Was ist Timing?
Timing automatisiert Ihre Zeiterfassung. Anstatt von Hand Timer zu starten und zu stoppen, erfasst Timing, welche Apps Sie verwenden, welche Webseiten Sie besuchen und welche Dokumente Sie bearbeiten. Anschließend können Sie die erfassten Zeiten Ihren Projekten zuordnen oder Timing dies vollautomatisch erledigen lassen. Umfassende Berichts- und Export-Funktionen (z.B. für das Erstellen von Stundenzetteln oder Rechnungen) sind selbstverständlich ebenfalls integriert.
Wer verwendet Timing?
Timing richtet sich in erster Linie an Freelancer und kleine Agenturen. Selbst wenn Sie nicht nach Stunden abrechnen, hilft Ihnen Timing, die pro Projekt aufgewendete Zeit im Griff zu behalten.

Outstanding software for time tracking
Kommentare: Timing combines many things in one app: manual time tracking and automatic time tracking; estimating time needed for a task (and then readjusting it if needed) or categorising the time after working for few hours or a day. It has a beautiful and very flexible menu. After using many time tracking apps I would definitely recommend this one as number one, much better than for example Toggl. It really makes me think about my time and categorise it properly.
- Desktop app, not a website - Coloured timeline - Manual and automatical task categorisation (you can categorise some apps, websites, folders or keywords as always belonging to a specific task/activity but you can also manually overrun it or track time by starting and finishing task after task) - Productivity score based on productivity scores assigned to each task - Great flexibility - Great statistics - Immediate support
- You can't override a manual task assigment with an automatic assignment. Usually I'm working on something for a longer time so I manually assign it to a task. But it is often the case that in the meantime sometting needs my attention, e.g. an email comes and I have to reply right away and then switch back to the long-term task. The most efficient way to count how much time has been spent on the main task and how much on other tasks ("distractions") would be to set the main task manually (e.g. 10-11 = Writing) but to drag some apps that were used in this period (e.g. 3 minutes of gmail) to other categories (e.g. gmail) and substract them from the time spent on the main, manually set task. - I'd love to set shortcuts for the most often used projects and have a list of most often used projects to be able to assign activities faster and without scrolling a very long projects list.

Kommentare: I got it as a part of SetApp subscription service, which also great. I'm completely satisfied, which I can't say about other software of this kind. Most of them where uninstalled just few minutes after. This one sticked for months now and I know I'll keep it as long as possible. It has this nice gamification feel to it, because it shows clearly how much time has been wasted, how long I worked and what's my productivity score. It's really nice to see that because of this software my productivity soared from 40-50% to 80-90%. Sometimes for as long as 8-10 hours. That's really something amazing!
It's a great software! I've been looking for some different products to monitor my productivity. I work from home and I struggled for years to be more accountable to myself and more productive. Although this software was intended to bill for various project, I find it useful for this as well. Whole UI is very simple and clean. I created different projects and sub-projects to monitor what I spend my time one, like "accounting", "planning" and "marketing". Reviewing and analyzing what I was doing and what was my productivity hour by hour and overall is a great tool. It's one of those programs that that really helped me. It's sufficient and does everything great.
It could be a little bit more intelligent in predicting what I was working on, but seriously, there is just looking for something negative. Oh, maybe removing activity from timeline would be useful. Maybe I would add an option to monitor iPhone usage as well, because I sometimes talk a lot on phone while away from keyboard or manage my social media.
Kommentare: I will not renew my subscription. I will find a cheap alternative and a one-time purchase or even a free one.
it seemed useful for watching my computer daily engagement
it was too expensive to buy (39 euro for just one year!) and it demands a yearly subscription. Not at all good for a private user. I now realize that it targets businesses who are willing to pay any amount. But if you are a private user like myself, then do not buy it, it is not worth its money.
Best Solution for Tracking Time
I use Timing to keep track of time spent on my personal and client projects. Timing makes time tracking easy for me because I do most of all my work on the computer. So each time I switch between applications, Timing automatically tracks the time I'm using in each application. I can also set up separate time tracking for projects that involve both computer and non-computer work. In the great thing about Timing is that it provides clearly readable reports that I can attach to my client invoices. What makes Timing even better is that he works in the background, which means I don't have to in most cases start and stop the timing, because Timing does that for me. It took me a while to figure out how to best use Timing, but after a little bit of trial and error I'm using without any problems.
I can't think of any significant cons about Timing. The user interface is not the most modern design, and for many people it might not be very intuitive without reading the written instructions or watching a few instructional videos.
The first time tracking tool that fits my needs: it tracks what I do and I can assign projects later
Kommentare: Its very easy to figure out when I have been using on which project. Tools that require to set the project I am working on manually never worked for me. Timing is the tool I have been dreaming of for years!
- really the best time tracking tool for freelancers when working on multiple projects. I often switch to another project without "planning" it and with timing I can see exactly when that happened. - unlike most other tools the working day does not end at midnight (I often work past midnight) - can automatically assign projects based on the titles of the windows you are working on - great way to review the work of the day - does not require to store date in the cloud - very reliable -- no crashes for years - excellent customer support
Color scheme is not well thought out (I wish I could assign a base color to a project and then sub-projects would use shades of the base color) A bit expensive, but worth the money
