What can you use the app for?

Clocking It is a time and task management tool. Users receive access to a dashboard that contains widgets the user can customize, add or remove. Each update is made in real time so users can see recently edited tasks and completed items. Schedules are displayed using interactive Gantt charts. Users can build an ongoing task list and sort it using filters. View options allow users to save the filters they use often for quick access. Clocking It gives users a place to upload and store files so team members can always access them. At the end of each month, the user can run a time sheet report which can be downloaded in a CSV format.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Clocking It was created to help professionals and business fill the gap between working independently and working with a consultant. The concept behind Clocking It was formed after an intense six day Ruby on Rails learning session. The service hasn’t received as much attention as some of its competitors, but it has received some positive comments from users and reviewers. The application was designed by Erlend and Ellen Simonsen in Oslo, Norway.

What are the differences to other apps?

Clocking It provides users with all the typical project and time management tools users need. The service doesn’t bring anything new or cutting edge to the table. That doesn’t mean it’s not appealing. Clocking It offers everything a user could need to tack time, tasks and overall project progress in one place. Users who prefer Gantt charts and a simple interface may appreciate what Clocking It has to offer. Others may prefer the sleeker design of other task and time management tools.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

Clocking It may intimidate new users who are not accustomed to this type of application. The interface is organized, but contains a number of elements and little eye candy. The user should plan to take a few minutes to explore Clocking It before committing to using it. The application adds hints of bright orange that add a little variety, but not quite enough to make the design memorable.

How does the registration process work?

A new user can try Clocking It by clicking the orange “Sign Up!” link in the upper, right hand corner of the homepage. The form on the following page asks for a username, password, real name, email address, language, time zone, company name and desired Clocking It URL. The user is automatically directed to the login area and can sign in to their account without taking further action.

What does it cost to use the application?

Clocking It welcomes all users for free. There are no subscription fees and the user doesn’t have to make any purchases. This is a good thing because there are many competitors that offer a more visually stimulating experience. Free is the right price to convince users to give the service a try to see if it is a good fit for their team or company.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Clocking It is a helpful tool for any professional or team that needs an economical way to manage tasks and time. The application isn’t for everyone. The interface leaves something to be desired however the features list includes a number of vital functions that can make life easier for users. The application is free, which gives it an edge in the eyes of users operating on a tight budget.
