Flexible User Defined Categories
Track time to flexible user-defined categories such as customers/clients, projects/jobs, tasks, sub-tasks, systems, products, services, or any other items that you choose.
The screenshot on the right shows an example category structure allowing time to be grouped for work done on various customer systems. This structure appears when configuring categories, editing time entries and generating reports.
When recording or adding time entries the category is selected using a simple popup menu.
In summary the categories in Complete Time Tracking are completely customizable.
If many of your categories follow the same general structure, such as a common list of tasks for each project, you can create category templates which define the common structures. A complete task list is automatically created when you create a new project from the template.
If you later add a new task to the project template you can optionally add the task to all existing projects based on the template.
For infrequent cases where an indentical category hierarchy is required the category and its subcategories can be copied and pasted.
Alternatively you can set hourly charge rates for each user/staff member (Professional edition) to charge staff out at different rates.
Custom Category Codes
If you also work with a separate project management or accounting system you can assign the codes used in that system to the categories that you define in Complete Time Tracking.
The category codes appear when selecting categories and are displayed in reports, allowing you to easily match the information between Complete Time Tracking and the external system.
Hide Unused Categories
You can quickly show hidden categories if necessary and categories can be easily made visible if they become active again.
Set Project and Task Percent Complete
By setting the percent complete for a category you can track its progress. An optional setting can set the category to be hidden from time tracking selection when you mark the category to 100% complete.
Flexible Time Durations
You can select the time duration display format used to show recorded time durations in various windows, and in reports and exported data.
The duration for recorded time can be manually adjusted to allow you to implement rounding rules, such as rounding up time to intervals such as 0.1 hours, 15 minutes and so on.
Many Time Entry Formats
It’s the little things that make a product easier to use. For convenience start and end times manually entered can be specified in more than 10 different formats, many of which are shown in the following list.
9, 9am, 930, 9:30, 09:30, 9.30, 93045, 9:30:45, 9:30AM, 9:30 am
Additionally, times crossing midday are conveniently interpreted as pre-midday and post-midday even when you don’t specify it explicitly. For example, a start time of 9 is interpreted as 09:00 (9AM), and an end time of 2 in this situation is interpreted as 14:00 (2PM), not 02:00 (2AM).
