Overlapping Time

Does Clockify have a feature or at least have a warning that indicates if you have logged an overlapping time? Whether it is on the same task or different task.


Hi Aurea!

Clockify does allow overlapping entries and there is no option to disable it.

If it did not allow overlapping, the system would have to prevent the user from adding time if there is already some time tracked in that period or it would have to automatically deal with overlapping time.

For technical and optimization reasons, there are no plans to prevent overlapping time.

However, if you have entries with overlapping start and end times, it is possible to find them in Excel or Google Sheets. You can see more about it here.

I am a new Clockify user and finding it difficult to account for overlapping time entries for calculating payroll hours. I have seen your Google Sheets tips and tricks page but it seems overly complicated and the downloaded example dows not contain all of the formulas. How are others using Clockify for payroll and accounting for overlapping time entries? It would be handy to have overlapping time entries higjhlighted in the ‘Time Audit’ function.

@ladidah If you find the GSheets solution too complicated you could perhaps use the Calendar function to find overlapping time entries.

I just subscribed to a plan because of the time audit feature, just to find out that overlapping time audit is not supported. This is a must-have.
