The nice thing about a free tool, too, is that you can take time to really explore it before adding paid features.

Thank you for your interesting article. You’re right, time tracking app should save our time, not waste it. In our company we use Actitime timesheet(http://www.actitime.com/). All basic time-tracking functionality is available for free. For our small team it’s perfect.

My VA has used Rescue Time and loves it, although she hasn’t tried the paid version.

They have a limited free version for teams up to 5, and the data is synced across devices, so you can use a smartphone, tablet, desktop or web app and it all syncs up. It also knows when you go inactive (in case you forget to turn the timer off) and gives you the option to delete that inactive time from the timer.

If you really want to discover “time drains”, try tracks all of your app use, web use (specific to which websites you’re using) and lets you set a rating for how productive each app/site. The free version only tells you which desktop apps you use and for how long-the paid version (only ($72/year) gives you document specific usage.

I’ve generally used timer-based tools, but am intrigued by something like timecockpit that does the tracking automatically. When you don’t have to start or stop a timer, I bet you are more likely to uncover distractions and ‘time drains’ that might not otherwise reveal themselves!

So you cannot forget to start and stop a timer and still know what you have been doing during the day.

You are totally right about it being much simpler to track your time while you are doing it.

Great point about being able to give clients real-time updates on budgets as well! It’s something we have done intuitively, but had never thought of as a benefit!

It sounds (and looks) like a powerful tool that works in multiple environments.

It makes monitoring the remote workforce easier. Great benefits not only for the employer alone but also for the employees who want to know how much time they spend on a project. Very recommended.
