CNET Editors' review
The old saying that "time is money" is especially true for freelancers. That's why it's important to keep an accurate account of all the time spent on specific projects. As its name suggests, TimeSheet offers a simple way to track billable time on one or more projects. It's definitely one that we'll be keeping around while we work.
The program's user interface is pretty basic, but in a good way. An online Help feature is available, but we didn't need it to jump right in and start recording our time. We entered our project's name and the specific task under the Add section, and both appeared in a tree menu in the Overview box at the bottom of the small window. TimeSheet immediately started recording our time in the Duration box as well as the Overview box. The program has a feature to automatically track your time, so it tracks whenever you start or switch back and forth between applications. When we switched from a Word document to an Excel document, a pop-up asked us to assign the new document under a new project and task or select previous assignments from drop-down menus. Our project and task assignment then appeared in the Rules feature, which let us create If-Then-But rules to recognize applications and associate them with specific projects. We especially liked the Report feature, which runs both a weekly time report and an application report; it's perfect for including with client invoices. Overall, we found TimeSheet to be a worthy tool for managing our time.
TimeSheet is the automated time tracking solution. TimeSheet is a powerful and extremely easy to use automated time and task recording tool for professionals. It will improve accountability by increasing the billable hours: let the tool register what you are doing on your computer, what documents you are working on and for how long. Real time automated logging of tasks and projects based on used duplications and documents use smart rules to automatically determine the task and project working on.Less time spend on administration. It is accurate project budget control.
What's new in this version: Version 2.0.1 fixes on the Start-menu location.

"It's good if you can clearly classify what you do"
Version: TimeSheet 1.4.9
It's easy to define rules to classify your activities according to what you use to perform them. Once defined, TimeSheet will simply register what you're doing.
If you use the same application to perform several concurrent tasks there is no simple, evident way to select what you're effectively doing on a given time. Of course, you can create more elaborate rules to cover, but it gets a little messy...
It's a good tool, very useful if you can clearky define application-task couples. Given that it's easy and unobtrusive to use TimeSheet. But if you need more flexibility without the fuss of defining a new rule for every new task you must perform, you better look otherwise.
"An elegant solution. Powerful and clear."
Version: TimeSheet 1.1.5
The setting up of business rules is straightforward
The output reports provide an appropriate level of detail.
Automation is slick
None at the moment
As I have always found it difficult to maintain timesheets I decided to investigate the use of software to automatically track the work that I do. I am pleased to say that Timesheet stands head and shoulders above the range of software at which I looked. I do not have to remember to punch in a change of task or project; this is automated. The setting up of business rules is a straightforward process and the output reports provide the level of detail for which I have been looking. The clarity of the interface belies the power of the software and I am delighted with the outcome. Timesheet has managed to address the requirements in a most elegant way. I would recommend you take a look at this!
Version: TimeSheet 1.0
Cool tool to eliminate the work I do not like: Administration...!
What you are doing, will be watched
"Impressive simple / intuitive tool for tracking time"
Version: TimeSheet 1.0
Great for automatically tracking time and generating weekly time sheet reports for clients, including attendance, time and task details
Takes a short one-time period to setup the user-defined rules using the build-in learning functionality
I?ve recently been using the Timesheet application. I?m pretty impressed by such a simple / intuitive tool for the job.
By tracking how you spend your time on your computer, the tracking is sometimes more tedious than the doing. TimeSheet automatically logs your activity based on user-defined rules, so you can spend more time working and less time administrating.
