Anne, who used to manage me at Data Connection, left earlier this year to set up her own company, Working Program. I’m pleased to be able to say that they’ve just launched their first product, Qlockwork – a personal time tracking application. It watches what you do and what applications you use and puts the results into a new Outlook calendar, so you can correctly allocate your time between various projects or clients.
I personally found working with and on Outlook plugins to be a miserable experience, so I congratulate her on her fortitude and persistence.
Sadly (but fairly obviously), it’s only available for Windows. Does anyone know of anything like this in the free software world? I’m not interested in things where you have to fill in all the data manually.
