Track working hours

Recommended Posts

Dear Affinity Team,

I'm in the process of creating a huge ass portfolio of my works. During the process it came to my mind, that some readers and customers might be interested to know, how much time I have spend on each of my works. Obviously, it would be a solution to measure things on my own (which seems hard to apply for previous projects) but I figured, it might be a neat feature, if the Affinity Suit had some sort of tracking system incorporated. Surely, it can't be said, that the time a document has been opened, equals the time actually spend working on it (idle time, coffee breaks and so on), but it makes for a reasonable start. To further improve the accuracy, two ideas came to my mind:

  1. Track the users actvity and create an average APM. If the downtime gets out of hand, take it as a break. Show Document opened. Estimated work time.
  2. Give the user an interface to start, pause, continue the tracking.



Cheers, Jan

At least on the Mac, there are some apps doing this. I've seen some that can track several apps at the same time, and calculate the time a window has been on the foreground.

If I'm not wrong the iPad does this at system level. Look for something like 'time tracker', or the like.
