I’m always shifting between tasks and always forget what I did “yesterday”. This makes it really hard to keep a consistent and accurate timetracking, when it comes to how much time to assign to customer projects.
Today I found a tool that keeps track of my actions “automatically”. I’ve for a long time been thinking about writing a task tray utility that monitored what you were doing, with the purpose of reporting this every Friday. Surprise-surprise, another dude have come up with that utility already! It looks pretty “old school” in the UI, but if it works – then I don’t care.
I’m going to give PTM a chance and see how it works for me!
