Productivity-tracking Software
July 12, 2005 9:05 PM   Subscribe

I'm looking for a productivity-tracking software (freeware) that does the very simplest task of logging the applications I'm using, and its usage duration. At the end of the day it will help me to identify the time I spent mucking around on the web, and actual work productivity.

The software doesn't need to monitor keystrokes, or what websites I visit, etc... at the end of the day I just want to a report on how long I spent working on each program daily, eg 3 hours Photoshop, 2 in Word, 6 on the Web, etc.

WorkTime does exactly that. Free download, but nagware. 30 bucks to buy.

Microsoft Outlook outlook can do some of this with it's journal feature - a co-worker uses it to do exactly that, how well it works I don't know.

Vakcer Project Tracker.

It looks very good. I've used the demo a few times and it seems like a great solution.
