We’ve heard from many Time Trackers users that it would be helpful to have a BlackBerry application for tracking time spent on customer work. Two weeks ago we released TimeCatcher as a new way to track time with your BlackBerry. The application is free, and it does not require a QuickBooks Time Tracker account.
The vision for TimeCatcher is to automatically capture time you’ve spent on customer work. You can convert phone calls and appointments, manually enter a specific amount of time, and use a timer. TimeCatcher replaces Time Tracker for BlackBerry, which was a private application we tested with select Time Tracker customers.
Please note: TimeCatcher does not currently integrate with QuickBooks Time Tracker or QuickBooks seamlessly. TimeCatcher exports timesheet data as a spreadsheet attached to an email. To get your data into QB Time Tracker and QuickBooks, you will have to manually enter time data from the spreadsheet into your software.
TimeCatcher is still in its infancy, so if you encounter any issues please contact us. We look forward to your feedback.

What problem did we solve?
Many time trackers also use Microsoft Outlook. Most of their
billable time is already recorded on their calendar in the form of
meetings, scheduled jobs, and email messages. Time Tracker for
Microsoft Outlook allows these time trackers to bill for their time
directly from Outlook, without having to re-enter that time in a a
separate timesheet. They simply highlight a calendar entry or email
message, fill in some basic information, then send it to the Time
Tracker service. If a new time entry is required, entering basic
information in an easy-to-complete form is all that it takes to record
and send it.
Why is it designed the way it is?
The key to making time entry attractive to professionals is making
it quicker and easier than recording time manually. Creating a time
entry with Time Tracker for Microsoft Outlook is as easy as sending an
email. The time entry form was designed by billing professionals for
billing professionals, with features to make entering time nearly
Show me how it works:
You can even edit time entries directly from your calendar.
Let’s say you have an email message in your In box that you’d like
to bill a customer for. You highlight the email, click Send to Time
Tracker, fill out some basic information, and it’s on its way to the
Time Tracker server.
If you need to edit an entry before it’s downloaded into QuickBooks,
you can do that directly from Time Tracker for Microsoft Outlook.
Entering and editing time is quick and easy!
