ClickWork is a no-nonsense, very-easy-to-use Time Tracker.
Important: ClickWork is no longer supported.
ClickWork enables you to track the time spent on different activities.
- Step one is the creation of an activity, which will create a transparent pushbutton, called an activity button in ClickWork.
- Next, you drag the activity button to another spot in the window.
- Then, simply click on the activity button and ClickWork will start tracking the time spent on that activity.
- Simply click once more on the activity button to stop the tracking. Or click on another activity button to end the tracking of the current activity and start tracking the clicked activity.
- Simply drag an activity button to the trashcan, once you no longer need to track that activity.
- Essentially, that's all.
But of course, there are many very-easy-to-use features and reporting facilities. In addition to various obvious activity reports for management you can also print statistical reports and even display graphs, either within ClickWork or using Excel.
ClickWork is multi-user. Moreover, it enables you to let certain users share the same table and let another group of users share another table. This construction is ideal for use in a department. The department uses a single installation of ClickWork and each member of a group in the department uses the group's table. Thus, in theory, reporting can be made on the department level, on the group level and on the user level. (Version 1.4 only supports reporting on the user level. Reporting on the department/group level is implemented in version 1.5 as a 'manager' feature.)
In version 1.5 users can be given access to only a subset of the functions. The possibilities are almost limitless, without becoming complicated. Simply define some 'access profiles' and assign them to the users.
Also new in version 1.5 is 'password on entry'. It is disabled in the default access profile, but it can simply be activated.
Perhaps the most important new feature in version 1.5 is the manager option. A 'manager' has the right to view and manage the data of a span of users. This enables the manager to produce multi-user reports and graphs. Also, the manager can build a predefined Activities List. Users can choose from this list when creating an activity button.
ClickWork is meant for experienced, professional PC-users who spend a substantial part of their working day at a computer. For this reason and because ClickWork is very intuitive, the helpfile is kept minimal and only contains useful tips about features that are less obvious. But don't underestimate it. The help is always context sensitive and in version 1.5 it even fully adapts to the user's access profile, meaning that no help texts are available with regard to options that are not available to the user.
ClickWork is no longer supported. You can still download the Trial Version, which is full featured and without any time limit. You will occasionally see a text that it is a trial version and reports also display that text.
In case you decide to use it anyway in a more definitive manner and need to add additional users, you are free to ask for more, free License Keys. In essence, a license key tells ClickWork to allow concurrent use by x users within the department.
Disclaimer: The current version 1.5 is not robust enough in case you connect your laptop to a server via wlan AND have the DATA of ClickWork on that server. Any temporary loss of connection will result in a loss of 'file handles'. It will, however, not result in data loss. Rather, you will have to restart ClickWork.
Perhaps a more robust and modernized version will be worked on this year.
