The Timetrack tab shows a symbol (usually a green dot) for every waypoint in the timeline.

When you change an object property while in Animate Editing Mode, for example by moving an object, a waypoint is inserted. The columns of the Timetrack tab are aligned with the Params tab. If you are animating the individual vertices, you have to expand the vertices list to see them individually.

You can drag those waypoints through time, and you can change their interpolation method by right-clicking (eg. a sudden step change instead of a smooth transition).
