I can't get the Timer to work on Daylite Self Serve?

Using the Timer
How do I record time?
On the Timer interface click “Start” to record time and “Stop” to pause or finish recording. Then click “Send to Daylite” and the time will be recorded as an appointment in Daylite. You can also Start/Stop time using the time indicator in the toolbar.
How can I tell the Timer is running?
In the toolbar top right of your screen there is a time indictor. If the Timer is running it will count the time and also flash red. You can also use the indictor to Start/Stop recording time and to show the Timer.
How do I reset the Timer?
Either by clicking “Send to Daylite” to record the time in Daylite, or by clicking the menu labeled “Timer” and “Reset” or the key combination  ⌘R

Warning: If you reset the Timer any unsaved time will be lost.

What information can I record?
You can give the recorded time an appointment Name, Details, link it to a Project and assign a Category.
How do I link time to a Project?
Start to type a Project name in the top dropdown box marked “Project” – a list of your matching Projects will be displayed. Select the correct one. At the end of the day, you need to run the “DayliteTimer Linker.dlscript” to automatically link the Appointments to their Projects (automatic linking is currently being worked on and we hope it will be available soon).
How do I link time to a Category?
Click the bottom dropdown box marked “Category” – a list of your Categories will be displayed. Select the correct one.
I get an error saying "Name Required"?

Please ensure you are entering a name for the appointment before clicking “Send to Daylite”.
