The Time Tracking Lightning Component

The Time Tracking lightning component allows a resource to view their active assignments and quickly record actuals and take notes. The component can be added on the Home tab, resource detail page, object detail pages that are configured to work with Resource Hero, such as Opportunities, Cases, Projects, and almost any other standard or custom object. The component can also be added to the Salesforce mobile app.

Note:  This feature is only available for Lightning Experience and is built using Aura Lightning Components.  As such, you must have My Domains enabled in your Salesforce org to use Record Time Tracking. For details, view the Prerequisite – My Domain support post.
