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.
The current stable version of KTimeTracker (4.1) can:
KTimeTracker allows you to organize your work like a todo-list. You can group your work by tasks and subtask. Every subtask can still have a subtask below it, up to some 1000 levels.
Whenever you start working on a new task, just double-click the corresponding task in your todo-list. You will see a clock appearing next to this task indicating its time is now recorded.
KTimeTracker allows you to edit your task's history and to put a comment for every event that you have stopped:

There have been 3 file format changes in the over 10-year-history of ktimetracker:
|KDE version||ktimetracker file|
|3.2-3.5||iCal files with X-KDE-karm fields, import possibility for flat files|
|4.0-||iCal files with X-KDE-ktimetracker fields, automated import for iCal files with X-KDE-karm fields|
Because of the iCal file format, ktimetracker is compatible with korganizer. You can even work synchroneously on one file with korganizer and ktimetracker. If one program changes the file, the updates will be propagated to the other application automatically.
