Quasima Chrono Tracker

#1 Post by smaragdus » Sun May 27, 2018 9:30 pm

Preamble
It often happens that when commercial programs switch to freeware the license change remains unnoticed. Several days ago I discovered accidentally that a program with a commercial background- Quasima Chrono Tracker, had become a unrestricted freeware, for both personal and commercial use. Because this is a powerful, sophisticated, feature-rich and highly customizable program and because it has portable version I decided to introduce it to The Portable Freeware community.

Synopsis
Quasima Chrono Tracker is a time tracking application for Windows desktop.
It allows you to keep track of multiple projects and categorize how much time you spent working on each of them.
Features
  • unlimited number of projects organized into a hierarchical structure
  • totals calculated across time and projects
  • invoicing support: project rates & "invoiced" marker
  • reliable database foundation and data backups
  • seamless updates
  • runs on Microsoft Windows XP (SP3) and up
  • free for both personal & commercial use

  • Run the portable installer (chronotracker-release-portable-30416.exe as of version 3.4.16) and choose extraction location;

Impressive. This is the most full-featured tracker I've seen. So far I had been using KapowPunchClock and TaskLog (an autohotkey program) - these two don't come anywhere near Quasima, feature-wise. Will give this a thourough test ride.
Thanks for mentioning it.

This software is outstanding. I`ve been using it for ages now. But curious, how come it never made the database? Seems lots of stuff in the forum never makes it?

Once upon a time, Andrew handled all the program additions but over time it's been switched over to a more democratic process. Hopefully that means that only really solid programs get in. Anyway, you're welcome to start things off by adding it to the database.

I have added Quasima Chrono Tracker to the database. Please vote!

I think it is a unique and outstanding app, and its .NET4 dependency shouldn't take away from that.
