Toggl Desktop

by Feb 7, 2012Tech

One of the problems with using any time-tracking software is that you actually have to tell it what you’re doing and when you start and stop. I mean, shouldn’t it just know?

Toggl Desktop has taken one step toward solving that problem for me: it lets me know if I’ve left my computer idle for an extended period of time and asks me if I want to drop that dead time from my tracking. Now, I could’ve been reading a book and just not touching the computer. But it’s still nice to have that reminder and that option. Helps me be more accurate.

As my time becomes more pressed, and running as I do a (very) small business that has to give accurate estimates on how much time something will take me, I like this feature of Toggl Desktop.

Thanks, Toggl. Thanks a lot!
