Time tracking

KTimetracker – personal time tracker

KTimeTracker is a todo management and time tracking application.

KTimeTracker tracks time spent on various tasks. It is useful for tracking hours to be billed to different clients or just to find out what percentage of your day is spent on a specific activity.

This time history can be exported to a comma-delimited text file for import into other billing and/or project management tools.

KTimetracker detects when your keyboard and mouse are idle and can associate different tasks with different desktops, two tools that can help keep the timer running on the correct task.

Features include:

  • Unlimited tasks and task depth. Time may be logged to any task, and more than one task can be active at any given time.
  • Edit your task’s history and to put a comment for every event that you’ve stopped.
  • Import and export tasks to minimize your work.
  • Simple time tracking. KTimetracker maintains two timers for each task: one for the session time and one for the total time. In the default configuration, KTimetracker displays two columns for each timer, resulting in a total of four columns for each task.
  • Can be configured to detect when the mouse and keyboard become idle.
  • Uses the industry standard iCalendar format for its data. KTimetracker can read and write the to-do lists created by KOrganizer and Apple’s iCal.
  • D-Bus support.
  • Export both totals and history to a comma-delimited file format.
  • Export history to CSV.

KTimeTracker has a very useful feature: virtual-desktop-related time-tracking. That way, you can use a virtual desktop for each group of tasks, and automatically track how much time you spend on each group of tasks :-).

For example, one good idea is having:
– One virtual desktop for working.
– One virtual desktop for reading the news.
– One virtual desktop for studying.
– One virtual desktop for leisure time.

That way, you can keep the time you spend working, or reading the news, etc. easily (without having to start/stop tasks throughout the whole day!).

For example, every virtual desktop can have its web browser, file manager, etc. so you can work without minding (all day long) if your web browser is on one page (or another) in order to track the time.
