Post New Requests Here / IDEA: Folder Monitor for Logging Work
« on: April 11, 2007, 05:47 PM »
HI there. Not sure if this would qualify as a coding snack, or if someone may know of something that does this already.

I have tried many different time logging apps, but they keep failing because I keep forgetting to press the go and stop buttons.

My work folder is split into subfolders for each client, so ideally, I'd love an app that starts the clock when I open (or create) a file within a folder (or one of it's subfolders/subsubfolder, etc), and stops the clock when I move onto something else, close the file, or the computer is idle for (x) minutes. If all this could be logged in a plain old text file, I'd be set. Maybe another option would be stopping the clock if a certain application becomes active (for me, that would be Firefox).

Is this possible? Has it been done already?
