As time management becomes harder for workers, students, and parents to accomplish, technology has been developed to help out. People who are overworked can manage their time and get to important events and finish everything on their to-do list with a little electronic assistance.
As smartphones have become more commonplace, apps have been developed that can help people track time for a more structured schedule, get them access to more spare time, and improve productivity.
Check out these three excellent time trackers.
1. Google Calendar
This program is accessible on the computer, as well as an app for your smartphone. The online calendar is free and can keep track of time, record appointments, and organize tasks that need to be completed.
The app can serve as a to-do list or as a calendar, and is easy to export so you can keep track of your schedule on multiple platforms. Reminders can be set for activities so they do not get overlooked.
2. Klok Cloud
The Klok Cloud system syncs mobile devices to an online database that can be used on either the mobile or a computer. The system is built with Adobe AIR and is a cross-platform tracking solution.
Projects can be managed with a hierarchy of sub-projects in a task-management sidebar. You can add tasks to the workflow over the course of the day. Comments can be added to the projects in each block of time with the potential to make adjustments so you can see how long it took to work on each particular project.
The app TimeLog works online as well as offline, so you have constant access to time tracking that can be synced with TimeLog Project. The app can be used on any smartphone to determine how long it takes to complete a given task so it can be billable to a company while you’re working, or simply used to control how much time you devote to a particular task.
Even with a smartphone, it may still be hard to track the time you are wasting or spending on other tasks, such as grocery shopping. Using these apps in conjunction with making sure you check the time on a watch can help keep you on track for the things that are important outside of your work and chores.
These apps can be downloaded online. You can also purchase a new or pre-owned watch online to assist with time management, too.
