Hi there! My name is Yosef Anan, and I work in a company, my director asked me how much time you took in work? He asks me to determines the work's Cost per hour! Sometimes it takes me to work on a project for several days with other projects so I can't know exactly how much time it took. Is there any prosess that help me to know the exact time I took during working on adobe softwares? (In Active work status, not in opening window of app and not working on). Can you take my case in mind so in future adobe software have this feature in the new version of adobe software?
I keep a written log of my hours in case the subject ever comes up with a client.
Not a digital text file, but a real written record kept in a notebook with sewn in pages - no spiral binders for this!
I just note the time I start and the time I stop for each session. I can always go back later and do math to get the total hours, but it honestly never came up!
Still, in my opinion, nothing beats a written record.
>Active work status, not in opening window of app and not working on
Just how is a program supposed to know that you are working, or not, when you have the program active on your screen?
When I have a document open, and I am not actually typing, I am still THINKING about what I am doing
While it may be possible to keep track of the start/stop times when you have a document up front on your screen, I know of no way for a program to know what you are doing to that open document... or even if you are actually at your computer
As suggested... keep a written log book
As every attorney and accountant will tell you, you must keep a written client log-in/out record to track both client billable hours vs non-billable hours. Time begun, time ended.
I used to keep logs for everything I did throughout the day. When my work on 1 client project was interrupted to work on another, I had to mark the time on my sheets. At the end of each day, we handed our logs in to the administrator whose job it was to enter the hours into our accounting software.
