Help me find something better than Time2Track

Counseling student here, in the death throes of my 3-year part-time counseling MA. When I started my practicum, they made us sign up with this website called Time2Track. I want to give Time2Track the boot. Help me find another internship time tracker.

Time2Track is supposed to be a time tracker that helps you keep track of time spent at a counseling/social work/psych internship as you work toward licensure. And you can divide it up by indirect hours and direct hours, etc.

In truth, Time2Track is the devil. If you mess anything up, you have to go back and change it all, one by one. And it is so damn easy to mess up. And there's no mobile option. If you're doing in-home counseling, you just have to wait til you get home to put your hours in, pal.

Anyhow, this year, they want us to pay a subscription to use this...this thing. I don't feel like paying money for it, and so I am looking for an alternative.

I see MyPsychTrack and PsyKey, and I'm wondering if anyone wandering around AskMeFi has any experience with these (or other mobile-friendly or heck, human-friendly internship time trackers).

Thank you!

I used an Excel spreadsheet for this, back in the dark ages of the early 2000s. It could easily be done with a Google doc. Just putting it out there in case the fancy apps actually make it harder, which is sometimes the case.

Not specific to an industry, but I love OfficeTime. I've used it for many years to track different billing rates, categories, invoicing etc. I can use excel in a pinch, but just wanted an easier way to track my time, and OfficeTime was perfect. Simple and accessible on mobile platforms. Also allows you to make notations for time periods.

I don't know about psych-apps, so YMMV. Good luck!

On the off-chance you're in California, I really recommend TrackYourHours. I think it also requires a subscription (I ended up with a free or discounted subscription because I was a beta tester), but it saved my sanity during my internship.

Well, getting contacted by the company itself is about as good as it gets. Maggie, I'll be in contact soon. Thank you!
