Get complete visibility over all the time you spend developing programs and apps in Microsoft Visual Studio with automatic time tracking.

Track time in Visual Studio

Timely makes every second you spend in Visual Studio accountable:

  • Track all the time you spend in Visual Studio (IDE, VSTS, Code and App Center)
  • Quantify resources spent on development
  • Bill clients accurately for all project time
  • Estimate future projects accurately
  • Optimize your productivity and time efficiency

And it’s completely automatic. No wasting time with manual timers; Timely tracks all the time you spend in Visual Studio in the background without forcing you to leave the app.

Connect in a click
