Time Tracker for Tasks: Why You Need It and How It Helps Improve Efficiency
To find out what exactly you spend your valuable time on, you can write down every step you take, set alarms every 30 minutes or just use our task tracker — that way you’ll know how many hours and minutes you spend on each task on your list, so you can optimize your time.
The benefits of timekeeping
It helps estimate time expenditures for each task
But the calendar can’t help you understand how much time each task truely took. It’s especially important to accurately measure actual time expenditures when you’re working on the Time & Material scheme. The efficiency of your work depends on the actual time you spend on performing the task. The time tracker for tasks records the hours and minutes spent on each task — it’s always clear how much time every task took you.
It helps you plan your resource for new tasks
For example, if you know that it took you 10−12 hours to do a review article in the past, you don't set a deadline for tomorrow. If you know that it takes 30 hours to create a landing page, you don't think you can do it in three days. And if you know that you write an average of 10 pages a day, you don't deceive yourself and others that the draft of the book will be ready in a couple of weeks.
It reveals chronophages
Anything can be a chronophage. For example, a sudden call that took you out of your work flow and then it took a while to get concentrated again. Or casual Internet surfing, when you were looking for something relevant to the task, but you got distracted by something interesting, yet immaterial. Once you know how much time it took to complete the task, you no longer want to fall into the clutches of the chronophiles. It’s easy as a pie to track hours and minutes you spend on tasks with the task tracker.

How the Singularity time tracker works
Statistics are added to the task automatically if:
- You set the timer to stop before the end of the interval, the tracker remembers the number of minutes you worked and shows the total time spent on the task. If you restart the tracker, a new 25-minute interval will begin, which is automatically added to the total time of the task.
- Mark the task as completed. When the task is completed, the tracker stops automatically — the statistics don’t disappear: it is always visible on the right side of the task, or when you click on it.
- Complete the task for today. The tracker remembers the number of minutes spent on the task for today — tomorrow you will be able to continue working on it: the tracker adds the new period of time to the time you already worked. In the future, we are going to add advanced statistics that shows daily time expenditures.
- Delete a task. It will go to the trash along with the statistics — you can always restore all the data by recovering the task from the trash.
