2. Click on "+new" to add a new time entry
3. On the time entry form, you can specify information such as how much time was spent, is it billable, additional notes to describe the time spent. Click "Add time" once you have filled this information.
4. The new time entry will be listed on the item along with its billable information. The overall time spent value is also updated based on the new time entry.
