    Tracking Time?

    I'm not new to web design but I am kinda new to freelancing. What methods does everyone use to keep track of time spent working on a given project? Is there a software app that can do this?

    MS Project or Macromedia SiteSpring pop into mind. You can always make your own spreadsheet, as well.

    Quickbooks will do it, as will Time & Billing

    Do a search for project management software or stopwatch on the freeware sites, there are plenty.

    Thank you guys for the response. I am curently using/learning QuickBooks Pro 20002 Premier. Do you happen to know where the time management feature is found? Quickbooks is pretty intuitive but still some of the features are confusing. I'll look into sitespring.

    For Quickbooks (at least on mine: 2000 Pro), under employees (or on the employee panel), just use Time/Enter Single Activity.

    It'll open a page where you can assign the activity to a job & employee, and use the added stopwatch.
