IDEA: 15 minute work log
« on: July 07, 2013, 07:14 PM »
So at my new job, we log our task every 15 minutes.
I was wondering if there was a desktop application to Keep track of each 15 minutes what you are doing, and then add up your times per task for the day.
I did this in jquery and html but was interested in a native app.

My own Anuran doesn't add up the times but you might find it useful for your purposes.

Wow, very useful!
Do you have any plans to open-source this? Then I could modify it to work with 15 minute increments somehow.

In fact I could pop it up at ever 15 minute interval, 10:00-10:15, 10:15-10:30, 10:30-10:45
forcing me to enter what I did for the last 15 minutes

I don't have plans to open source Anuran.  However, you can set it up to fire the popup every fifteen minutes.

Yep.   :D

Same situation here - work is logged in quarter-hour increments. I am the absolute worst at remembering what I did an hour ago with calls coming in and jumping between projects.

I found PTM (Personal Task Manager)and it's saved my bacon more than once! Highly recommended.

You can configure it to prompt you at a specified interval, it tracks the windows/applications you've used, and provides time time totals.

Very nice find.  I'll bet relipse can make use of this.
