmetic operations

2+0:15 or 2-0:15

for 2 hours plus or minus 15 minutes.

2*1.5 or 2/1.5

for 2 hours multiplied or divided by 1.5.
