App designed as a reliable time tracking software to help in measuring of team members performance. App allows users to track time for issues and store worked time on Redmine automatically, so there is no way that user can forget to report spent time by the end of the day.

App helps to collect spent time on tasks as accurate as possible. It can remind user to start time tracker after a coffee break or stop timer automatically if user was too long away from PC/Laptop.

Time will be stored as a common Redmine "Time Entries", so spent time will be visible with standard Redmine functionality and it also compatible with third party plugins that use "time entries" for analytics, reports, etc.

Beside time tracking functionality there is "Co-workers" and "Staff Manager" tools that allow managers to monitor users in real time.
