Do you dread the question “How long did you spend on this project?”

Listen to the article:

Like a lot of you, I work on multiple projects during the average working day and dread the question – how long did you spend on a particular task or project. Well, I did until I started using Toggl to track my time.

What is Toggl?

Toggl is an online time tracking tool with apps for the desktop and mobile allowing you to track time where ever you are. It allows you to track time against multiple projects with descriptions and tags. The time tracking is easy, a simple click to start and stop timing, but the real power is in the reporting.

 How do you use Toggl?

I use Toggl to track my time on tasks and projects by simply timing my tasks and assigning them to a project. To do this you can use the web app, desktop app or mobile phone app regardless if you have an internet connection or not.

At the end of the week, I use the reporting to help me report back on time utilisation and assist with future planning for similar tasks.

The reporting comes into it’s own when you get the dreaded question of how much time you spent on project this over the last 3 months.
