The use of color for each project will give a fast indication of which timer is running in the taskbar notification area (tray icon). This way you can quickly, but without interrupting your work, see if the timer for the project you’re working on is running. Activities can have different pricing per hour and the program keeps up the amount of money earned per project, as well as a summary for all your running projects.
Optional: work with teams in the cloud
Project Timer is ideal for my needs. I work part-time for a client working as his executive assistant and his bookkeeper. I was getting myself in a mess just using a timesheet created in MS Excel and when I discovered Project Timer I was over the moon with joy.
It’s a very handy tool and just what I needed. We are using the team cloud subscription to share timer data and to make invoices.
I have been using it for a week now and rolling it out to our 7 person team. Response has been very good. The software answers the 3 key questions we have about our team. 1.) What did you work on today? 2) How much time have you been spending on any one project? 3) What projects are in the mix?
It’s simple to just click a button and start to work. you don’t need to retype stuff to organise your work.
