`0:00*`

or `*`

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`
