Like many others, I bill my time to projects for both internal time tracking and client work. I have a time recording system that’s well integrated with the rest of my project management arsenal, and while these announcements won’t impact me directly, it is interesting to see the use of the Apple Watch for starting and stopping billing against a project. I’ve often contemplated other ways of inferring what people are working on based on the documents they are writing in, the Intranet page or section they are visiting, the meetings they are in, etc.
In terms of Billings Pro, MarketCircle says:
Being able to easily track time when you’re on the go or in a client meeting is key for maintaining accurate time slips. But pulling out your iPhone or iPad to start a timer while in a client meeting can be a bit of a faux pas, as it’s expected that you give your clients your full attention. Now with Billings Pro on the Apple Watch, you can discreetly track your time with just a tap on your wrist.
After the meeting, use Handoff to immediately view the time slip on your iPhone where you can add a title and any comments that you need.
