I need to bill the client. Now if I can only remember how much time I worked for them ...
I came to work at about 8:30. Did I start working for the client right away?
Then I went to lunch at around 12pm and I think I was gone for about an hour... or was it more?
Why do I always forget to start the stopwatch...
I wish there was another way.
You started at 7:45, was at lunch from 11:55 to 12:45 and...
Today you worked for your client for 4.5 hours.
ManicTime automatically records your computer usage. It remembers which apps you've used and for how long. It will also remember which web sites you've visited and which documents you've worked on. All this data will help you keep track of your work hours.
ManicTime is not a cloud based service, instead it uses a local datastore, so all recorded data will be kept on your machine. This also means that it will work the same with or without internet connection.
All the data ManicTime collects will be presented in a easy to understand graphical interface. This will help you to quickly figure out when you went to lunch and when you've switched tasks. From now on, your logged hours will be accurate and simple to track.
From the hours you logged its easy to create almost any kind of report. Once you create the report, you can easily copy it to Excel or some other tool and create an invoice there.
ManicTime can integrate with task based systems, like Jira or GitHub. You can use ManicTime to enter your work hours, then send the timesheet back to specific issue.
Use ManicTime in your company or your team. ManicTime Server will collect all data and generate useful reports.
ManicTime captures a lot of data and you can use this data to create work activities. For example you can say that all facebook activity is "Browsing" and that all MS Word usage is "Work".
Equally important as tracking computer usage is tracking non usage. When you step away from the computer, ManicTime will track this as Away time. When you return, you can create a note of what you were doing during Away.
Even though ManicTime excels at automatic time tracking, you can still use a stopwatch to manually track your time.
I do contract work and manage multiple projects where I bounce between projects on an almost by the minute basis. Once tagging is setup I can easily tag all my activities as I do them and my time accumulates in each project bucket. At the end of the day my timesheet is a breeze. This is the best tool I have found so far for a work style that involves heavy duty multi-tasking. I don't know what I would do without ManicTime. Well designed and thought out product. Cindy
Just renewed my licence for another year Just thought I'd let you know that this is one of the best pieces of software I've ever installed on my computer, free or paid for. I run my own business which principally relies on writing technical reports. ManicTime has made it so much easier to track my time over the various projects and therefore manage my fees and costs. (And your support has been excellent when I have had the odd problem). Paul
Just wanted to let you know that I think your software has helped me capture $1000's of dollars in revenue that I just wasn't billing before, as I wasn't doing a very good job of tracking my time. With ManicTime I get it all, and if I were ever to be audited by a client, I could give them every detail. Thanks so much! Linda
The interface is very intuitive and easy to use. The ability to tag and color-code my work allows me to see at a glance how my day has been going. I can organize and structure things as much or as little as I like. What a great product! Gary
