About Chrometa

The "magic" of Chrometa is that it runs in the background of your PC and/or Mac, quietly making note of your activities. It's like having your very own personal timekeeper. When you open or compose an email, Chrometa will capture that activity. Same for documents you draft, web research you do, and even phone and meeting time -- everything is captured passively without you lifting a finger.

Pros: Just started to use Chrometa and I'm finding it really usefull. It helps you to keep track of what you are working on. For a pearson that works in multiple projects at once, it is ideal. Will try it on my mobile device as well to see how it works!

Cons: I Didn't try all the features yet. But the ones I tried worked fine for me. Just think they should have discounts for teams.

One of the best time tracking softwares. It tracks everything you do in the background.

Pros: Great app...I like it because it's free at the first place. It helps me calculate time spent on the mobile phone, computer and other devices now I can spend more time doing other things.

Cons: I don't like it because it doesn't work offline so people who don't have access to Internet aren't able to use it

Overall: It helps me calculate time spent on the mobile phone, computer and other devices, so now I can spend more time doing other things, like hanging out with my friends and family.

Pros: Timekeeping was never be easier! I'm a student and my mum always saying that i spent too much of my time on my smartphone. Now i see it and i will try to plan my time :)

Cons: I't is a bit difficult to understend what is this app for and many people didn't hear about it. You should advertise it more. :/

My experience has been great so far. I hope I will learn to use it even better.

Pros: I like the time-tracking, because I am self-employed and have several ongoing projects most of the time.

Cons: The entire time I've had this service, I've not been able to add a second device. The onscreen help icon is a chat room, but the help has thus far not helped with any questions . I wish there was a central help desk to call to ask questions. (There is, but they don't answer the phone or return calls.)

Pros: I work with multiple clients and need to track my work for each. Chrometa tracks everything I do on all my work-related computers and devices. When I work on my laptop, I can later be on my desktop viewing Chrometa. There, it'll show the time I spent on my laptop by activity or a summary for each device. Sometimes I get wrapped up in what I'm doing that I'd forget to note the time when I start doing work for a client. Chrometa saves my behind as it shows the time I started. I've tried timers, but ended up forgetting to turn them on or off. I've yet to find anything that works better than this. I went to look up how long I've been using Chrometa. It's been seven years! I think that speaks volumes.

Pros: I love the fact that Chrometa captures every second of your time usage and indicates the what programs/websites you're using. The reports are also extremely helpful to see where most of your time is going.

Cons: The website links recorded for your time on Facebook are often general and don't really tell you exactly where you've been or what you've been doing - I'd love to see more specificity.

Pros: Chrometa is great because it tracks automatically in the background. You just do what you have to do. 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. And oh boy: every minute is recorded, you don't have to figure out when you did what and how long. You have it EXACT... no guessing, no hassle. And as you know precisely what you did and when you did it, you bill every single minute. Which means you earn more, and possibly have to work less to still get your usual payday.

Cons: It's a pitty that there is no possibility to add third party costs of a project. Would come very handy as the tool allows to generate bills. But as I'm not able to include third party costs I have as a freelancer (suppliers, project partners etc.) it's not the one-stop-shop. You need a moment to get used to the UI, but when you use it on a daily basis that's a snap...

Pros: Prior to Chrometa I must have tried dozens of applications in the quest for a user friendly, intuitive and painless way to track my professional time. Program works in the background, no need to start and stop time on various events. If I am away from my computer(s) for a period of time a pop-up is waiting for me to track time away. Feature rich and continues to improve year after year.

Cons: Chrometa's iPhone App requires punching in and out before and after phone calls. As a result I find this a bit cumbersome.

Pros: This app logs the time I spend automatically, without me having to constantly update the timer. Since I charge my clients for time spent and I multi-task a lot, it's a real benefit not to have to worry about time logs.

Cons: A few missing integrations (Google Inbox, Franz, Skype, Wrike, etc.) A little pricey for multiple devices

Pros: Chrometa actually works. As promised it monitors your desktop and phone and when you are ready to log in to Chrometa, all the work you have done appears in lists ready to be assigned to each matter. I had imported my list of current clients and matter names and so it was just a matter of 'Moving to Project' each of the transactions that were saved. The outlook emails, webpages, word docs, adobe pdfs and other work were easy to assign. The keyword search improved this experience. I was pleasantly surprised to see how busy I have been, and seeing the occasional distractions listed also motivated me to stay on task.

Cons: There were a large number of 'windows' transactions that are neither billable- nor particularly intelligible. The outlook emails only show the Subject line. The Skype entries do not indicate to whom the calls were made or received. Documents, Notepad, etc, are listed using the saved name of the document. This is not always clear. Having to Move to Project - the first week or first month is fairly labor intensive. I think I should have been assigning the project name every day. Live and Learn!

Pros: Never had the opportunity to try it out

Cons: Incredibly terrible customer service. Tried email, phone and multiple live chats and never once got a phone call back.

Overall: I was recommended Chrometa by another company I do business with. I was excited to give the program a try for our shared admin timekeeping. I started a live chat on their website and was told someone would call me back. After a few days, I emailed them and left a voicemail asking for someone to please call me back that I was interested in their product. A few more day went by and nothing. So back to the live chat. I was told again that someone would call me back. After another couple days, I went back to the live chat to ask why I could not get anyone to talk to me about their products. This time the agent just ignored my chat and never responded. If they are like this when you try to purchase their product, I can't imagine what they would be like after you did!

Recommendations to other buyers: No

Comments: I tried almost all time tracking apps that are available this days. Did my research, tested them for couple of days... Some of them are way too complicated, and are more for big firms..and some do not have features I need. I have been with Chrometa over 2 years and no plans to change. I am graphic designer, have my own business, and heavily rely on time tracking for my billing. Sometimes I work on couple of projects at the same time, and this app tracks them all. Tracks all my meetings, phone calls, consultations, all the software I use and time that I spend reading and writing the emails... and all in the background. It reminds me when I come back from the meeting to log in time... tracks my personal time.... breaks, lunches.. lets me decide are they business related or just a simple break. The best part is... the company listen to their users and constantly improve and add new features. Customer service is impeccable, and just a click away. A real person, dedicated to help you, no matter how "strange" the question is.

Pros: Intuitive, Easy to use, Great Customer Service, Affordable.

Cons: I can't think of any... the app does what I am paying for.

Recommendations to other buyers: Try 30 day free trial and after couple of days you will feel like you are HOME. And if something is not clear, click the chat button at the bottom and ask a question, you will be surprised with a level of agility to help and solve the problem.

Comments: With Chrometa installed on my computer, my hours are automatically being logged. I don't have to tell it to start recording or remember when I started and when I stopped- it's already working in the background while I work. All I have to do is review the entries and categorize them to the appropriate task or client. Whether it's online, working on a document, or on my phone, it's all there.

Pros: I don't have to think about how much time I'm spending on something- with Chrometa, I know. 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. Time can be tracked, categorized, downloaded, and even billed using Chrometa. Once it's installed, you just go to work- no need to turn anything on or activate it when you need to track something.

Cons: There is a bit of a delay on tracking so you have to come back to Chrometa a few hours later sometimes to categorize something to the appropriate client or task. They have Rules which is an auto-tagging feature that can help with this but if you use the same apps/tools for a lot of different clients, then you can't really take advantage of this feature for most things. Also, the Tasks and Annotations still don't quite make sense to me, but they're supposed to be a way for you to tag and categorize things. 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.

Recommendations to other buyers: Take advantage of the integrations and you can gather data from all your devices and tools, and get the most out of Chrometa.

Pros: Tracks all activity while using your computer
Can track away time as well so long as you use this feature

Cons: Away time must be consistently tracked in order to keep it accurate

Overall: One of the best time tracking softwares. It tracks everything you do in the background. Great for taking activity while working on your computer or tracking time for when you arrive or leave the office or miscellaneous away time. If you use it consistently it is great for making sure that you never miss another billable hour again.

Recommendations to other buyers: Use it consistently and can be a great supplement or primary time tracking software

Comments: I've used Chrometa for about a month. Previously, I had been very competitor's software. Now my billable hours are logged & it's very easy to provide the necessary justification for my research time. Would definitely suggest Chrometa for anyone who wants an automated time-tracking solution.

Pros: Captures all of your work on tracked devices Simple reconciliation Intuitive

Cons: Interface is a bit clunky Reporting Could Be Better

Comments: We just switch for Chrometa and really enjoyed the app! We definitely recommend it to companies that need to identify where staff/managing director spend theirs time. You will also be able to identify time well spent and wasted. Yet, to be 2017 dream app Chrometa needs some improvement on the invoicing and project part. Integration with Quickbooks online is much appreciated. We will definitely write a few words on Chrometa to our blog!

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

Comments: Chrometa is awesome because it tracks everything. Keep it on 24/7 and you can see where your business hours AND your personal time goes. My only issue with Chrometa is that when I go through my time tracking and classify time it does take a while. But I'm sure that I were to use it several times a week rather than once per week this would be a less time consuming process.

Pros: Captures all computer activities Many helpful video tutorials

Cons: Lengthy/complicated to sort time into categories

Recommendations to other buyers: Take the 30 day trial. If you can't get into the habit of *at least* weekly Chrometa time tracking processing then consider another, less comprehensive, app.

Comments: I use Chrometa for Mac. It has truly changed my life as a personal historian (I write people¿s memoirs and biographies for their families). Keeping track of time with online or desktop timers was useless because I so often forgot to start or stop the timer. I am frequently interrupted, so it was very hard to be accurate with time. However, this app captures everything I do for my clients and even codes it to the proper job. The only thing I have to code myself is websites, which is easy to do in the Timeline view. Today I guessed that I¿d done about two hours work for a client, but Chrometa said three and a half. It¿s really a godsend. It allows me to concentrate on my work, knowing Chrometa is keeping time, so I¿m more relaxed as well as charging more truly for hours worked. You can have Chrometa record the exact number of minutes you work, or have it round to six or fifteen minute increments, etc. I use the one minute because Chrometa always rounds up. I wish there was an option to use the mathematical rules of rounding rather than always rounding up. Otherwise, I love it and it¿s more than worth the cost. A tremendous support for anyone who needs to keep track of time by job or by client. Just excellent. Kathy E, St. Louis

Pros: Relaxing: you don't have to worry about keeping track of time because Chrometa does an excellent job of that.

Cons: When rounding increments of time, Chrometa always rounds up. I'm not comfortable with this because it could result in overcharging clients, so I have it set to record exact number of minutes. I wish they had an option that would use the mathematical rules of rounding.

Recommendations to other buyers: Essential for anyone self employed, freelancers, etc.

Comments: 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. ... An almost impossible task to do a week later. And it took forever to refresh and update the data, so I was pulling my hair out at how much unbillable time I was spending on this task. Arghhh!! After a month's trial, I'm convinced Chrometa has solved these pain points - it shows the file name worked on and you can set rules for key words for regular jobs so it automatically tags them. Plus it's so much quicker to tag and tally your work (even a week later!). So now I've got more time available to work on billable jobs! The big win though is that it ensures you charge for the time that never got recorded properly previously - like individual emails being written for a job or research online on a website. So much of this was not traceable, so very difficult to account for and bill on to a client. So it usually wasn't. The other surprise was when I originally installed the software it wasn't recording properly. Tech support responded reasonably quickly, arranged a time to connect (via email) and once agreed on, I got to speak with a tech (via the screen sharing interface) as we changed the setting together on my screen to make everything work seamlessly. He was in London, I'm in Australia. I was pretty impressed with process. Gave me lots of peace of mind that if I have another problem down the track, they'll be there to help me.

Pros: Tracks all files and apps used. 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.

Recommendations to other buyers: Great for freelancers who do EVERY part of the business from reception to production. It accurately logs what you're working on - even with all the interruptions that happen in your day!

Great way to recapture "lost" time!

Comments: Out of everyone on our team, I've been the worst about remembering to track my time... Chrometa has remedied that... 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.

Recommendations to other buyers: Take care in setting up your preferences in the beginning to minimize edits later.

Comments: I use Chrometa to track my time and create entries which I turn into billing records and invoices in Quickbooks desktop. The integration is a little awkward, but the tracking is very helpful. Overall I find this an excellent tool for my solo law practice.

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.

Comments: I am independent consultant and work with multiple clients at one time. This app is one of the best tools i have tried to help me keep track of my 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: Could be more flexibility in using the invoice system. There is some delay of when the time appears in the system.

Comments: I use Chrometa to help keep track of my time in my law practice. It's often easy to move on to another task and forget to start or stop a time tracker. Chrometa is great because it works in the background and keeps track of the time I spent automatically. I simply go through the time entries at the end of the day, notate them, and export them into my case management software. Makes time tracking much easier and must less of a pain.

This software saves time

Comments: I have been searching up and down for an app that would assist me with my timekeeping by giving me the ability to backtrack what I've actually done with my time. I was disappointed by many other apps because they required me to have to remember to punch in/out or start/stop a timer in order to keep a log of activity... But the problem was, with that method, most activities were lost, forgotten and had to rely on guestimates whenever a distraction pulled me away from what I was working on at that moment. And working with an employer who uses an honor system for timekeeping and payroll really does deserve to receive an honest and accurate report. Chrometa took away the questionable by providing providing a reliable and traceable report that could be counted on to not only total my hours for me but also my pay...ten thumbs up Chrometa!

Pros: My fave is the background tracker. The fact that I can look back on every website and application and revisit the time spent there is perfect for my work!

Cons: The only con's I've found so far is that the ability to transfer the info into a breakdown document hasn't been easy. But I've managed by using print PDF and screenshot.

Love it

Comments: Love the product. It pays for itself with that one email or call made on the fly that you forget to log or forget how much time it took. I find that they busier I am that my exposure to lost income increases as manually tracking time logs is very challenging. This product helps me realize all of the income I work hard to generate. Plus it help legitimize your time to the client and eliminates doubt from them perspective.

Pros: Tracks my time better than I can, legitimizes my invoices

Wonderful App!

Comments: I was always hesitant to use Chrometa due to the price, but then I figured all of the other programs I had pieced together to accomplish some of the same things. The best features are the Android app (finally I can catch and bill for text messages) and the Outlook add-in - I spend 60% to 80% of my day in email, and I was losing so much income because I would get frustrated figuring my time, and just bill clients a tenth of an hour no matter how much time I would spend emailing them.

Pros: Integrations with a number of programs, ability to further automate by setting rules

Cons: None that I have found!

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

Comments: I've been using Chrometa for my time-keeping on various projects, and now that I'm getting into the hang of it, I am really loving the ease of it! 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! And at first I balked at the price, but now that I'm seeing the time savings, I'm making up for the price easily.

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

Simple, seamless and very useful.

Comments: The people who made this software seem to understand time keepers very well. It has everything you need to keep track of your day, and even keep track of your staff and make sure your practice remains productive. It helps me bill more so it ends up paying for itself. I would like to see integration with RingCentral to keep track of telephone calls and text messages.

Pros: Easy, works, pays for itself. I highly recommend this software for lawyers.

Cons: Although the software is solid, the UI could use some work. iPhone app is limited compared to Android app. Needs to work with RingCentral.

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

Pros: Automatically tracks what you do on your computer, making tracking your time and figuring out what you did all day a breeze. Simple, clean, intuitive interface. Powerful Excel export feature allows you to export your time and easily enter it into a billing system. The software also allows you to sort by client and matter number and add new ones, making it very easily to sort your time in an efficient manner. The software also handles away time by allowing you to manually enter time entries for phone calls and meetings. Support is friendly, a phone call away and the tech guys there will walk you through anything. Chrometa is a lifesaver.

Cons: There isn't really a way to modify the length of time for the automatic tracking. Also, an interface with my phone system would be great

Overall: Chrometa is a must for any lawyer. It is simple, powerful and easy to use. It is scary how much time lawyers forget to bill or fail to realize. Chrometa solves this problem and pays for itself within hours.

A simple elegant solution

Pros: Seemless
Behind the scenes
Time Saver
Productivity Enhancer

Cons: Minor bugs - but routinely being fixed

Overall: I would definitely recommend it to anybody that charges by the hour, or anyone that would want to know how long they spend on tasks or how they can increase billable time.

Try it for 30 days, if you like it buy it. Its what I tell my friends and colleagues. You have to try it, for some people it just clicks and you cannot imagine how did things before. I am one of those people. Maybe you are.
