How do you track your billable hours?

over 4 years ago from , Graphic Designer

Hi everyone, my first time on DN here!

I've been exploring different software to track billable hours, and I'm not sure which one is the best.

Right now I use a basic note file for every project and log hours as I go as accurately as possible. But I'd like to discover a more efficient way to log things like travel, meetings, accounting, calls etc.

What's your preferred method?

    Using And.co which has a nifty timer, among other things. It's free and also lets you accept online payments through Stripe.

    You can Use Tyme2 oder Timely. You can aldo checkout some obline billing and accounting services and combine them. For billing i use debitoor.

    I know it's not really what you're asking for, but I never have and never will charge by the hour. It never really made sense to me. I'd suggest watching this:

      Thanks Todd!

      I've actually watched many videos by Chris Do. He's brilliant, and I generally agree with his theories on hours vs. value.

      For me, this is more of a personal tracking where I want to know what I'm spending more time on and how I can allocate / improve. For example, if I'm spending way too much time in meetings, or on a single project I'd like to be somewhat aware of that.
