This page applies to Time2Track institutional administrators.

Welcome to Time2Track!

Time2Track is a tool used for tracking, verifying, and managing experiences. Individuals, including trainees, interns, postgraduates, and professionals, use Time2Track to track the details of these experiences. Individuals then submit these experiences to their supervisors and faculty members for approval. Organizations, graduate programs, and training sites can monitor their trainees' progress, track Online Approval requests, and generate training reports.

Onboarding Process

The onboarding process includes a sequence of pre-onboarding tasks that are initiated and completed by you, followed by 3 phases where you work in conjunction with an account manager. Any item listed as required must be completed for Time2Track to work. Items marked as optional are features you can elect to use depending on your program’s needs. As you work through each step, reference our frequently asked questions or reach out to your account manager for assistance.

Timer 1.pngTimeframe for Completing Account Setup:
Given your day-to-day work responsibilities, how long it takes you to complete the pre-onboarding steps can vary. Once pre-onboarding is completed, it's likely you'll need an additional 2-4 weeks to complete the final 3 phases of onboarding. Be sure to dedicate some time each day or week to complete the actions below. It may be helpful to bookmark this page so you can easily return to it as you complete your account setup.

Notes and Considerations


Set Up Your Institutional Account

If you haven’t already done so, you need to set up your institutional administrator account. You'll use this account to complete the remaining steps and to manage trainees.

To set up your account, use the link provided in the automated email that was sent directly from Time2Track. If you haven't received this, check your spam folder before contacting customer service.


Review the Glossary (required)

It's important you familiarize yourself with common Time2Track terminology before you set up your account.


Training Sites are locations where a trainee accrues activities and hours. Supervisors are attached to training sites and can approve activities and complete forms and evaluations.

Your task is to enter training sites and supervisors so trainees can select them when they create placements.

As you add new supervisors:


Add Courses (required)

Courses refer to the name or label given to an internship or practicum course, which trainees select when creating placements. If you don’t have specific courses to include, simply create a default course such as “practicum,” “internship,” or "community-based learning."


A term is the date range you create for the trainee's experience. This may or may not align with a program’s academic term. Remember to select the current term and update this each time you move to a new date range.

Tags can be created to track customized details about your trainees' activities and clients.


Set up a Demo Trainee Account (optional)

Setting up a free demo trainee account gives you the ability to view and test your program details from the trainee perspective.

You're ready to move to Phase 2 when:

  • You've completed all Phase 1 tasks.

Note: you do not need account manager approval to move to Phase 2.

Notes and Considerations


Create Trainee Signup Instructions (required)

Unlike supervisors and faculty members, trainees sign up for Time2Track on their own. As the institutional administrator, you'll need to create signup instructions for trainees. You'll share these instructions with trainees at launch (Phase 3).


Complete Prelaunch Checklist (required)

To finalize your account setup, ensure the following steps have been completed:


Test Your Time2Track Configurations

One of the most important steps to prepare for Phase 4 is testing your configurations. You'll want to be sure that your configurations work as intended and that you understand the trainee and supervisor workflows. As you go through the processes below, make note of any places you may want to make changes.

Test Configurations for All Roles

  1. Log in to Time2Track as an institutional administrator.
  2. Add yourself as a supervisor. Be sure to use the same account email address so you can easily switch roles during testing. Link your supervisor account to a training site.
  3. Switch to your demo trainee account. Create your placement. Be sure to use the same training site that your supervisor account is linked to.
  4. Log an activity and submit it for approval.
  5. Switch to your supervisor account and review your approvals. You can confirm or reject the approval.
  6. Finally, switch to your institutional administrator account. You can view your trainee account under the Students tab and review your activity reports.
4 Request Configuration Review Once you have completed steps 1 through 3, email your account manager at and request a configuration review. Once your account manager confirms your account is ready for launch, they will enable online approvals for trainees and release authorization keys to your account.

You're ready to move to Phase 3 when:

  • You've completed all Phase 2 tasks.
  • A configuration review is completed.
  • Your invoice is paid.

Your account manager will email instructions when the configuration review is complete and you are ready for launch.

Before you send trainees the instructions you wrote in Phase 2, make sure they include all the key information your trainees will need


As soon as trainees set up placements, verify placement accuracy.


The onboarding process is complete when:

  • You've completed all Phase 3 tasks.
