"Easy to install, and once a week I get my data"

September 19, 2009  |  By teknominds

 |  Version: Chrometa 2.0.0.3

Pros

Worth the money, easy to use

Cons

Can't print out my Excel reports, but it sounds like that will work in the next release.

Summary

Fairly simple to install. It tracks all documents that I work on, and how long I spend working on proposals, web research, and in my email. I have clients in India and Japan who prefer to speak on Skype, and the calls show up on the weekly totals. I like the product because I just push a button, and it deals with the math.

"Difficult to understand and use"

September 18, 2009  |  By slightstk

 |  Version: Chrometa 2.0.0.3

Pros

None. It looked like it was going to be an amazing applicaiton until I used it.

Cons

Hard to use, Can't define clients. Can't define applications. It would not recognize any of my desktop applications and looked like one long stream on one application. the only application it segregated was FireFox pages visited. Can't add apps

Summary

Not worth the price. It has a lot of potential and if these things were fixed I would buy it.

"Wonderful tool to increase my productivity"

August 22, 2009  |  By AllisonGoodman

 |  Version: Chrometa 2.0.0.3

Pros

Really easy to use, automatic, intuitive interface, makes keeping track of what i do on my computer a breeze. 30 day free trial!

Cons

none so far

Summary

I downloaded this program to keep track of how I use my time during the day and increase my productivity. I have been reading some books and they mentionned that keeping track of what you do and reviewing it daily is the best way to change habits. I came across this program it works great! It is just so easy to install and run and works exactly as advertised. I've used it for a few days now and have already found out what times of day my mind wanders, how much time i waste reading cnn article and watching utube video forwards. This is such a cool tool! It's definitley worth the 30-day free trial...I'm addicted already.

"Simple and straightforward to set up and use."

August 19, 2009  |  By mhamaps

 |  Version: Chrometa 2.0.0.3

Pros

It's clean, simple and easy to use, and I don't have to "think" about tracking my time.

Cons

Can't see any.

Summary

While not an attorney, I'm more of a free agent that needs to track my time for numerous clients and projects and this seems to really provide me with some flexible ways to scale this daunting task, and I'm excited about deploying it in this fashion.

The best products or tools are ones that simply the complexity of the task by making it easy and repeatable. I see Chrometa as doing that, and that in one word is simply elegant.

"A "holy grail" for anyone who has to track time!"

August 18, 2009  |  By brettowens

 |  Version: Chrometa 2.0.0.3

Pros

- Tracking is all automatic...so I don't have to hit start/stop button
- I can setup categories to organize my time by client
- It also allows me to easily bucket this time into categories by dragging and dropping
- Finally it "learns" as I go!

Cons

- None really on the core product, it does everything it sets out to do extremely well. This product paid for itself by the end of the 1st week...easily!

Summary

The ability to track time in a completely "hand off" manner is key. The interface rocks, and it's super easy to use. If you bill hourly, you probably don't realize what a "charity" you're running, until you start using Chrometa to track your time!

There is a Timestamp view also, which allows you to go back in time and piece together holes. Say for example you don't remember what you did last Tuesday morning - but you know you worked, and you know it was billable. You just select the date in the calendar, pull up the view, and voila! It has a log of what you worked on - as if you had a personal timekeeper recording time for you!

The main view is also highly useful, as it shows me - by day, or for a given date range - exactly how my time was spent. By category, client, etc. I can view this at a very high level, and drill down to get the exact level of detail I need.

And the level of detail in the activity descriptions is phenomenal - I'm able to trace back an email's subject line, a document title (and path), a website's URL - very valuable stuff when I'm billing my client and need to add in descriptions and details of what I'm billing them for!

One of my favorite adds in Chrometa 2.0 is the "drag and drop" feature, which lets me select one or more activity entries, and simply drag them onto the appropriate category - easy!

Finally another great addition is the capture of computer away time - there's an option to prompt me, when I get back to my PC, to ask if I'd like to log the time. Super useful for keeping track of those little interruptions that I usually miss - a 10 minute phone call, etc.

All in all, if you have to keep track of your time carefully, you need to try Chrometa!

"Are you a lawyer who bills by the hour? YOU NEED THIS"

August 18, 2009  |  By razztazz23

 |  Version: Chrometa 2.0.0.3

Pros

Automatic time tracking - no more start and stop buttons; Great user interface is easy to use; saves me hours every month from doing my time; Allows me to parse my time so I can see what it tracks before I submit my time.

Cons

Would love integration with my phone system at work. Otherwise, its a dream.

Summary

If you are an attorney or someone who bills by the hour this program is the killer app of the year. My firm gives us a lousy start and stop timer to track our time. I used to end up just jotting down notes on a post it note and going through my emails to figure out what I did. With Chrometa, its simple. It keeps track of everything I do on my computer. Writing a brief. Tracked. Researching on Westlaw. Tracked. Chrometa organizes my time for me and then allows me to link it to a client number. What is cool is that it remembers the client numbers so I can drag and drop future briefs or memos for that client right into the client's name. Then when its ready to enter my time into the time keeping software, its simple and organized. What used to take me 2 or 3 hours a month takes 15 minutes, which lets me leave work a little earlier.
