Has anyone come up with a timer that allows one to track time spent on tasks and tag the tasks for later reporting in an effortless, integrated way (a.k.a., SlimTimer in OmniFocus 2 Pro)
I have spent a lot of time looking for a solution and the closest I have come is Vitamin-R or perhaps toggl.
Maybe I should have just written up a SlimTimer integration since the SLIMTIMER Public API is REST-based and fluent in XML, YAML and JSON
It doesn’t completely integrate with OmniFocus but i use OfficeTime on my Mac, iPad, and iPhone. It syncs between all devices.
On the Mac, if it senses that I haven’t touched the keyboard or mouse, OfficeTime will ask me if i want to just erase the last XXX minutes or credit the elapsed time to another project.
The Mac version has a menubar timer to help start, pause, and resume the timer. In the notes, I just type in what I was working on. Then I check off the task in OmniFocus.
You can export the time log out for use in your office report.
This app is great at automatically tracking usage by app, document, file or directory being accessed.
