What is KTimeTracker
KTimeTracker tracks time spent on various tasks. It is useful for tracking billable hours and can report the hours logged by task and day. This time history can be exported to a comma-delimited text file for import into other billing and/or project management tools. KTimeTracker detects when your keyboard and mouse are idle and can associate different tasks with different desktops, two tools that can help keep the timer running on the correct task.
What KTimeTracker can do for you
The current stable version of KTimeTracker (4.1) can:
- organize and stopwatch tasks, subtasks
KTimeTracker allows you to organize and stopwatch your work. You can put your daily todo-list into that tool. You can group your work by tasks, subtask and n-th level tasks, meaning that every subtask can still have a subtask below it, up to some 1000 levels.
- edit task history and comments
KTimeTracker allows you to edit your task's history and to put a comment for every event that you have stopped:
KTimeTracker 4 has the following behavior options:
Up to KDE 3.1 (incl.), flat files were used to store the data. From KDE 3.2 on, the iCal format is used, but flat files can still be imported until KDE 4. With KDE 4, the custom fields X-KDE-karm-duration, X-KDE-karm-totalTaskTime, X-KDE-karm-totalSessionTime and X-KDE-karm-desktopList were renamed to X-KDE-KTimeTracker-duration and the respective other names. KTimeTracker 4 can still read karm iCal files, but not the other way round.
Does it scale
KTimeTracker scales well and it regularly tested with a 1.2 MB file (https://bugs.kde.org/attachment.cgi?id=14413&action=view) available from (https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=110523). A ktimetracker benchmark is available from here.
