A typical day with your MicroManager

Normally, time tracking consists of you having to write down what you have worked on and how many hours you have spent doing it. If you are really diligent you will record your time right before you leave work for the day. You may also record your time a little less often... let's say once a week. Although, a lot of people are so focused on multitasking in their work that logging their time is one of the last things they get around to. Next thing you know, it's the end of the month and you know what means... your hours are due.

If this scenario has hit you before, you are definitely not alone. About this time you are then feverishly trying to remember what you have been doing for the past month. It is indeed an impossible task. Especially, if the reason you did not record your hours in the first place was because you were so busy to begin with.

But let's say between answering emails, instant messages, answering phone calls, collaborating in meetings, and actually getting stuff done, you consistently saw this little chat-like window show up asking what you are doing right then and there.

You simple just answer with a simple response and categorize the response under a project and go on you way, practically forgetting you were even prompted to begin with.

Then, after 30 minutes, your prompted again. This time with the response you had before still in place. You are still working on the same task so you just hit enter and again continue and forget about it.

After your day of working and effortlessly logging your activities you shutdown your PC and head home. And day after day, you keep doing this and finally when it's time to log your hours, you remember that MicroManager has all this information already.

So you go to File > Export... and run your report for this month. You then get a nice report brought up in Excel (or spreadsheet software of choice). You can easily copy this information to your company's time logging software and be on your way to doing real work again.
That's how MicroManager can simplify your work life.
