Time Tracking

I finally retired my Access-based time tracking tool, and switched to a new on-line tool called SyncD.  It turns out that it is a New Hampshire product, written by two brothers.  It has most of the features I was looking for:

  • 3 levels of detail: clients, projects, tasks
  • online employee access
  • the ability to enter starting and ending time – this is because I usually enter time at the end of the day, and this helps keep it organized.  Many other time tracking tools only allow you to enter a duration.  This is enough for reporting or billing, but less helpful when checking your time spent against emails in/out, phone logs, etc.
  • easy, intuitive interface
  • optimized, fast data entry

Things I don’t like (but I can live with):

  • no iPhone interface
  • unable to force time to 15-minute increments
  • no approval process – i.e., once a time is approved and or billed, then it can’t be changed

In the process of researching products, I built the following comparison grid:
