It is intended as an aid to accurately complete timesheets (whether on paper or by entry into a computer system) and does not itself generate timesheets. We feel that timesheets should be completed by a human to ensure that customers are not overcharged - upsetting customers that way is never a good thing to do.
Task Timer is very lightweight and can be closed once a task has been chosen for timing. In fact, if your battery dies while you are timing a chargeable journey, for example, you will still get an accurate timing providing you connect power again (and stop the timer) when you reach your destination. If your customer is a hospital and you have to switch your phone off, this could be very useful.
Future versions will include:
• Lock screen widget to allow starting and stopping a timer without unlocking the device.
• Drill down into a task on the Durations Report to check how the total figure was calculated.
