Being a freelancer, time is your most precious resource. Unless you have productized your services, you’re literally selling your time. It’s a scarce resource worth monitoring closely.
The more aware you are about what you are spending time on, the more efficiently you can manage your time and boost your productivity.
Smarter freelance business decisions.
Proper and consistent Time Tracking enables you to make informed business decisions. If you can identify tasks that eat up a bunch of your time, you can focus on optimizing or eliminating those. Or put a bigger price tag on them.
Time tracking makes freelancers happier. Seriously.
Believe me. It does. Time Tracking forces you to reflect on your days work and look at what you have achieved. Constantly tracking your progress and celebrating the small wins on a daily or weekly basis is key to maintaining a healthy mind, staying self motivated and relieving stress. That is especially important for freelancers who work remotely and naturally lack frequent performance reviews. And as a positive side effect, you’ll become a more confident negotiator when it’s time to talk money.
Build more successful freelance business relationships.
If you are working on demand, time tracking seems like a no brainer. Your client needs to know what you are charging for. But no matter if your clients require you to report time or not, successful freelancers know that being transparent about the activities you are charging for builds trust and helps you establish long lasting, prospering relationships with your clients.
Free time tracking for everyone.
Basically since Day One, a large number of our users were asking for time tracking. Well, here we go! With our latest app update (available in the App Store), we are rolling out time tracking to all AND CO members! For free. No credit card needed. No strings attached.
We’ve designed it for mobile first, but we will be bringing it to your desktop very soon. AND CO’s time tracking feature is giving you all the utility of a common standalone app, but seamlessly integrates with your invoicing and projects.
Time tracking every second.
Our built-in timer let’s you track hours in real time and easily add them to your timesheet.
A time tracking app that gets out of your way.
Accessing your timers directly from My Desk is the fastest way to add time to one of your running or upcoming projects.
But because not everyone uses time tracking all the time, we show the task only if you are using it. For example: The task only shows if you have a project with a populated timesheet. Or a running timer.
Users who don’t care about time tracking won’t even notice it’s there. So if you never use time tracking, we won’t show it on your desk, making sure it doesn’t take away any of your attention. #KeepingItLean
Designed for busy freelance professionals.
Timers are automatically created for each of your running or upcoming projects. This way you can start tracking time immediately without having to set timers up or create them.
All timers are grouped by client. If you have multiple milestones set up, each milestone will have an individual time sheet so you can track how much time you spent on each.
Catch up effortlessly.
We know that there are a lot of moments where you are too busy to think about time tracking. So we made it easy to catch up whenever you are ready. Just open any timesheet within your projects and start adding activities. As easy as 1:23.
To edit your timesheet just tap an entry, or swipe left to delete. Add time to activity already tracked, change the date, or swipe left to delete an entry.
Keep track of your progress.
By setting a budget you will be able to track time in parallel with a goal. At a glimpse, you’ll know how much time you’ve already spent. This allows you to give your client a quick heads up that you might exceed the estimated scope.
Monitoring your performance.
Even if you don’t want to share your timesheets with clients, time tracking is a great tool to monitor your performance. It enables you to come up with more accurate estimates, budgets and deadlines. Setting the right expectations before starting a project potentially saves you a lot of frustration and painful discussions about exceeded budgets and missed deadlines along the way.
Generate detailed invoices automagically.
With time tracking, it’s even more convenient to create detailed invoices for your clients. Your activities show directly on the invoice and add that extra touch of transparency. Clients like that.
Depending on the project you are working on, It’s always up to you if you would like these hours to show on the invoice or not.
