Time tracking and ADHD

If you live with ADHD, you know how challenging it can be to track how long you spend on client projects.

Somedays you get so immersed in your projects that you completely lose the concept of time.

Somedays you’re constantly switching between projects and have no idea how long you actually spent on each one.

Somedays you’re scrambling last minute to finish a project that you didn’t leave yourself enough time to complete.

You know there’s a big difference in how long you think you spent doing something and how long you actually spent.

Learn how Clockk helps professionals with ADHD track their time while embracing the way you work.

“If I get immersed into a project, I will forget that the world exists”

It’s as if the world around you disappears and time seems to slip through your fingers. By the end of the day, you have no clue how much time that project consumed, making it extremely difficult to bill your clients accurately.

Clockk is an AI-powered time tracking app that runs in the background, automatically recording your computer activity. Embrace your moments of hyperfocus without the burden of time tracking. Find the apps you used, websites you visited, your email, and calendar grouped by project/client in Clockk’s Activity view.

“I have a standard of ADHD of complete time blindness. If I get immersed in a project, I will forget the world exists, much less track time. So it's literally been a struggle for years, and I've tried everything. I tried Harvest. I tried all those other tools. And then all of a sudden I started googling and Clockk came up.” -Cecily Kellogg

“In the same 10-minute period, I might touch all five or six clients.”

Having to remember to start and stop a timer EVERY time you switch between projects is inefficient and easy to forget. It’s nearly impossible to capture all your hours accurately, which means you’re likely not billing for all the time you’ve worked.

Clockk is a game-changer for professionals with ADHD who thrive in a dynamic, multitasking work environment. With Clockk, there's no need to remember to start or stop timers, allowing you to embrace your natural workflow. Clockk allows you to seamlessly transition between different projects throughout the day, while still having a reliable record of your time spent on each one.

Clockk has unique technology that can differentiate different projects within the same app. Let’s say you’re a social media manager handling multiple Twitter accounts for different clients. Instead of giving you the total amount of time you spent in Twitter, Clockk will break it down by project so you can accurately capture and bill for all the time you spent on each client.

“I never dreamed I would ever find an app like this. I have ADHD and my brain (and behaviour on the computer) are usually all over the place. This helps me soooo much. So Thank you! <3” -Anne-Mieke Bovelett

“If you asked me how long it took me to design, I would have said it took me half the time it did.”

Ever find yourself scrambling to finish a project that you didn’t leave yourself enough time to complete? Have you lost revenue on a project because it ended up taking significantly more time than you initially estimated? When you don’t know how much time a job needs it’s hard to create accurate project proposals and make informed business decisions.

With Clockk, you’ll know exactly how long projects take you. Create accurate proposals for your clients. Determine when its time to adjust your rates, and plan your day with confidence. Find your total tracked time in the reports section, where you can filter and sort the data by day, client, or project to get the exact information you need.

“With Clockk, I not only create more accurate proposals, I have also raised my hourly rate because I know I'm more efficient. So if I'm going to do things quickly, I don't want to lose money doing them, so I had to raise my rate. And that's what having that knowledge of how much time things takes me.“ -Cecily Kellogg

“I try to create a lifestyle where I eliminate as much of the items that stress me out as I can.”

The last thing you want to think about after a busy day is how long you spent on each project. Sorting through your emails, calendars, and to-do lists to figure out how much time you spent on each project is time-consuming, stressful, and prone to mistakes.

With Clockk, you can use the Assign Always feature to automatically assign your work to projects. If you Assign Always, Clockk will automatically assign that same task to the designated project in the future, simplifying your workflow even further.

“As a freelancing entrepreneur with ADHD, it can often feel like a full-time job itself to figure out how much time I spent on any given thing.” - Evie Hartman

Why users with ADHD love Clockk

“Living with ADHD, my entire concept of time has to live outside of my brain, so I'm already so thrilled with how much Clockk supports that. 😄 Also my memory. That has to live outside of my brain too. 😂” -Evie Hartman

I love the idea because I totally need this app and something that will help me track my activities since I'm ADHD and am not kidding when I say I hit a gazillion things a day. ;) -Betty Jeng

“I have made many attempts to try to do daily timesheets entry. I don't think that's ever going to be the case for me. It's not my work pattern. I am ADHD and jump around a lot. And so before Monday morning, I'd get logged in, I would open my calendar, I'd open my Slack, I would open a Jira filter and see what tickets I've worked on. I would have my email open and try to synthesize what was done based on all those things. Go through day by day and say, okay, here's my calendar blocks. I know these were there. What else did I do? So really go around to each of my different workspaces and manually collect that information.” -Luke Thorson

“Clockk provides me with more accurate information about what I'm doing and how I spend my time. As a freelancer with multiple clients, I'm constantly swapping between tasks. Like in the same 10-minute period, I might touch all five or six clients. So this gives me the freedom to know exactly where I'm spending my time. And it's also allowed me to push back on clients who are like, I don't understand why you can't get this done.” -Cecily Kellogg

“The next time I quote, I have a memory of what were the actual hours I spent on that project, and I can be more accurate in estimating going forward, which is a hugely beneficial thing to know.” -Jane Bekker

“Clockk literally paid for itself in the first month that I purchased it because of all the extra time I was able to bill for clients when I wasn't realizing I was spending three minutes here and four minutes there. That stuff adds up. Each month is different for me but I would have to estimate that I'm billing probably 25 % to 50 % more per month than I typically would have otherwise.” -Richard Zimbalist

“It's very easy for me to end my day thinking I haven't accomplished anything. Because I've only done pieces of projects. But with clock, when I go in the next morning, I'm like, Oh, Jesus, why were you so hard on yourself? Look how much you did. So that's another gift. It's just that ability to stop beating myself up.” -Cecily Kellogg

“Clockk is a massive game-changer for me and how I operate. I can focus on being creative and getting work done and not spend time tracking hours in spreadsheets!” -Marcel Whelan

“Multi-project time tracking is critically important to keeping my sanity. Clockk allows me to track all my time, not just one task at a time. Efficiency experts urge us not to multi-task because it destroys our productive outputs, yet I still do it every day because I am a scattered creative type with no impulse control.” -Bradley Leese

“Clockk has helped me the most with billing accurately, because when I would start and stop time, I forget. Sometimes I would go do something else and didn’t start the timer. Being able to track websites has helped me to bill more accurately, too. When billing hourly, that's important.” -Beth Schendel

The first week using Clockk I was horrified because at least one of my clients is getting double hours than what she pays for. -Cecily Kellogg

“Clockk takes away the guesswork of what you worked on today. Which app did you work on? Which website? Which page on the website? How many hours did you spend on a project? It could have been two, it could have been one. I would just write one or one and a half when really it was 3 hours. This is very important for me.” -Felix Schulze

“I pay for Clockk out of pocket myself because it just makes my life easier and makes it less stressful to do the thing I hate the most, which is tracking my time.” -Luke Thorson

“Now I am free to switch between client projects when required, confidently in the knowledge that Clockk will have me covered. Clockk has truly made time tracking effortless, allowing me to focus on what matters most - deliver quality work for our clients.” -Richard Harvey

“I was able to send a much more accurate proposal for work yesterday because I knew how much time it would actually take me, and that is the gift that clock has given me.” -Cecily Kellogg

“Now I am free to switch between client projects when required, confidently in the knowledge that Clockk will have me covered. Clockk has truly made time tracking effortless, allowing me to focus on what matters most - deliver quality work for our clients.” -Richard Harvey

“Before I realized it, I'm spending an hour and a half on this project, but I thought it was going to be a five, 10 minute thing. So Clockk was really able to help me gather that information and the actual data for how long I'm working with people so I can bill them at an appropriate time.” -Richard Zimbalist

“What I like about what Clockk does is free brain space. I try to create a lifestyle where I eliminate as much of the items that stress me out and stuff like that as humanly can. So when I got Clockk, I did not know the extent to which it would do that for me, that it would free brain space and allow me to have less of this stressful mental load.” -Cecily Kellogg

“Before I used Clockk I used My Google calendar, and I had to basically every now and again go back and go, Okay, what happened this day? What did I work on here? Then I just had this beautiful tapestry that happened on my Google calendar. Now the beautiful tapestry happens on Clockk. Except I didn't sit there and do the thing, it happens automatically, which is fantastic.” -Jane Bekker

“I’ve tried other tools. They all required that I start and stop a Timer. They all required that I track how many hours and then input it, but I won’t. I don't have time. If I put in a twelve-hour day. Clockk is so efficient. There's so few unassigned things at this point, and I'm only what, three weeks in a month, maybe?” -Cecily Kellogg
