Time Tracking

It's hard to charge by the hour when one doesn't know how many hours were spent working on something. ActiveCollab has an integrated Stopwatch that can be set off on a project or a task. The uploaded time records can be later used for invoicing clients.


With Stopwatch you can track the time you spend working on your tasks. Run, pause, and resume the Stopwatch at any time, and add the time record once you're done.
