Free Deal of the Week: Time Doctor 1-year subscription
Time Doctor is a time management program and service that keeps track of what you do when you work on your computer.
The service offers programs for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and Chromebooks, and collects activity automatically when it runs. There is also an application for iPhones, and an Android app is currently being worked on.
The main program interface is basic but sufficient. It enables you to select an existing task or create a new task which is then displayed in the interface.
You may then select tasks and hit the go button to have them tracked, or click on break or finish to stop the tracking temporarily or permanently.
A handful of keyboard shortcuts are provided to improve your workflow further. The information is submitted to the web service where statistics and other information are provided.
While the program keeps track of tasks, it is also recording other information such as the processes or websites that are visited while working on those tasks.
In addition, it may take screenshots regularly of the desktop as well (which you can disable in the settings).
The web interface displays detailed information about your activity. While it has mostly been designed for team use, it can be used by individuals as well to track usage or by freelancers for billing purposes.
