Have you ever felt at the end of the day, not having shot much work as you expected? However, a whole day in front of a PC screen, this is not nothing! If you want to improve your profitability and achieve your goals, no choice: You will have to go through the Time Tracking to find out what are the most time-consuming activities in the day… A tool like Rescue Time should give you a strong boost.
The tool is not entirely web based as it requires installing a small application to track activity on your computer. Once this little application installed and your account created, your activities will be recorded and sent to your online account. The data collected by Rescue Time will be shaped to graphically display your activities. You’ll see how long you worked on your Excel spreadsheet, answered your emails or how your “little” visit on Facebook was time consuming. Of course It is possible to pause the “spy” when you want.
The results, after a day or even a week, will change your way of working. The free version is sufficient for most of us. If you want more information, a premium version will offer you more complete graphics and functionalities.
