Time Tracking Software

The development team where I work is going to start tracking the time spent working on each project. Although in some ways this feels like a bureaucratic hassle, it will be useful as far as justifying our existence and provide some ammo for why we shouldn’t tackle every suggestion that crosses our desks (e.g. the “trivial tweak” that actually take 12 hours to implement).

I did find a couple of items when I created Project Management tab in iGoogle and selected “I’m feeling lucky. Automatically add stuff based on the tab name.”

The former offers an Excel report, the latter a graph.

Since a number of developers will be using it, it would be nice if we had something we could all use and then run reports from one place. Any ideas?

  1. I’ve been trying out Klok for the past couple weeks. I like how it hovers above my other desktop apps, but there are a few improvements I would love to see made (bugs fixed and features added).
