TaskBlaze - Time Tracking your Tasks

Download TaskBlaze

I complete quite a few tasks over the course of any given day. Researching and writing articles, dealing with advertising, tweaking settings on various sites. What I don't do is keep very accurate track of how much time I'm spending on each task. Just the other night, someone asked me how much time I spent doing things during my day - I don't really have a clue because I've never tracked it. I make a list of things I need to get done (typically using Outlook's Tasks feature), checking off completed items as I go. Getting a better handle on how much time I'm spending on specific tasks would certainly help determine if I'm using my time effectively. I recently discovered TaskBlaze, which helps track time spent on all those little tasks throughout the day. The app requires Outlook and automatically tracks your time as you work on projects. Enter the name of a task in one box, and any categories for the task in a second box. Hit the start button and get to work. When you complete the task, click stop and TaskBlaze writes the time spent on the task to your Outlook calendar, with categories assigned for later organization. It's a simple solution and it seems to work flawlessly for what it does. [Windows 2k/XP $0.00]
