FRSTimeTrack

Purpose

FRSTimeTrack makes it easy for you to keep track of your time spent on projects or clients.

Why Did We Create FRSTimeTrack?

If you do consulting work, a quick and simple solution is needed to help you keep track of your time, especially if you have more than one client. Non-billable projects may also need to be kept track of. For example, if you have a hobby and you would like to know just how many hours you have spent on a particular project, use FRSTimeTrack to easily track the hours.

Key Features

  • Track date, time, and whether or not a task is billable and/or taxable.
  • Intuitive entry via a built-in stopwatch timer.
  • Quickly generate invoices.
  • Invoices are remembered, for quick recall in the future.
  • Maintain data for any number of projects.

FRSTimeTrack In Action

The classic Windows desktop look of the application makes it immediately intuitive to use. You enter your task's specifics in the main window's grid. The stopwatch timer can be used to time your task, and when stopped, a task entry is automatically generated. Add a project via the "Projects | Add..." menu command, and view invoices via the "View | Invoices..." menu command.

When you start FRSTimeTrack, click on the "Projects | Add..." menu command to add your first project. The only bit of data that is required is a unique name for the project. The other information in that window is optional. If the project is for a client, then entering the client's contact information may be useful, and that information will be used in any invoices you generate with FRSTimeTrack. The next time you start FRSTimeTrack, the last-used project is automatically loaded.

if you want to keep track of the exact time spent, you can use the stopwatch timer of the main window. Don't add a task; simply start the timer. When the work is done, or you are done working on the project for the day, press the square stop button of the stopwatch timer. FRSTimeTrack will automatically add a task entry to the main grid, with all the pertinent information set. All you have to do is enter the task's description, whether or not it is billable, and any notes you want to keep (notes are not shown on invoices)

FRSTimeTrack Trial Period

FRSTimeTrack comes with a one-time, 21-day trial period during which you can use the full functionality of the application for free. There are no artificial limitations imposed within the application during that time period. When the free trial period is over, you must purchase a license for FRSTimeTrack to continue to use it. All of the data you entered during the free trial period will still be there after you have paid for your license. There is no separate download required after you have purchased your license. The status bar indicates how many days you have remaining in your free trial period.

FRSTimeTrack Privacy Policy

It's Your Data!

FRSTimeTrack data and settings are stored in binary files on your computer. Our products never upload your data to our server nor any third-party server. Our products do not report your interaction with our products to our server nor any third-party server. An Internet connection is not required to use our products. Please note that individuals who have access to your physical computer could potentially have access to your copy of FRSTimeTrack and the data you store in it. Always protect your computer from outside access by setting a strong password on it.

Uploads

FRSTimeTrack does not upload any information to the Fourth Ray Software web site nor to any third-party server. We do reserve the right to communicate your FRSTimeTrack license number during a product upgrade check in a future version, so that we may verify your paid-for version. However, this is currently not being done.

Automatic Upgrades

When automatic upgrading is enabled (under your control), FRSTimeTrack connects to the Fourth Ray Software server, if your computer has an Internet connection active, to determine if a new version of FRSTimeTrack has been released by Fourth Ray Software. It compares the latest version number listed on the server against the version you have installed. If a new version has been released, the new software installation program will be downloaded to your computer, and FRSTimeTrack will automatically run that upgrade when you close the application (you will see a notification window). See the application's documentation center for how to disable automatic upgrades, if so desired.
