About TimeChunks - time tracking

Input TimeChunks instead of HH:MM:SS

A TimeChunk is the smallest unit that you usually charge, this can be e.g. a full hour, a quarter of an hour or just a minute or something completely different. You can define this flexibly in the settings.

The big advantage: TimeChunks doesn’t need (and has) a timer and no annoying HH:MM:SS input fields. For example, if you bill per quarter hour and want to bill 45 minutes, you just type “4” instead of “00:45:00”, i.e. one TimeChunk would be 15 minutes or 900 seconds in this case.

TimeChunks are individually adjustable

Creating tasks with paths

TimeChunks does not have an integrated task management in a real sense. If you want to record time for a task, you simply type a path that fits your requirements. A path is nothing more than a loose and flexible hierarchy of your projects and tasks. Work with information and structures that fit you and your work - not the other way around.

Paths in practice

Instead of creating a customer, a project, a task and 7 subtasks before you could record a single minute of work time, you simply type a path in TimeChunks with TimeChunks at the end

> Little Lemonade Stand Inc./Making Lemonade/Prepare Fruit/4

If you have set a duration of 15 minutes for a TimeChunk, you would record 1 h of effort for the task.

If you continue to work on the project and want to record time for it, you simply type a path again - this time even faster thanks to autocompletion:

> Little Lemonade Stand Inc./Making Lemonade/Crushing Ice/2

So within a few moments you have recorded your working time and can easily prepare it for billing when the time comes.

The export for our example would look like this:

1.2.2022 - 28.2.2022

15.2.2022: 00:30 h @ Little Lemonade Stand Inc. / Making Lemonade / Crush Ice 15.2.2022: 01:00 h @ Little Lemonade Stand Inc. / Making Lemonade / Prepare Fruit


Integration with other tools

No matter which other tools you work with in your projects: TimeChunks integrates seamlessly almost everywhere thanks to flexible filters and simple copy & paste.


Editing entries

Individual entries can be edited in the detail view. Entries can also be moved by editing the path.

Adding further information to times and entries

Of course, it is also possible to add further information to individual entries in the form of a description. You can also add billing information (e.g. po numbers, supplier numbers, etc.) and define if you want to display the information in the billing export or if you only want to use it for your internal purposes.

Formatting billing information and description with Markdown

Description and billing information can also be formatted with Markdown:

URLs are automatically converted to links. With [http://www.danielulrich.com](website) links can be added manually.
