Chrometa Feature Reviews

25 reviewers had the following to say about Chrometa's features:

Brahm Dorst

Not great, but still the best passive time tracking system for now

2018-08-22

However, functionality and stability fundamentals of the desktop app seem to be taking a backseat to fancy new features like Android apps for your mobile device.

Pros

Old interface is intuitive interface and efficient for quickly categorizing automatically recorded time between a large number of projects.

Cons

It freezes and stops recording time without any notification that it has stopped working, though this happens less frequently if you regularly restart windows.

Great Chrometa !

2017-01-02

Yet, to be 2017 dream app Chrometa needs some improvement on the invoicing and project part. Integration with Quickbooks online is much appreciated.

Pros

- Effortless time tracking = it collects automatically your computer activity - one of the only app that tracks your phone calls on android (ie: Apple still block these type of tracking ); - Rules = many works when setting up the app = no more data entry after a few time as almost everything is automated!

Cons

- can't enter the budget amount for a project - invoicing - yearly export have to be requested

I wasn't sure I'd like it at first, but now I'm glad I stuck with it

2015-07-15

I'm so bad at remembering to start a timer and stop it, and am constantly switching between tasks--this makes keeping track of what I'm working on much easier!

Pros

Don't have to turn it on/off can "teach" it to automatically tag certain sites, tasks

Cons

for me, it was a bit of a learning curve, getting used to it had to build up the habit of documenting activities

Most accurate and efficient way to track my time

2017-02-14

With Chrometa installed on my computer, my hours are automatically being logged.

Pros

It's the only browser history tracker I've found that also tells you how much time you spent on what website, but it also logs phone activity and computer activity.

Cons

I need to research it more, but I think those features were originally designed for attorneys, which is probably why they don't make sense to me.

Work less & earn more

2017-06-14

Pros

At the end of your daily routine you assign what you did to jobs/projects. It's a question of 2-5 minutes and you're done.

Cons

It's a pitty that there is no possibility to add third party costs of a project.

Easy and quick to go back and tag your jobs

2016-07-28

I was using another Time/App Tracking software package (Time Tracker by Open Hour) for more than a year, and while it originally appeared to fill my needs, it sometimes didn't record the exact name of the file I was working on (only the name of the software), so I had to do some guess work on which job was which. ...

Pros

Quick and easy to tag all jobs and activities. Prompts you to log 'away time' when the computer is idle (phone calls, meetings, lunch)

Cons

I found it difficult moving from a calendar-based interface to a list-type... but after a couple of weeks that passed.

Chrometa is a must for any lawyer/ Auto time keeping makes billing a breeze.

2009-11-28

It is scary how much time lawyers forget to bill or fail to realize.

Pros

Automatically tracks what you do on your computer, making tracking your time and figuring out what you did all day a breeze.

Cons

There isn't really a way to modify the length of time for the automatic tracking.

Great way to recapture "lost" time!

2016-07-25

Rules teach it how to categorize work to clients and projects, and now I know exactly how much time I'm spending on each project for each client, instead of just trying to remember.

Pros

Captures every moment of your work, along with enough details to be able to categorize it.

Cons

UI needs some work to help make it a bit more intuitive.

Manage Time better than anything.

2019-05-03

The part where we can see the automatic time is awesome and way it handles it is good.

Pros

You can then analyze, prioritize or cut out unnecessary time spent accordingly.

Cons

However easy it is, there is some lagging in the user interface. The interface seems like old fashioned.

2016-06-23

The integration is a little awkward, but the tracking is very helpful.

Pros

Very affordable, simple to use and tracks well. It even tracks my time in Word Perfect documents, which is something I've found unavailable in other software.

Cons

It's not very smoothly integrated into Quickbooks desktop, and I prefer to keep my billing in that program.

Great help for an independent consultant

2016-06-15

I am independent consultant and work with multiple clients at one time.

Pros

keeps track of the time I spend working on a document, email or website and not how long it is open; Rules means I don't have to tell it what client the document is for - it does it automatically

Cons

There is some delay of when the time appears in the system.
