Now that I am switching to contract work, one of the things I need to do is keep track of my billable hours for clients. Haven’t been a salaried employee for the last 15 years, hours worked wasn’t something I ever needed to keep track of. But, now it’s vital to get paid correctly and on time.
I originally looked at all the professional apps & services out there & found myself settling on Harvest. But, then I thought to myself, I should be able to manage this on my own. So, I spent a weekend playing with iOS Shortcuts and this is what I came up with: a very simple set of shortcuts that tracks my time & allows me to create invoices.
The best thing? You only need 3 apps: the default iOS calendar app, Shortcuts, and Data Jar.
This video will walk you through the shortcuts. And you can download them at the links below.
If you use them and/or edit them, please let me know as I would love to see what you did to improve it and make it your own.
