How to Track the Time You Spend Online

TimeSprite supports FogBugz time tracking

TimeSprite can now exchange time tracking data with FogBugz Version 6 from Fog Creek Software. It uses the FogBugz API to send and receive information about cases and recorded time. FogBugz uses time tracking data in its new Evidence Based Scheduling functions.

TimeSprite makes the FogBugz time tracking significantly easier to use.

There are several ways you can use TimeSprite with FogBugz:

TimeSprite tracks when you are actually using your computer, so you can get more accurate time records.

When you want to send the data to FogBugz, click the arrow to upload the data. Intervals which have not yet been sent will be uploaded.

You can track your time in FogBugz, and combine the records with TimeSprite’s automatic tracking. Let TimeSprite automatically track what you are working on, and periodically download the data from FogBugz. You can then see the FogBugz case information alongside TimeSprite’s record of which applications and documents you were using.
