The flow we call start-stop time collector is basically a quick flow to get into your running time collectors and stop them.

So with the start-stop job task, you could actually move through this flow to find an existing task you’re working on and then stop it.

But normally, you would click the start-stop time collectors. And you can select from your open time collector the ones that are running, for instance, this one has been running for one hour, seven minutes.

And I could stop it within this flow when I click next.

And it suggests to stop like this. And if I look into my time collectors, now I can see it’s stopped up here with one hours, 15 minutes. Now just waiting to be processed.

And the difference between this overview is that you could just, because you can actually just run it from in here, there’s a start stop functionality as well.

So you could run the flow from start-stop time collectors, but be aware of the menu here.

Now I’m going into start stop time collectors in the lookup here, I don’t have access to the menu. So this is a simple page with few information.

Whereas if I find it in my time collectors, I have different functionality in here that all users should not have access to.

And therefore, this picture time collectors might only be for managers, and therefore, some users might not have this action.
