what do you all do for timetracking
Hi, I don't need a billable timesheet multi user system. I'm basically trying to keep track on how much time I spend on my music and the various different facets of that. I would like some sort of reporting i.e. a week breakddown at least.
Just wondering what others are using.
I've tried ClockedIn and TimeLines on the iPhone. Both work quite well.
sorry, I meant on the PC, or Web, thanks
Might I suggest something silly, since you are @computer and that you just want to time track and collate a time for a specific master category or project (and it sounds more like for curiosity sake). Excel works great. If you have Office, it is something you already have and is effectively (now) free.
For me, sometimes, I get stuck on wanting to use a specific tool, when a tool I already have already does the work sufficiently.
There is even a timecard template you might be able to leverage:
There's also a free web service called 1DayLater that visualizes it all for you among your different areas of focus, projects, clients, etc.

I use http://BubbleTimer.com and absolutely love it. It's not free, but there is a free trial, after which it's just $20 for a year. I've been using it for almost a year and a half now, and it has really given me a great perspective on what I'm spending my time doing.
Where it really shines is in the fact that you don't have to get all anal about recording everything to-the-minute, because the time bubbles represent fifteen minute chunks. This means you can spend less time trying to figure out how many minutes were spent doing something, and more time actually doing it.
It also includes the ability to set daily and weekly goals of things you want to achieve, or things you want to minimize. You can view reports on whatever timeframe you want to see, or export and view in a spreadsheet.
That 1DayLater one looks pretty intriguing too; thanks Shryse for pointing it out!
